About Our Parent Organization

The Hadfield is a member chapter of STARFLEET: The International Star Trek Fan Association Inc., a non-profit, completely fan run organization who like to have fun and enjoy life. 

STARFLEET itself was founded in 1974, and later incorporated as a non-profit organization in the state of North Carolina in the United States of America. With close to 4000 members throughout the world, STARFLEET is one of the largest completely fan run organizations in the world. 

Members throughout STARFLEET feel that it's important for people to know that we're run by our own members, and that we're not part of a large for-profit entity. Some people have issues with large for-profit organizations running an organization such as ours, so we want to assure each and every one of you that your membership dues go to pay for the newsletters and services that you receive, and not into the pocket of someone who is making a profit from you. 

Region 13, the geographic area that we reside in, is made up of the provinces of Ontario, Manitoba, the state of Michigan and the territory of Nunavut. We're a small, but close knit group of chapters with more Star Trek fans joining us from all around our region.
