We choose to put on Starbase Indy not because it is easy, but because it is hard. Because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because the challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win.


Starbase Indy is an all year-round effort to create an inspiring event that brings our geek family together in celebration of ideas and values that we want to share with our community At its heart is a core community who are inspired by Star Trek and who enjoy having fun with their friends. If you are looking for a smart, creative, idealistic, and industrious tribe of dorks, we may be just the dorks you are looking for.


The larger our crew, the further we can boldly go!


As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Use your skills in support of your community.

  • Learn new skills and put them into practice in a way that can build your professional resume.

  • Have a voice in shaping the future of Starbase Indy.

  • Enjoy the pleasure that comes from doing something challenging with a committed community of people.





A lot of our most popular programming is created by members of our local community. If you are passionate about something and want to share it with the Starbase Indy community, share your ideas with our programming team. Here are some types of events we host at Starbase Indy:
A presentation is a talk (with or without AV support) delivered by one person. This person is a subject matter expert of some sort, with education and experience related to the topic they’re presenting.
A panel is a discussion with multiple presenters who discuss the topic. 
A workshop / demonstration is a hands-on event where the presenter or presenters teach the audience members how to do or create something. Starbase Indy may offer reimbursement for workshop supplies.
A discussion is an opportunity for people who are interested in a topic to come together and talk about it. You don’t need any specific expertise for this, just a desire to talk with people who are interested in the same things you are.

Subject matter experts are often provided with a discounted or complimentary badge.
