Who are we? We are YOU!

We are dads, moms, grandparents, teachers, kids, scientists, engineers, and space geeks. We are those who reach out into the Universe to seek answers to those deep questions: Where did we come from, and are we alone?

We are wowed and awed by the discovery of new things, the mysteries of science, the innovations of technology, the bravery of astronauts, and by the stunning images sent back to us from other worlds.

We know that space exploration is vital to humankind...and it is just plain fun!

I am Lieutenant Kayla Kay, Commanding Officer of Canada Station, an official chapter of Starfleet Command Quadrant One. I am 29 years old and since I was a small child I've been watching Star Trek, Stargate, Star Wars, etc. Of course the always beloved Bill Nye The Science Guy.
