    I was annoyed the Excelsiors turned up in the main series of ships, yet the voyager did not, if I am honest. Same with the shuttles in the UK version.

    True. I remember the only model kit that inexplicably came out for Nemesis was the Scorpion fighter. No Scimitar, no redesigned E-E. I remember that being quite the noodle-scratcher of a decision back in the day.

    I think one of AA/DSTs Es was a NEM version

    That construction timelapse scene must've used very detailed 3D models... crazy to just delete them :scream:

    Well there is Alexander Klemm's (nightfever) almost completely accurate model, they could have used that...

    Yeah, I’m not sure I buy some of the rationales being issued as to which ships EM made / or not made… and had an Beyond Enterprise 1701-A, I would have been all over it from the outset!

    Heh, I bought all the Excelsior prototypes, but wasn't interested in the Voyager or Ambassador!

    My favourite starship design ever. I bought several of them! If only there'd been an XL version...

    Agreed. If an XL Probert Ambassador it had happened, one would hope they'd have fixed the missing window decals on the forward part of the secondary hull. The small model was very well done, but that little omission really kind of stuck out.

    Going non-canon, as per Star Trek: Trexels the first batch of Ambassador-class ships looked like the concept, including the Enterprise-C.
    I’d like to think this is what the C looked like upon launch in 2332. Within the first two years or so, the ships of the class were refitted to series configuration,

    Similarly, perhaps there was a Bradbury-class USS Voyager NCC-73606, launched in 2368 and decommissioned in 2370 when the class underperformed. The name Voyager was then assigned to an Intrepid-class ship under construction.

    I know that that that's the obvious rationale for how the concept Ambassador could be a "real" ship, but given how much sleeker it is, my imagination is that the Probert version is a TNG-era upgrade and the Sternbach version was what was initially built. When the New Frontier novels first came out and described the Excalibur as a refitted Ambassador-class, what I imagined was pretty much the Probert design that was eventually realized.

    Thanks for sharing that! I see there's a color-blueprint cross section of the Council class that can be requested by email.

    That’s ridiculous. :mad:

    Sadly, there are probably several people with more money than good sense that stand a chance of panic-buying them.

    Someone grossed $400 US this week on eBay for their Cerritos. Ferengi Rule of Acquisition #503: "A trolling pauper gathers no Eaglemoss."

    Jeff Robb was the best.

    I also have memories of the GTC model company…Star Tech? Not so much…an 80 dollar money order gone and no merch…Anovos in miniature

    I finally found some of the "Build the Enterprise D" shuttles on ebay.de. They're pretty huge, and I like the updated paint scheme/weathering on the Type 6.
