Aww shucks! That’s so nice of you to say!
Roddenberry Productions and the Roddenberry Family are strong supporters of the “International Federation of Trekkers”. My father before me was a friend to Russ Haslage and IFT’s membership. I personally feel that “International Federation of Trekkers” represents and upholds the philosophies that are found in the core of Star Trek’s stories. As a result, I consider them to be ambassadors to the Roddenberry name and my father’s vision of a greater future for all life on earth.” Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry, Jr.
The core values of ‘Star Trek’ and the driving vision of Gene Roddenberry are to build a healthy, creative and tolerant society with each individual taking active responsibility. This I have seen vibrantly alive in the work of IFT. Their many activities in support of charities, community and social services are exemplars of this ideals. Their vast global network of ships and alliances are living demonstrations of the ideal of ‘infinite diversity in infinite combinations.’ Their spirit of adventure combined with camaraderie reflects the same qualities Gene infused into Starfleet. The Roddenberry ideals continue to trek on with the IFT.” George Takei
The Federation Relief Missions Task Force
Federation chapters around the world focus on the needs of their local communities. In times of major need, Federation HQ coordinates the efforts of those chapters to provide relief on a major scale where it is needed anywhere in the world. Won’t you join us as we go places and help people?
Relief Mission Teams
The Federation Relief Mission Teams are always standing by to fulfill our primary mission: go places and help people.
Go Places And Help People
In the first meeting between Gene Roddenberry and Russ Haslage to discuss the formation of The Federation, Gene gave us our prime directive. Do what the crew of the Enterprise does in every episode…go places and help people. The Federation has been serving others for over 32 years.
Oh stop! You’re making us blush!
Much applause to the IFT and its members for keeping alive the spirit of “Star Trek” and holding to the ideas and ideals of its creator, Gene Roddenberry. May they continue to “boldly go” into a long and prosperous future!” Susan Sackett
Back in the early sixties, Gene Roddenberry produced a piece of television entertainment that was more than just another show. It was a blueprint for an optimistic future that we can all have, given the ideals of that show: ‘STAR TREK.’ IFT is working to foster those ideals toward the positive lifestyle that Gene envisioned and I salute them for their efforts and dedication.” Andrew Probert
