    Huh. When Eaglemoss sent me three different emails back-to-back, I assumed they would all be sent in one efficient package.

    Nope. Shran yesterday, Sirena should show up today and... the USPS has no idea where Zheng He is.

    Are the CG models from Beyond lost as well?

    That I do not know.

    However, Beyond was the first Trek production where Eaglemoss was involved before it came out. Ben Robinson had seen some production art on the Franklin before it appeared on screen.

    I hope these are still happening.

    That would be amazingly awesome (if confirmed)! Been looking forward to these ever since the line started.

    I finally located the bag in the closet that my JL and Furuta ships were so unceremoniously dumped in when I moved. Not sure what I'll do with then, given my limited space, most of which is taken up by Eaglemoss model, but nice to see them again.

    For the record, I pulled out the refit and compared it to the Eaglemoss 1701-A (both have a white color sceme, as opposed to the more gray scheme of the Eaglemoss refit). Aside from being 5-10% smaller scale, it seems to me they're pretty much the same in terms of proportions. The secondary hull doesn't seem "fat" me.

    They also did a swell job on the NX-01 (I have three, the original, the "battle damaged one", and the mirror universe one).

    I've seen this info on memory alpha for quite some time now but I don't remember exactly where it came from. I think it was in an interview, maybe with IrishTrekkie? Shame about Salcombe though.

    That tiny ship at Starbase One in ST'09 is the USS Realta NCC-0184, seen up close in the Fleet Command mobile game.

    It blows my mind they had some USS Vengeance design cues in a background ship 4 years before.

    Would that be the one that Bernd Schneider marked with a "?" on the picture of Spacedock 1 (see USS Armstrong)?

    And presumably Unnamed Type IV is the Turas-class?

    My ST Universe sub is finally pending to my credit card in the US.

    Next special issue is the Son'a battlecruiser :adore:
    Now the only Son'a ship that's still missing is the shuttle.

    Huh... Looks almost like a Disco-era ship, with the hard-angle nacelles. Interesting design. I hope we see more angles of it at some point.

    It doesn't look quite right to be the Steamrunner-ish Turas class to me. Perhaps a variant without the saucer.

    Now that you mention the Steamrunner connection, we can mentally retcon the Turas into the welcoming fleet when NX-01 returned to Earth in 2154.

    Anyone have an idea how long the Canadian site's been down?

    Also, 315 meters? What are they smoking?

    The Mayflower dwarfs the 725m Enterprise in the movie, so 236m is entirely wrong there too. There's a size comparison chart in the Art of the Movie book, for crying out loud!

    EDIT: They got their sizes from Ex Astris Scientia's "estimations":rolleyes:

    Yay! It's my favorite of the background ships from Star Trek (2009)! This might be on of the last ships I need to get from Eaglemoss. Still waiting for the Defiant prototype. And if they ever re-do some of the misses like the Stargazer I will definitely get them.

    I'd say the Mayflower saucer scene is a bit of...VFX funny scaling. But I'd say the saucers are roughly the same diameter as Enterprise's.
    Oh no :cardie:
    It was so sad when Bernd had such a meltdown about the new timeline and its ships. Building ships smaller and larger depending on Starfleet's technology and resources should not be such big matter (no pun intended).

    True. It's doubly frustrating that he accepts Discovery's ship sizes (750m USS Discovery! 440m Enterprise!) without too much complaint, but still insists the Kelvin Enterprise isn't 725m. Sigh.
