Boldly Writing outlines the club's role in Star Trek fandom: "The LNSTFCCF had a short but influential history, especially because it published one of the first fanzine listings later in [1971]... compiled by Jacqueline Lichtenberg, [it] contained fanzine data and statistics only. Of the 57 fanzines listed, 30 were identified as discontinued or suspected of having been discontinued, and 25 did not respond to the LNSTFCCF survey. Those who responded gave statistics on the circulation, dates published, contents, etc. Spockanalia showed the highest circulation (500), Captain's Log the lowest (20)." [3]

Strekfan Roster Questionnaire

The club also sponsored the 'Strekfan Roster Questionnaire' which was included in a number of zines. "This was the first announcement of a survey of Star Trek fans. Although LNSTFCCF folded before completing the survey, Jacqueline Lichtenberg, who originated the questionnaire and analyzed the data, sent the results to other fanzines and included them in Star Trek Lives!" [4]

Complete list of zines that the Roster Questionnaire was in: Pastaklan Vesla #3, T-Negative #9/10, The Voyages #1, Impulse #3, Galileo II, and the LNSTFCCF Yearbook.
