Welcome to the home of Starfleet International's U.S.S. Lafitte & the Calcasieu Area Trekkers Society! We're a diverse group of individuals united by one common theme: Our love of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre. Under our broad umbrella you'll find fans of video media such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, the Whedonverse (Some of us do double-duty as members of the SWLA Browncoats!), and Tolkienverse, to name just a few. Many of our members are well-read, having perused the works of genre greats like Issac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Larry Niven, Robert Heinlein, Ben Bova, and so many more. We're proud to say that comics and anime have strong roots in our membership as well.
Do you like genre conventions? Have you ever attended one? Well, we're all about the convention-hopping, folks! Several times a year, members will group together to visit fun and exciting Anime, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Model, and Tech conventions all over the south, including our favorite, DragonCon, not to mention visiting the odd Renaissance Festival or two!
Speaking of conventions, we also sponsor and man Southwest Louisiana's premier Anime, Gaming and Sci-Fi/Fantasy Convention, CyPhaCon!
So, feel free to join us at a meeting or other posted venue, and again, welcome!
