BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
No matter how many models you may own of the U.S.S. Enterprise, from whatever incarnation of the enduring franchise, they don’t hold a candle — or a phaser! — to this screen-accurate replica of the vessel from the 2009 Star Trek film.
Of course, none of those models likely costs $6,995, either.
Measuring 34 inches long by 15.7 inches wide by 7 inches tall, this “Artisan Replica” from Quantum Mechanics was crafted using master components supplied to the company by Industrial Light & Magic. “The sculpture consists of thousands of details, many of which are only barely glimpsed on screen,” the website states. “You could spend hours studying this replica and still find new surprises around the next curve.”
The photos give you at least some idea of the beautiful details. The are also customizable features, such shuttle doors shown either open or closed, battle damage and an engraved base. Hey, for about seven grand, you’re allowed to call some of the shots.
