The USS Yorktown is a social group based on Star Trek, but we enjoy a variety of genres. Our charter city is Kingsport, in which the bulk of our membership lives. Other Tennessee members live in Church Hill, Bristol, Nashville, and Clarksville, We also have two from Colorado Springs, Colorado. All are welcome! Our chapter is a proud member of Region 1, under STARFLEET International.
We do many fun activities, such camping, stargazing, hiking, games of all sorts, LARP, cosplay, pirate lore, Steampunk, and much more, usually in the northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia areas. But it isn't all fun and games with the Yorktown. We participate in many community service projects, such as Second Harvest Food Bank, Bristol's Promise, blood drives, charity fundraisers, the Salvation Army Angel Tree, Little Dresses for Africa, and the VFW. Recycling and other ways of taking care of our planet is also very important to us.
While you don't have to be a member of SFI to join our crew, it is encouraged. Out of the local area members must participate in meetings via Skype. Please visit our Contact Us page for more information.
