    Maybe.

    “Asshats” - Section 31? I think I’m not getting the joke.

    Huh... Never gave Mudd’s ship that much of a close look. How many nacelles does that thing have? Looks like 7 or 8.

    Mudd's ship doesn't even appear to be full 3D, a lot of it looks like they pasted renders of other parts ontop of it.

    It’s so damn dark (like all of Disco’s VFX), it’s difficult to make out details. Probably intentional. Probably for the best - particularly that one.

    I’ll give them credit, though, for building something in the same spirit as the SS Aurora - using the main body of an alien ship and slapping Fed warp engines on it to make it a whole new class of civilian vessel. :lol:

    Just when I thought they got all the Miranda types, they figure out how to do another one! :lol: The Reliant-prime looks really good. Looking forward to adding that one to the collection.

    The Cardassian weapon platform actually looks pretty good. Wasn't expecting to like the look of it but... :bolian:

    It does look interesting, but I really wish we had more angles. I'm assuming it might have the twinned torpedo launchers that were part of the concept sketch, before the rollbar was designed.

    I'm thinking the same. You can sort of see part of the one port-side pod in that picture so, yes, no rollbar, as it should be. :)

    I love anything connected to the Dominion War, so I'm REALLY excited for this!

    Yes, I believe the roll bar was added AFTER the "flip" to give it more of a visual balance.

    I got the Discoprise (#12) today. It’s a nice model but it does looks like it’s been squished. Still prefer the proper model.
    I was reading the New Frontier comic and the Parodox and Specter could make good models. Especially the latter as I’ve always been a fan of Romulan ships and there are a very few of them in the canon.

    I never found anything relevant for me on black fridays or cyber mondays, but now I got 2 ships for 32 instead of 50! My first cyber monday deal XD
    They didn't have the smuggler's ship or the OV-165 in my hometown back then, but now I'm getting them :D
