Star Trek Comes Home
Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum have been making electronic Star Trek ships since 2001, when the Asylum first made toys for the TV show Enterprise, including an electronic NX-01. Since then, the line has moved on to other Star Trek shows, including the Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation, and even feature films, and their miniature Starfleet now includes ten different models, all with built-in lights and sounds. After a long hiatus, the line has undergone a refit, and now DST's drydock is cranking new ships again!
One of the most fan-requested Star Trek ships, the Excelsior-class U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B starship is finally here! Based on the ship's sole appearance, in Star Trek: Generations, the Enterprise-B features authentic sounds and dialogue from the film, as well as light-up weapons and engines. The ship measures 16 inches long and comes with a Starfleet-insignia display stand.
The Klingon Bird of Prey, as seen in multiple feature films, is the first non-Enterprise ship in the line. The standard edition is based on the unnamed ship commanded by Admiral Chang in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and it features authentic sounds and dialogue from the film, as well as working lights. With its massive wingspan, the Bird of Prey measures 12.5 inches long by 19 inches wide, with the wings that move up for a landing approach or down for attack mode, and it comes with a Klingon symbol display stand. Be on the lookout for an exclusive Star Trek III edition!
The newest version of the Enterprise, the NCC-1701E, makes its triumphant return in an all-new paint scheme that more accurately reflects its appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis. DST also added lights to its warp nacelles! Packaged in a "Try Me" window box so customers can test its movie-accurate lights and sounds, the Enterprise "E" measures 19 4/5 inches long by 8 1/2 inches wide and comes with a display stand.
What's more, most of the older Star Trek ships have been put back into production, with many already available!
