I don't know much about Kre-o although I've seen the Star Trek line at the local Toys R Us. I've never used them so I can't say how the quality is, but the bottom line is I really wish we could get some Star Trek Lego's! I'd love to get a Lego Enterprise or maybe a bridge set or something.
Friends who've bought the "Star Trek" Kre-o models have been quite impressed. Unfortunately Kre-o is a wannabe rival of Lego - and Lego wasn't interested in getting a Trek license.

According to Wikipedia, Kre-o is compatible with Lego bricks, Mega Bloks and other building block brands.

Surely it's also possible to build your own Lego Enterprise?

(Yeah, it thought so! http://www.happywaffle.com/enterprise/ )

When I was a kid, I'm sure Lego came in boxes with a whole booklet of different plans. My neighbour built houses, rockets, trains, planes and automobiles from the one set. This concept of an expensive licensed kit - that can seemingly only be assembled into one configuration, like a 3D jigsaw puzzle - has been a more recent phenomenon?
