Worf: Captain. There is an anomaly dead ahead. Too late! We have entered a galaxy far, far away. So far away I’m not getting any accurate readings. Oh, and we are also now in a time period that the computer will only say is a “long time ago”.
Watching this video of this guy making his own model of the Starship Enterprise D – then making it fly – is truly inspirational. It is a fully functional R/C model. It’s even illuminated by super bright LEDs and fiber optics.
Captains log: “I’m currently in sick bay with another nasty paper cut. Bones says I’ll live, but… I… have… my… doubts…” If you’re a Star Trek fan who’s into papercraft, you will definitely want the new DIY Paper USS Enterprise 1701 over at ThinkGeek.
With the upcoming Star Trek: Into Darkness ready to storm into theaters this May, we’re getting ready for whatever sort of merchandising may come along with the flick. One of the first items to pop onto our radar screen is this awesome looking model of the Starship Enterprise.
If you are looking for a scale replica of the Starship Enterprise, why not go straight to one just like the Enterprise D studio miniature that was used in The Next Generation series. This 1:850 scale measures 29.5″ long x 22″ wide x 6″ high – or 11″ high when mounted on its base.
Sure you can always buy an expensive replica of the Enterprise or a cheap toy to hang from your ceiling and that’s cool, but this Star Trek mobile classes things up a bit. It’s the Enterprise and it is also a work of art at the same time.
It’s no secret that the Space Shuttle fleet has been retired and is no longer carrying astronauts and cargo into space. The Shuttles will spend the remainder of their days on display for fans of spaceflight to look at.
Trekkies, have I got something for you. If you’re thinking about redecorating your living room in a Star Trek motif, you’re going to want to seriously think about incorporating this bit of furniture into your game plan.
This may be the coolest mailbox ever. Too bad it can’t just phaser your junk mail before it enters the shuttlecraft docking bay. Also too bad it can’t use a tractor beam to get the mail from the box to your door.
A dude going by the name Legoloverman has crafted these sweet LEGO Star Trek TNG spaceships that show one of the coolest battles that the Enterprise had with the Borg. The Borg Cube and the Enterprise were both made entirely out of LEGO bricks.
I bet the Star Wars movies would have been much shorter if this was Han Solo’s ship:
But in terms of appearance, I think the whole is less than the sum of its parts. You can get the Millenterprise Falcon t-shirt at Redbubble for $24 (USD).
