MITRE Bedford SF Group Fan Clubs

This list of Science Fiction fan clubs is mostly for the Boston area. Note that the International Federation of Trekkers, Starfleet, and Starfleet Command are all international fan clubs, independent of each other, but with very similar organizations, where each local chapter takes the name of a fictional Starfleet vessel. There are similar fan clubs for Romulans and Klingons, with no local chapters. Fan-run convention organizations are listed here, but commercial con companies are listed in the Stores file. The data here is not guaranteed to be current. Updates are welcome, to
