Star Trek Model Collection: Akira Class

Even obscure Starfleet vessels will be making an appearance. Here’s some photos from Eaglemoss of a forthcoming model, the USS Thunderchild. It made a brief appearance in ST: First Contact during the Battle of Sector 001.

The quality looks comparable to the Enterprise D, so I’m looking forward to this model. We should expect to see the Thunderchild around February 2014 as issue 12.

One thought on “Star Trek Model Collection: Akira Class

  1. One of my favourite designs. Back in 90’s I was part of an online role-playing group and I “commanded” one of these so it has a special place in my fandom heart. While the official ship design seemed to shy away from the original “aircraft carrier” concept from some of the original sketches, I personally liked this idea and think the raised pod acting like a control tower for shuttles coming in to land from behind and between the nacelles into the main body was a neat little design choice. I was really keen to get my hands on this when I first heard they were doing this series and this model did not disappoint.
