tarbase 972 was founded on May 1998 with the goal of uniting under one roof fans and enthusiasts of Star Trek in Israel.
Star Trek has thrilled millions of people all around the world for over four decades, as one of the most important and influential TV series in history.
Star Trek, since its first years in the 1960's, has ever been in the forefront of television storytelling, and has set the standards for science fiction on TV and feature film. The series is known for its adherence to scientific principles, and has incorporated scientific advisors to its production staff, as well as consulting NASA experts on the basic premises of the series as a whole as well as on specific storylines and ideas.
However, Star Trek's uniqueness in the media landscape is its creator's, Gene Roddenberry, and his vision, the Roddenberry vision. The vision of a positive future for all humanity, a future devout of war, famine, disease, a future where all men and women are equal and humanity is a unified force exploring a universe filled with mysteries and wonder. Star Trek is a unique voice on the TV screen not as a science fiction series, Star Trek is not about killer-robots or giant space battles. Star Trek is science fiction dealing with the basics of humanity and its values, dealing with moral, philosophical and scientific dilemmas, episode by episode.
This unique vision has motivated and swept millions of people around the world, and over the years a whole sub-culture of Star Trek fans, was born.
Ever since Starbase 972's foundation, the club has been organizing and supporting events, activities and conventions of varying scale – from regional weekly activities, to sneak previews of feature films to organizing events and conventions on a national scale and of course collaboration on the production of Icon, Israel's national science fiction and fantasy festival held annually on the Jewish holiday of Sukkoth. The club was publishing a quarterly part-color fanzine for its members and operating an internet site filled with Star Trek.
In recent years, the club has ceased to exist but this site is still active with Star Trek-related news and articles.
