The major fan group devoted to the Janeway/Chakotay pairing was JetC (standing for 'Janeway et Chakotay'), mailing lists whose members were originally part of BonC[1] (Beverly ON Jean-LuC), who carried over their idiomatic naming to their new community. JetC came into existence in 1996, and the main website received its last update in 2000[2]. Pronounced as a word it resembled "jetski" which led to the collective description of the lists as the 'Pond' (the surface of which the members would hypothetically jetski upon), and so the nickname for the members of the JetC lists was 'Pondies'.

JetC was not a single list, but a collection of them. The numbers of fans added to each list were limited, as as membership hit that limit, the list would be closed, and a new one started. Some members were involved in more than one JetC list at a time. There were, at the time JetC closed its doors, at least twenty four of these lists.

Each list usually had its own webpage, created by one of the group's members, which would host material created by that list. This could include, besides fiction, lists, art, screencaps, or anything else they found interesting enough to put online.
