The theme for the 2018 International Conference is Family Reunion. We talk about STARFLEET being a family: sometimes funny, sometimes irritating, occasionally dysfunctional. But when the Romulans are poised at the edge of the neutral zone or storms and tragedy strike, we can call on our family for support, assistance, and a shoulder to lean on. Come join us in the beautiful Twin Cities to celebrate all the things that make us glad to be part of this crazy mixed up thing we call STARFLEET.

Minneapolis, St. Paul (really, it’s the capital!), and the many suburbs that make up the metroplex are collectively known as the “Twin Cities”. They are bisected by the Mississippi River which begins its journey to New Orleans somewhat north of our venue.

The Twin Cities are a cross-roads for culture, commerce, and travel. There are many small theatres offering a wide variety of live performances in addition to the Guthrie Theatre (see Area Attractions) and the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre which offers dinner & show packages. A number of large corporations call the area home including 3M (Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing) and the Target Corporation. Interstate Highway 94 and Interstate Highway 35 meet in the middle of the downtown area.

Opportunities to enjoy the outdoors are endless in summer or winter. There are numerous lakes, rivers, and parks. Hiking and bicycle trails are accessible from many of the parks. At least a couple of the lakes offer canoe rentals.

Whatever your preference for fun and relaxation, the Twin Cities can deliver! We look forward to sharing our cities with you and your families.

Come, join the reunion!
