Stella Nova is one of New Zealand's largest science fiction fandom associations. Originally known as the Science Fiction Modellers' Club of New Zealand, it is based in Auckland, the country's largest city, where it is the largest sf fan club, catering for fans of science fiction, fantasy, and related activities such as role-playing gaming. As of August 2008, the club had about 30 members.
While currently more quiescent, the club's activities have previously included model-making, producing fan videos, and publishing a fanzine.
Members of Stella Nova have been run several New Zealand National Science Fiction Conventions, including OdysseyCon in 2001, EmotiCon in 2003, ConTour in 2004, Conclave in 2006, and ConScription in 2009. (New Zealand National Science Fiction Conventions are held each year, frequently alternating between Auckland and Wellington.)
Philippa Boyens, Norman Cates, Mary MacLachlan, and Wayne Taz Stables are ex-members who have been active in the club's model-making or fan video production, and have since progressed to fantasy film production on feature films such as The Lord of the Rings (film series).
