JOIN THE ADVENTURE

BECOME A FEDERATION OFFICER

In 1983, during the first discussion on the design of our organization, Federation founder and ‘Star Trek’ creator Gene Roddenberry issued our prime directive:  “Do what the crew of the Enterprise does in every episode.  Go places and help people.”

For over 35 years, members and chapters of The Federation have done exactly that.  Join us as we work to help those in need today to help bring about a brighter future.

Support Our Humanitarian Missions

The members and chapters of The Federation around the world focus on the needs of those in their local areas.  At times of major disaster, our headquarters offices coordinate those efforts to dispatch aid, funds and volunteers to the victims.

Among our arsenal of tools to dispatch help is the Galileo, our first Disaster Relief vehicle.  Galileo and her trailer, Pod 1, serve the Midwest US, transporting aid, assistance and volunteers to those in need.  It is our plan to establish such vans in all parts of the world.

Donations to The Federation Humanitarian Fund are tax-deductible and 100% goes to help those in need.  We never deduct a percentage for operating or administrative costs like most other charities.

Sky Conway

Producer, ‘Roddenberry on Patrol’ & ‘Star Trek: Of Gods and Men’

“Gene Roddenberry would be so proud of IFT’s continuing mission of carrying on his dream and legacy. Twenty-Five years of bolding going where no Star Trek Organization has gone before is quite an accomplishment. Kudos to Russ and all of the members of IFT who have kept the dream alive.”

 

Susan Sackett

Executive Assistant to the late Gene Roddenberry
Author, “Inside Trek”

“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!”

 

Gary Berman & Adam Malin

Owners, Creation Entertainment

“Creation Entertainment extends a sincere and hearty congratulations on your 25 years as a proud Star Trek fan organization. Over the years we’ve worked with and gotten to know many of you, and it has been both an honor and great fun sharing our love of Star Trek. Now with the new film and a whole new generation of fans discovering how great Trek is, we can look back in pride and say, it’s been a great ride. Our congratulations, once again, on your wonderful achievement.”

 

Eugene ‘Rod’ Roddenberry, Jr.

Owner, Roddenberry Productions

“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.”

 

George Takei

Captain Hikaru Sulu, USS EXCELSIOR NCC-2001

“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.”

 

Bjo Trimble

Super ‘Star Trek’ Fan; Creator of the “Save Star Trek Campaign” in 1967

“This group’s intense but friendly dedication to Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek ideals is awesome; they are a bright facet in the meaning of IDIC!”

 

Andrew Probert

Graphic Designer, “Star Trek”

“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.”
