Starship Enterprise Submarine: Its Dive-Year Mission

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 31, 2010

It’s funny, I always thought when they named it the Starship Enterprise, they were talking about the type of ship that could fly through outer space. But apparently, the ship part was referring to a water-bound vessel. At least that’s what I learned when I stumbled onto this remote-controlled Enterprise that can dive beneath the water.


Created by Japan’s Yokosuka Dry Docks, this Starship Enterprise model is water-tight, and can zip around underwater without flooding the bridge or shorting out its nacelles. Check out the video below to see it in action…

“Photon torpedoes approaching from port side! Dive, Captain Kirk, Dive!” That’s what I imagine the tiny little crew of Sea Monkeys is saying on board at this very moment.

Be sure to head over to YDD’s YouTube page to see more of their underwater spaceship creations, including the Millenium Falcon, USS Voyager and highly appropriate Battleship Yamato.
