The USS Mawson, NCC-74918, is a chapter of the International Federation of Trekkers, this fan organization is based on the iconic show created by Gene Roddenberry over 40 years ago. The USS Mawson is a meeting and correspondence chapter within what is referred to as GEO 51 by IFT. The Mawson has crew from all over Australasia and other parts of the world and we welcome all new members. Our aim is to have fun in the company of like-minded people who enjoy the imaginative and exciting world of Sci Fi and Fantasy. Members of the USS Mawson participate in meetings, either in person or on-line and by postings on our Yahoo site, club events, taking exams at the Mawson Institute of Learning and Knowledge (MILK) and Conventions. The USS Mawson was first established in January 2006 by our current CO Stuart Blair and officially launched as a Starship on 21st April 2007 by 'Admiral William Ross' (actor Barry Jenner, DS9).
