Sidney Maxwell was responsible for most the advent of Star Trek Clubs in the TriCities and encouraged many of us to become involved in SFI. Sidney was a WWII veteran and a Scottish Silversmith. He founded the USS Aries and served as its CO until his passing in 1993.
Brian Brooks was an early member and always a pleasure to be around. He loved to design new star ship classes and logos. He always had a ready smile.
Dennis Relyea was a wonderful friend and officer. He was always in a good mood and he is sorely missed. Dennis served proudly as OIC of the 1st BDE and ended his career as XO of the USS Alaric.
David Roberts, or more commonly known as DAR, was a truly unique and intelligent individual. He had many interests from writing poetry to anime. He treasured his friends. DAR finished his career as Chief Engineer of the USS Aries.
David was never a member of the Reprisal, but he attended many meetings and events during his last few years of life. He became a great friend to the crew. David had a keen interest in photography and took many beautiful images.
Everyone called Linda "Sissy" and she was such a joy to be around. She was so very excited when we promoted her to Lt. Commander. She brought a little sunshine into the life of everyone she met.
Frodo loved meeting nights because he loved to be petted by the crew and pick up any food that was dropped! He liked to wear his "Live Long and Pawsper" bandanna and became the unofficial mascot for the crew.
