Eaglemoss Collections Gives a First Look at the Ships of Star Trek: Discovery

Hot on the heels of the return of the hit series Star Trek: Discovery to CBS All Access, Eaglemoss Collections is proud to offer fans a chance to check out the all-new ship designs joining the U.S.S. Shenzhou NCC-1227 and U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 in the Official Star Trek: Discovery Starships Collection.

Currently on display, renderings of the 12 ships that make up the first wave of models in the collection are each based on the original VFX models created for the show. They include 7 Federation ships (including the U.S.S. Kerala NCC-1255, U.S.S. Yeager NCC-1437 and U.S.S. Europa NCC-1648) and 5 Klingon vessels (including the reimagined Klingon Bird-of-Prey and Qugh Class Destroyer).

These renderings serve as the basis for the creation of the die-cast models themselves, painstakingly reproduced under the supervision of Star Trek expert Ben Robinson and officially authorized by CBS Studios. Averaging 8” to 10” from bow to stern, each ship in this special collection is incredibly detailed, cast in a specially formulated metallic resin and hand painted for accuracy.

Each ship also comes with a display base, as well as an exclusive collector’s magazine featuring behind the scenes info, original design sketches and a breakdown of technology on board.

Fans who subscribe to the collection will receive their first ship – the U.S.S. Shenzhou NCC-1227 – for only $9.95 with FREE shipping. Additional models – including the iconic U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 – will then ship monthly for the special subscriber’s price of only $44.95 each (20% off the standard retail price), also with FREE shipping.

Subscribers are also entitled to free gifts worth over $100 and may cancel their subscriptions at any time. You can find out more online.
