At first meeting in Jean's parents' home, it soon moved to the campus of San Diego State University, where 100-300 Star Trek fans would gather monthly. S.T.A.R. San Diego held frequent costume competitions, rented movies (then on 16mm film!) and held trivia contests, among other activities.
The group's horizons rapidly expanded into all forms of science fiction, fantasy and horror, although Star Trek remained its primary focus. Occasional guest speakers included Greg Bear, William F. Nolan, and Theodore Sturgeon, as well as other SF writers and physics professors from the local universities.
