The USS Sovereign is a Star Trek and Sci-Fi club that has served the Philadelphia area since 1990. It is a group that is comprised of persons from all walks of life and varying interests. The Sovereign is just one chapter of our parent organization STARFLEET International. STARFLEET was founded in 1974 and currently has over 250 chapters all over the world.

The crew meets the 2nd Saturday of the month at the CO’s quarters to discuss ships business and plan upcoming activities. Meetings are pretty laid back but structured. They begin around 12pm and end usually around 3pm, unless we are doing something special, like watching movies, gaming, or just hanging out to party.

Feel free to bring goodies from time to time to share with the crew.  Although its not a requirement it is a nice gesture and is greatly appreciated. Chocolate is food of choice for the majority of the crew who enjoy washing it down with a nice cold Pepsi.

The USS Sovereign is not just about meetings. We take our charity work very seriously. Our main charity we support is Drueding Center: Project Rainbow. Project Rainbow is a transitional housing program for women and children. Sovereign crew members will visit to do arts and crafts activities and spend time having fun with the children. We collect craft  and school supplies for the kids as well as clothing and household goods for the moms.

We also support Phila Childrens Alliance, Breast Cancer Awareness. We support our troops with various gift baskets sent to our men and women in uniform that we adopt.

Last, but not least USS Sovereign is all about the fun.  Our ship is comprised of over 30 folks who enjoy a multitude of activities. Some of our favorite events are PA Ren Faire, NYC trip, various Sci-fi conventions on the east coast. As well as our signature event Shore Leave convention held in Maryland. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year where we pull out all the stops not only to have fun but to raise money for charity.

Some of our newest events are Steampunk Worlds Faire, Dorians Parlor, Anime conventions, Wizard World Comic Con, Megabad Movie Nights and the list goes on and on.
