A bit of history...
The Starship Fearless, a Star Trek fan club located in the Permian Basin of West Texas, originally began as the Shuttle Galileo in July of 1993. After some initial difficulties involving our Regional Vessel Advocate (RVA) and our Treasurer, our organization was re-named the Fearless in January of 1994. In November of that same year, the Shuttle Fearless was officially launched by StarFleet, an international organization of Star Trek fans. Our status increased to "Starship" in October of 1996 with the assignment of our vessel number NCC-74989, and we held our Launch Party on September 28, 1996.
But in early 1997, we began to question if we really wanted to stay in StarFleet. Delivery of the StarFleet newsletter, The Communiqué, was sporadic at best. And there were other problems as well.
Our first elected President had a motto: "The ranks are fictional, the fun's for real". Unfortunately, few in StarFleet seemed to share this philosophy. Our current President, Captain Becky Norris, was getting tired of checking her e-mail only to find yet another message from a StarFleet officer stating that so-and-so was no good at their job, and that they could do much better.
Early on, our own organization faced problems with people
taking the political power far too seriously, but we had successfully shook
out that particular personality trait, and had distilled the group down to
those who just wanted to have fun (the original purpose of any fan club).
Now it seemed we had matured beyond our parent organization. The debate
to stay or leave boiled down to two points:
What is StarFleet doing for us?
Are we having fun?
When it soon became clear that the answers were
Not a lot
the vote was cast in May of 1997 to break from StarFleet, and become a "renegade" Starship. As we seemed to be "out in the badlands" with no support anyway, it was only natural to consider ourselves Maquis. Once we hit the Internet, we found out that we weren't the only Starship which was a little fed up with how StarFleet was running things, and that there was an entire fleet of Maquis ships out there.

We have a downloadable "morph" movie detailing the evolution of the Starship Enterprise from the original to the NCC-1701D. (1.4 MEG AVI)

Here are all the regular monthly columns of our Fearless Leader (we can get away with calling her that), Captain Becky Norris, lifted from our newsletter, The Fearless Informer. They not only make for entertaining reading, but also provide a good historical overview of our organization.

Faith, by Fearless crewmember John Comeaux, is a script which got as far as being submitted by an agent and read by the Star Trek staff. It ran in The Fearless Informer from January to October of 1995. In this sequel to "Pen Pals", the Enterprise returns to Sarjenka's planet, only to find a world polarized between the clashing forces of faith and reason. Also, a Starfleet observer makes plain his intention to replace Picard as Captain of the Enterprise!
Fearless crewman David Wright wrote a Deep Space Nine story for our newsletter called Passages. Quark eagerly awaits the arrival of a race known as the Thrall, reputed to be shrewd traders. But will the Thrall out-Ferengi the Ferengi?
In this romantic "what if" story by Sherilyn Brown, the Enterprise-E is destroyed, and her crew marooned in the past. Picard and Crusher find themselves growing closer, but how can they possibly consumate their love without disrupting the timeline? The name of the story is Whispers at Twilight.
We've had conventions here in the Permian Basin featuring Majel Barrett-Roddenbury, Wil Wheaton, and Armin Shimerman. While Armin was in town, Fearless crewmember Mary Kuntz got to ask him a few questions. The result was Quarkal Reality: A Real Life Interview with Armin Shimerman.
Here's a few cartoons David Wright has drawn for
