What, exactly, is the Starfleet USO Show? Well, take your favorite bar or club and imagine it filled with all sorts of Star Trek aliens: Klingons sitting at a table in the corner, echoing in belly laughs, Cardassians sitting at the bar and keeping a close eye on their surroundings, Romulans nearby, with a disruptor on the table, in case anyone gets the wrong idea. Now, throw in some great music and entertainment, and let the bar start serving all of the classic drinks– Romulan Ale, Klingon Bloodwine, Bolian Rum, and Aldebaran Whiskey.
Now, last, but certainly not least, add a bunch of autographed auction and raffle items that have been donated from a ton of celebrities, and let the evening’s proceeds go to the USO, and you’ve got yourself a Starfleet USO Show!
The 1701st Fleet is proud of the relationship that we have built with the one and only United Service Organizations Inc., over the past few years or working with them. In a day and age where charity organizations come and go, and not all of them are what they claim to be, we are thrilled to be working with the original USO, founded in 1941. And while none of us can claim to come anywhere close to filling the shoes of the late and great Bob Hope, we can still do our part to support the men and women of the United States military by bringing fandom and patriotism together to “Support The Troops with Sci-Fi!”
While our Starfleet USO Show has been local to Texas thus far, we are currently looking to expand our efforts and take our show on the road, bringing this unique experience to venues across the globe.
If you are an event, venue, or convention owner who is looking to provide an out of this world experience for your customers, we urge you to check out our Coverage & Testimonials page to see the buzz that our previous Starfleet USO Shows have received, and consider booking us through the Request An Appearance page!
