The USS Angeles has succeeded in media projects, varying from our award-winning newsletter to our movie “USS Angeles: Price of Duty,” filmed in 1998-99 and involving several locations. The film inspired our video series, “Voyages of the USS Angeles,” which set the stage for the nationally acclaimed “Hidden Frontier” franchise. We also produced an audio episode. And we launched a successful website.
In addition, USS Angeles members have been featured on KCOP-TV news segments promoting “Star Trek.”
The USS Angeles has gone to many “Star Trek” conventions and was part of the start of Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. We came up with names for the menu items at Quark’s Bar and Grill. Our club went to The Experience annually.
We also were in the bleachers at the Hollywood premiere of the 2009 “Star Trek” movie. And Cirroc Lofton, aka Jake Sisko on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” has hosted us several times at his Cafe Cirroc in Culver City.
Today, you’ll find us anywhere from Disneyland to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to Sea World to the Magic Castle. And we have succeeded in community service projects ranging from AIDS Walk to packages for overseas troops.
