Re: The 11-foot TOS Enterprise model-
I suppose if we really wanted to stir up trouble,we'd have the 11'2" mounted in a half-shell cutaway of one of Franz Joseph's big dock spheres from the STARFLEET TECHNICAL MANUAL.
All I ask is a tall ship and some stars to steer her by. The ship would look best against a background of planets and/or our galaxy (and not against some merchandise shelves).
