This ship is not available until April 2014, but already we have an advance look at this model.
As you can see the design is a departure from most other Federation vessels, which is no surprise if you see the ship’s mysterious history.
It looks as if the hull will be metal and likely the nacelles are plastic. I expect this make the model feel heavier than other Federation ships which will generally have plastic engineering hulls. I’m looking forward to this model as seems to have similar attention to detail as the Enterprise D. The hull has aztecing, view ports, escape pods and, though I’m not entirely sure, translucent blue nacelle vents.
