Need a good name for a Star Trek club for law students
 
Hi everyone, I'm a law student and have recently been delighted to find a few other Trekkies at my school. We would like to get a club started and spread the word, but we can't think of a good name. The tagline could be the old standby, "It's Only Logical", but a pun- or reference-based name would be awesome. It's just a get-together-once-a-week-and-watch-what-we-feel-like club, so I don't want to make it sound all official or prestigious like the Starfleet ones. We also want to get the widest possible audience, so any reference can't be *too* obscure - we should probably stick to TOS or TNG.

Any ideas for a law and trek club? Thanks a ton!

Starfleet JAG Corps?

"The Samuel T. Cogley Memorial Reading Room."

Be aware, though, that once you become identified as "Trekkies," many of your fellow law students will likely begin referring to your group as something along the lines of "Future Court-Appointed Attorneys of America" or "The Follow That Ambulance! League" or some such. :D

Why not just be a bunch of people who get together and watch stuff? You can spread the word with posters saying "Star Trek watch party, such-and-such a time and place," and not have to worry about naming yourselves.

Yes this. For goodness sakes, is there any other option? Possibly the "S.L. Cogley Law Society."

This is great! Other options: Quid Pro Quark's, Tribble Damages. I could come up with others...

The Trek Chamber

(as opposed to The Star Chamber... Or I suppose you could do The Star (Trek) Chamber...)

I was thinking this very thing, or at least something involving Samuel T. Cogley.

Nobody will get Cogley reference. If you want to get people only mildly familiar or interested in Trek, then the only options would be "Beam Me Up", "I Need More Power" or "Make It So", and in that order.

If you want a serious club, then the above ideas that other people gave sound very good because they are more clever and fit better with the law theme.

Section 31, since it's an officially non-existant organization.

(And Section 31 undoubtedly has an army of legal experts)

See, that's my concern. I really do love the Cogley idea, but the point of picking a name at all is for advertising. We want to get more students involved, including those who have never seen Trek, but are curious. "Tribble Damages" is pretty good!
