It's time to put on your Star Trek uniform. Polish your pips and set a course for the 8th Sci-Fi Collectables Fair and DS9 Market Day. Maximum warp!

The Queensland Star Trekkers Fan Club Star Fleet Officers invite you to down the DS9 promenade (Fortitude Valley Trinity Centre) for a day of Ferengi trading on Sunday 19th July.

Bring along your tricorder to scan the collectables on offer, target a bargain at your discretion and enter into inter-species negotiations for your collectable prize between 10.30am and 2.30pm.

Humans, Star Trek Personnel, Trills, Bolians, Ferengi, Bajorans, Cardassians, Klingons, and other inter-galactic species are all welcome and encouraged to browse, pick up a bargain, taste the food fair and make new friends with like-minded sci-fi buffs.

There will be lucky door prizes, raffles for the day (you must be present to collect your prize) and Captain Kirk's Chair.

Make sure you sit in Captain Kirk's Chair, get a photo and say, "Mr. Sulu, take us out!"

Rations will be available for purchase on the day: a selection of cold drinks, chocolate, chips and lunch options.

You may know that William Shatner became the Queensland Star Trekkers Fan Club Patron in April 2011. Then in April 2015, the club had the pleasure of extending the Club's Honorary Membership to Nichelle Nicols, George Takei and Walter Koenig.

The Queensland Star Trekkers Fan Club is a non-profit (since 1977). They are super friendly and would love to have you come along to share in the sci-fi treasures at the fair. If you're looking to join the fan club, you can find out more at their website.

"Resistance is Futile," so get along to the 8th Sci-Fi Collectables Fair and DS9 Market Day. All you need to do is get into the spirit of things, have a good time, relax and imagine you are exploring bold new worlds.
