in Jacksonville, Florida, the USS Exeter NCC-1706 is a shuttle
of the USS Republic
NCC-1371, based in Atlanta, Georgia. Both groups are
chapters of STARFLEET International
and members of STARFLEET
Region 2, which includes Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi
and the Caribbean Islands.
The Exeter's commanding officer, Commander John R. Sims, and the Republic's commanding officer, Captain Eric L. Watts, began working together to start a new chapter in Jacksonville in April 2008. The Exeter received its official name and registry authorization from STARFLEET in May 2008, held its first organizational meeting in June 2008 and was officially launched by Region 2 as a chapter-in-training in October 2008. As a chapter-in-training, the Exeter is currently undergoing its commissioning protocol and working towards its official commissioning. Exeter and Republic commanders are both working towards completing the commissioning protocol by summer 2009 and hope to be officially commissioned by STARFLEET at Dragon*Con in Atlanta in September 2009.
