How to Apply for the NASA Federal Star Trek Credit Card

Are you a trekkie? Are you a NASA employee that fantasizes about becoming a member of Starfleet? Well, with the NASA Federal Star Trek Credit Card you can own a Star Trek themed NASA Federal Credit Union (NASA FCU) credit card that not only looks cool, but offers competitive rates and rewards. So you can proudly pay for your gas with the Captain’s Card and get 2 reward points per dollar spent. “Fill me up Scotty!” You also get 3 points per dollar spent at and 1 point per dollar spent on all other purchases. The variable APR is fairly reasonable for this card as it ranges between 10.15% and 17.99% (APR is subject to change). There is also no balance transfer fee which makes this a great candidate for debt consolidation, if this is something you’re looking to do. There is an annual fee of $39 for the NASA Federal Star Trek Credit Card, which is reasonable considering the rate and rewards program. Would you like to join the Starfleet?
