STARFLEET: The International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc., also known as STARFLEET International or just plain STARFLEET, is an association for the fans of the Star Trek television and film series. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, STARFLEET is the world's largest science fiction fan club, currently numbering 4,234 members in 237 separate chapters around the globe, according to the most recent count.

STARFLEET is incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation under the laws of the State of North Carolina, the United States of America, and has been granted 501(c)(7) status by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. The organization derives its organizational structure from the fictional Starfleet organization depicted in Star Trek, and within the organization the name 'STARFLEET' is used exclusively to denote the fan movement, while 'Starfleet' refers to the fictional entity.

STARFLEET places emphasis on community service, and encourages its chapters to take part in charitable fundraising activities and other public services.

The organization has members worldwide and splits the world into 20 regions, each with a coordinator who supervises activities in his or her region and sits on the Admiralty Board, which acts as the corporate board of directors for the association. If members, usually living in geographical proximity, choose to form a group among themselves, they become a chapter of STARFLEET, taking the fictional form of a starship, space station or other vessel along the lines of those in Star Trek. Each member is given a fictional rank to show time in membership and contribution to fan activities.

STARFLEET organizes a STARFLEET Academy, where STARFLEET members can take exams related to Star Trek trivia and general knowledge, amongst other themes. It also has a sub-group, named the STARFLEET Marine Corps, made up of members who prefer to roleplay as military, rather than naval, personnel.

Among other publications, STARFLEET produces a bi-monthly publication called The Communiqué, which all members receive. STARFLEET has also published fan fiction in the 5-volume Stellar Visions.

Space Station Bennu[]

Bennu Station has been a Starfleet International correspondence chapter based in Gatlinburg, Tennessee since 04 January 1994. (STARFLEET Vessel Registry, May 2011)

It began as the shuttlecraft (i.e., chapter-in-training) Le Conte and launched as the USS LeConte in early 1994. The original commanding officer was Ron Fell and the chapter prospered, doing much for charity in the Sevier County, Tennessee area. The LeConte began the tradition of Regional Summits in Region One by hosting the first ever in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 1995. The event eventually moved to the Pigeon Forge, Tennessee area and was a firm annual event until around 2012. This event was attended by 150 to 200 members of the Fleet from many Regions. One of the happy consequences of the Regional Summits was the ability to send several local students to Space Camp (United States) thanks to monetary donations by the members of Starfleet International who attended the event as well as by various fundraising events held by the chapter throughout the year.

The chapter's name was changed after an internal dispute that resulted in Captain Fell's leaving the area and then Ben Redding being voted in as the new commanding officer of the newly-named Bennu Station. Bennu Station has contributed to food drives for the local food bank and animal shelter, participated in movie premieres, marches in Christmas and July 4th parades with the (now defunct) shuttle model. The Bennu members have also acted as judges for County Schools Science Fairs on numerous occasions. For several years, the members have met twice a week to collect the day-old baked goods from a local supermarket to take them to the Children's Home in Sevierville, Tennessee.
