Founded in 2006, The Colonial Fleet originated as a Battlestar Galactica costuming group at Dragon Con. We were inspired by the exciting and unpretentious themes from the show to shape our own culture. Values such as devotion to family, selfless teamwork, running a tight ship with diverse crew, and keeping a fine-tuned sense of humor to deal with life's ups and downs. They say that you can't choose your family. We beg to differ. After all...the tribe that rolls the hard six together, stays together.
Over the years, we have grown into a passionate community across the United States, Canada, the UK and Australia. Although our roots began in BSG fandom, we have evolved into a proud and loyal family that celebrates the many positive aspects of geek culture. We love nerding out over different fandoms, planning group reunions & vacations, and helping out with charity. We are 100% volunteer-run. At the end of the day, our mission is to turn amazing friendships into timeless memories.
