After first announcing their forthcoming Star Trek: Discovery special line of starship models back in September, Eaglemoss has now officially revealed the first twelve ships to be part of the larger-scale line.

We’ve known of course, that the Walker-class Shenzhou and Crossfield-class Discovery would be included since the program was announced, and even checked out the prototype designs of each ship at New York Comic Con in October. In November, StarTrek.com revealed some more details on the ships at the Battle of the Binary Stars, and now the full first wave of models has been detailed.

The collection includes seven ships from the Federation Starfleet:

Images of the first two releases’ magazine covers and models are already detailed on the Eaglemoss UK site, with the Shenzhou arriving as Issue #1:

In addition to the seven Federation ships, there are also five Klingon vessels set to join the first Discovery Official Starships Collection as well, including the new Klingon Bird-of-Prey design (which will be Issue #4) and Qugh-class destroyers, seen as part of the Binary Stars battle fleet:

Surprisingly, T’Kuvma’s “Ship of the Dead” — also known as the Klingon Sarcophagus ship — is not part of this series; like the Narada from Star Trek ’09, its intricate design may be difficult to accurately reproduce using the current Eaglemoss production methods.

As Eaglemoss’ Ben Robinson put it, the Sarcophagus ship is “insanely more detailed” than seen on television:

Each ship will be available for individual purchase — the Discovery and Shenzhou can each be preordered now (US or UK) — or for those interested, the Discovery Official Starships Collection is also available as a subscription program to collect all the releases.

Watch for our review of these ships as they arrive throughout 2018!

  • prometheus59650

    I really like that Yeager Class.

  • Mike Walker

    If they want £35 each for these then please can they get the windows aligned!

    • James

      Absolutely. If they can fix this issue then they’ve got my money. If not, then I will pass.

    • Tuskin38

      They fixed the Shenzhou’s windows from the prototype.

    • Nowhereman10

      I always buy them in stores or at conventions where I can personally inspect the model before I buy it. So far I’ve avoided the window alignment issue.

      • mr joyce

        good idea

    • Friska

      Let’s stop by to see Mayhem and copy here web site >>> CINEMAFOX3D.BLOGSPOT.COM

  • Tuskin38

    So the Walker class is 423 meters long and the Crossfield is 750.5

    That makes the inner saucer of the Discovery about the same size as the TOS Connie’s.

    • Perplexum

      They continue the annoying trend from the Abrams movies Everything has to be bigger than the original Enterprise/Constitution class, which was supposed to be the state of the art flagship of her time.

      • Thomas Elkins

        I’m not sure size matters. Some Vulcan cruisers from the 22nd Century were this big, but I’m sure the 1701 is still far more impressive.

      • The Science Fiction Oracle

        I am glad they are updating the sizes. In retrospect, the original Connie is too small. Today’s Airbus A-380 is passenger jet is arguably bigger for heaven’s sake.

        • Perplexum

          Not sure why you see it that way, but even so, the Discovery is now the largest Starfleet ship (minus the Enterprise-J from the far future and the ridiculous bad guy’s ship from Into Darkness). That’s a bit exsessive, even if most of it is due to those chopstick-like warp engines.

          • The Science Fiction Oracle

            Obviously it’s not the most massive starship. Just focusing on length, as you started to suggest, is misleading

          • Perplexum

            Misleading how? I never said it had the biggest volume or something like that. She probably would still dwarf most other ships either way, though.

          • The Science Fiction Oracle

            “even if most of it is due to those chopstick-like warp engines”

            As you said? I am attempting to agree with you?

          • Perplexum

            Ah, then I just missunderstood, never mind. 😉

          • Nowhereman10

            This ship is not that big. Not even close. The E-J is two miles (3.2 km) long. The Shenzou is clearly not 420 m long and there is no way based on the bridge window screen and everything else that the Discovery/Crossfield is 750 m. If the saucer is the same size as the TOS Enterprise’s, that ship’s max length is around 350-400m. That’s just a basic measurement from the plan view of the model there.

          • RMS_Titanic

            I make it around 350-378 meters. A good part of that being the length of the nacelles, which if you remove that and make it more in the same proportions as the Constitution or Miranda class nacelles, it is actually quite a smallish ship.

          • The Science Fiction Oracle

            Yep!

          • RMS_Titanic

            If you set the nacelles a bit forward and take about half the length off, like the original version of the ship had, it would be <300 meters.

          • The Science Fiction Oracle

            Agreed. I remember some calculations back in August that roughly suggested although it was longer than the Connie, is was likely only about 2/3 as massive.

          • RMS_Titanic

            The saucer of the Constitution is big and the engineering hull is small while on the Crossfield, it is the other way around, the saucer is small and the stardrive hull is big.

          • The Science Fiction Oracle

            Agreed. Yes, I agree with you on something. 🙂

          • Perplexum

            That’s how I imagined it to be too. just a bit lengthier than the Enterprise due to the elongated warp nacelles. But it doesn’t count for much, when we have an official source that says otherwise (probably approved by CBS).

          • Nowhereman10

            Perhaps, but the visuals right now don’t support it. Backstage info is useful and interesting, but not canon.

            In an example from a prior Star Trek series, in this case Deep Space Nine, there were big problems with the size of the titular space station’s size (1 km or 1.6 km?) and then most especially with that of the U.S.S. Defiant, which ranged all over the place from 65 meters to a whopping 167 meters because the visuals were all over the place.

