IDIC

IDIC was a general Star Trek club run by the ScoTpress team. It had an international membership and published 48 bi-monthly newsletters of between 80 – 100 pages. The IDIC newsletter covered all aspects of Star Trek; ST:TOS, ST:TNG, ST:DS9 and ST:VOY. Articles in the newsletters included news, actor and character profiles, convention reports, book and zine reviews, misc Star Trek articles written by members, poetry and an active postbag section. December 1988 – October 1996

The club also published a fanzine, IDIC Log #1-19 (TOS & TNG, 1989-1996.)

IDIC is the name of a Vulcan symbol, and an acronym for the philosophy behind it: “Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations”. This was parodied by writer Frederic Mullally, in his scripts for the raunchy satirical comic strip “Oh, Wicked Wanda!”, as IPIP – “Infinite Pleasure, Infinitely Prolonged”.
