They Boldly Went Where No Woman Had Gone Before. Eaglemoss Celebrates the First Women in Space!

One was a Soviet cosmonaut, selected from among more than 400 applicants to soar into space on the Vostok 6 mission on June 16, 1963. Twenty years and two days later – on June 18, 1983 – an American astronaut rose to similar heights of fame aboard the space shuttle Challenger. They were, respectively, Valentina Tereshkova and Sally Ride. The course they charted for women — in their own countries and around the world — continues to resonate throughout the cosmos.

Eaglemoss Collections, creators of Star Trek themed collectibles produced under license from CBS Studios, is proud to salute these true pioneers on the 55th and 35th anniversaries of their respective historic launches into space with special 15% savings on stunningly detailed, die-cast models available online at the Eaglemoss Shop.

Here are five of the most significant Federation starships that, according to Star Trek canon, flew under the leadership of female Starfleet captains and commanders.

Eaglemoss Offers a 9-Ship Salute to the 25th Anniversary of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

It’s been a quarter century since the debut of the first Star Trek series not set on board a ship called Enterprise and Eaglemoss Collections is giving fans an opportunity to celebrate. Here are nine classic starships that put into port across seven seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Each is available to own as an incredibly detailed die-cast replica, official authorized by CBS Studios, and at special 25th anniversary savings – either as part of a subscription to the Official Star Trek Starships Collection or as individual purchases from the Eaglemoss Shop or favorite comic shop.

1: Danube Class Runabout

A vital part of operations for the Deep Space Nine crew, able to serve on a variety of different mission types. The ships in this class were named for famous rivers on Earth, including the U.S.S. Rio Grande, the U.S.S. Yangtzee and the U.S.S. Orinoco.

2: Bajoran Solar-Sail Vessel

A relic from the distant past of Bajoran space exploration. Legend had it that it made it all the way to Cardassia itself almost 800 years prior. Benjamin Sisko recreated this ship from ancient plans to see if the legend was true.

3: Cardassian Galor Class

The most-common warships in the Cardassian fleet, they featured heavily in DS9 during the Dominion War. Fighting alongside Dominion ships, they inflicted heavy damage to the combined Federation and Klingon fleets.

4: Akira Class

Built for action, it played a major role in winning back Deep Space Nine for the Federation. Designed to confront threats encroaching on Starfleet’s borders in space, the ship’s layout presented a narrow target, and its saucer section functioned not unlike an aircraft carrier.

5: U.S.S. Defiant

Originally built to defend against a Borg invasion, this relatively small class prototype was the Federation’s very first true warship.  At just 4 decks and a crew of about 40, it nevertheless proved itself as one of the most-powerful and consistent players in the Dominion War’s hard-fought battles.

6: Jem’Hadar Fighter

Commonly used by the Dominion at the front lines of battle, this beetle-shaped attack ship was typically deployed in groups of three. Late in the Dominion War, it was outfitted with an energy-dampening weapon that proved devastating to Federation forces and their allies until countermeasures were eventually developed.

7: Bajoran Raider

Made from spare parts and whatever Bajoran Resistance engineers could scrounge together, this ship was a true underdog, not even capable of impulse speeds in space, let alone warp. But within a planet’s atmosphere, this strike fighter bared its teeth, often attacking in groups, and proving itself faster and more maneuverable than ships that otherwise outclassed it.

8: Romulan Shuttle

In many ways a comparable ship class to the Federation Danube Class Runabout, but with a very distinctive Romulan design and features. It also had a cloaking device that rendered the ship invisible to sensors as well as the naked eye.

9: Klingon Vor’cha Class

This battlecruiser featured heavily in all the defining battles of the Dominion War and was the flagship of choice for General Martok, as well as Chancellors Gowron and K’mpec. Instantly recognizable as a Klingon vessel, years of peace and sharing of technology with the Federation influenced aspects of its design.

The ships of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine forever changed the landscape of Star Trek lore. To commemorate this critically important turning point in Star Trek history, Eaglemoss Collections is making some history of its own. New subscribers to the Official Star Trek Starships Collection will not only get their first ship  – TNG’s U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D – for only $4.95, but also receive the U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205 for half price – both with free shipping (use the code DS9 at checkout) Plus, every subscription includes a selection of free gifts valued at over $90 and additional savings of up to 20% off each ship in the collection.

Non-subscribers can drop by the Eaglemoss Shop to enjoy 10% off the purchase of any or all DS9 ships, including our Deep Space Nine 25th Anniversary Bundle, which includes a special edition Deep Space Nine space station and two ships from Season 2. Or look for them at your local comic shop.
