Agreed. The Reliant XL is particularly beautiful and well-made.
A nice fan render of STO's Parliament model
Damn that’s a pretty ship. Cannot wait to get the Eaglemoss model for it.
Probably see it next year, based on the subscription delays.
Those windows on the floors and ceilings of the flat saucer . . .
Yeah it does seem to be horribly over-windowed. They also have them covering the warp engine pylons where only the intermix tube and other utility conduits should go, yet they make that whole surface look like it’s habitable.
To be fair the original Enterprise also had windows on its warp nacelle pylons.
I would hope you could breath while in those conduits.
Very true. Forgot about those.
I would think so. There would be no reason, otherwise, to have windows there if they weren't meant for humanoid consumption.
I've been around 30 years a fan and never saw the problem with window size/placement on Star Trek ships, but once the issue is seen it simply cannot be unseen. Damn logic and reason spoiling cool things again.
One day... one day I will own one Eaglemoss ship for my desk at work. It's just deciding which one.
I would recommend the XL Reliant. It’s probably one of the best they ever made, IMO.
I have the J. There are some surprising things about that ship, well, at least one, you can only perceive, well, I only perceived it, in a 3D model.
The name decal on the dorsal saucer is hard to spot on the XL Reliant. I'd modify that before putting it on display.
Agreed. None of them are perfect (although the main-line Merchantman is also pretty close), but from a shape and coloring POV, and aside from the anemic name decal, the XL Reliant is close to the best as you can get.
nothing that's not also on the model...
Will we ever see the rooms (on the Cerritos as well!) with the windows on the floor? The E-D had them very slanted so they were just about believable as windows, but these are floor and skylights.
Might make a nice sight gag.
yeah, what a huge spoiler
Wow. Now I hate it more.
Separate names with a comma.
