Never a more decorated vessel in Starfleet’s history…and now just in time for its 50th Anniversary, the “USS Enterprise” comes home.
Perhaps it couldn’t be anymore appropriate that this week’s shipment from Eaglemoss Collections of Star Trek The Official Starships Collection featured the one that started it all. Issue 50 in the line of vessels from the longline of spacefaring ships to map out Federation space and beyond, is none other than the one that started it all: U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.
Beautifully die cast an measuring approximately 5 inches in length, Captain Kirk’s fabled Constitution class ship has been expertly reproduced; all her delicate lines captured in great detail. Considering the size of the model, the weigh it significantly ideal and hefty along the saucer section of the ship, which holds the nerve-center of the ship.
The nacelles and lower engineering hull appear to be in perfect proportions to the original designs inspired by the tv ship’s designer Matt Jeffries. This model of the Enterprise also matches many of the details that were introduced when the ship was upgraded for the high-resolution BLu-ray release of Star Trek: The Original Series Remastered.
Of all the ships that have been released by Eaglemoss and carry the name Enterprise (including the larger scale “special issue” from the reboot) this is by far one of the best models, and is sure to please any starship collector. It wouldn’t be a fleet without one of the Federation’s finest! The model also comes with a 20-page magazine with background info.
