Effective August 1, 2009, the USS Rebel Crusader left the International Federation Of Trekkers to become affiliated with the Pride Power Imperium. The USS Rebel Crusader was originally commissioned as the USS Confederacy on July 14, 1999 and recently celebrated its 10th Anniversary. The ship has been in the International Federation of Trekkers since it was originally commissioned.
Just prior to the USS Rebel Crusader leaving IFT for PPI, the following information about the ship was listed on the Home Page of its Yahoo Group:
The USS Rebel Crusader (NFC-9902) is a Star Trek/Sci-Fi/Action Hero fan ship associated with the International Federation of Trekkers. We hold meetings, sponsor events, go to sci-fi related movies, attend conventions, discuss our experiences, share sci-fi related information, share hard science news and most of all know how to have fun. Even though we are Star Trek fans, many of our ship members enjoy watching Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Battlestar Gallactica, Firefly and other sci-fi shows. Whatever your personal favorite genre is, you are welcome here.