            Even in TOS when everything was being worked out, the Enterprise went from a mere 200 feet (64 meters) initially to around 500-600 feet (as of “The Cage”) and then later still it was retconned up to 947 feet (289 m). However, a number of sci-fi modelers have noted that using the windows and interior sets as a guideline, the original Enterprise actually would logically be a bit larger than that. About around 320 meters.

            So your mileage will vary and ultimately you have to decide if the backstage info is right or if what you see is correct.

      • Tuskin38

        It was never stated in any TOS episode or movie that the Enterprise was the flagship of the fleet. That is an urban myth.

        IIRC the only Enterprises to be called that was the Ent-E and the Kelvin Timeline Enterprise.

        Also bigger doesn’t always mean better. Discovery was built primarily as a science ship, while the Enterprise is a type of Cruiser.

        The Enterprise probably has more firepower then the discovery.

        • RMS_Titanic

          Also, by this time, the Constitution-class is at least 11 years old. It might be “state of the art”, but it is not cutting edge. An Enterprise being the stated anything like a flagship for the Federation comes only in the Next Generation era.

          • Tuskin38

            She supposedly had a fast warp drive though, the original captain of the Excelsior said he was looking forward to breaking her speed records.

            But she could have been upgraded between The Cage and TOS Season 1. Or Scotty’s personal modifications.

          • RMS_Titanic

            Well, when you are going to hit warp 14.1 just one second before blowing up, I can imagine that record would stand for a while.

        • Shadowknight1

          The Enterprise-D was the Federation flagship.

  • Grant Kerr

    Interesting that they haven’t a Klingon class name for those Birds of Prey. Did the other Klingon names come from the broadcasts?

    • Tuskin38

      I don’t think any of the Klingon ships were given names in any episode.

      • RMS_Titanic

        It is a tradition to give the class names from behind the scenes rather than on-screen.

  • Thomas Elkins

    There is no “D7” Battlecruiser. Hopefully they come up with a better name for it.

    • RMS_Titanic

      It clearly was a production mistake as Saru calls it a “bird of prey” and the Qugh-class destroyer looks a lot like it in many respects. But it is not the first time a mistake like this has been made since we see as far back as TOS a Tholian ship with warp nacelles slapped on to represent a Federation ship in “The Way to Eden” and later in Enterprise due to time constraints the K’Tinga CGI model was used instead of the D-4 model that was being made for an episode.

      • Thomas Elkins

        That whole episode was a production mistake. They call that ship about three different classes. It will most likely have a different name whenever they get to it.

        • Captain Lorca, Section 31

          The whole series is a production mistake and needs to be ended

          • Tuskin38

            If you hate it so much why is your display name Captain Lorca?

          • mr joyce

            he hate watched lol

          • The Science Fiction Oracle

            He pretended at first that he liked it. He’s on his 9th life here — the nonsense continues….

    • RMS_Titanic

      I actually like the Veqlargh-class as with some modest modification it would be a great homage to the original Klingon designs while still updating it.

  • DC Forever

    They had me at “hello!” Awesome! I am ordering the DSC today,

    So glad I didn’t spend my budget on the NX-01, as the DSC is a legitimate modern take on what Rodenberry and the broader Star Trek braintrust of the 60’s and 70’s intended with starship design philosophy. The DSC design respects Star Trek’s starship design origins, which is refreshing to see given the design failures that we saw in the latter Berman era.

    • Captain Lorca, Section 31

      Show won’t make it to season 3.

      • James

        I’ll wager 1000 quatloos that it does. Big number of sign-ups for CBSAA and Netflix funding.

      • SpaceCadet

        Very premature to say 3/5 of the way through the first season with a second season’s worth of episodes yet to come. And the show is much too important to the growth of CBSAA to cancel so soon.

      • Tuskin38

        Well you won’t at least.

        • DC Forever

          Yes he will, but he wil be using his 67th ID by then. Lol

      • Synaesthesiaa

        “HURR DURR”

        • DC Forever

          “Here’s the door” 🙂

          (GoT reference)

      • TG1701

        I’m pretty sure it will make it to season 3 at least. I don’t think it will last as long as TNG, DS9 or Voyager though. I don’t think the show is that popular right now since its on All Access and I don’t know anyone who watches it personally like those others. But its probably doing well enough for All Access and frankly what else do they have on that site to watch? And since its on Netflix worldwide if enough people are watching it outside of America then CBS might keep it on longer if Netflix really wants to keep it going.

  • Fiery Little One

    Discovery is on my personal list. But I’ll wait until I see it in person before I decide.

  • Du H

    the bridge of the Europa is located between the top two nacelle?

    • sw gs

      Yup

  • Tuskin38

    I googled the Klingon ship names:

    There was a Klingon named ‘Qugh’ in the novel ‘Klingon’ according to Memory-Beta, can’t find anything else.

    DaSpu’ – Means Boot Spike, comes from a Marc Okrand book.

    veqlargh is the Klingon spelling of “Fek’lhr”

    I can’t find anything for ‘Bstlh’

  • Aaron

    Well it’s nice to actually see what the various ships (especially the Klingon ships) actually look like. The space VFx of Discovery make it too damn hard to make out what anything looks like.

    • Dumi

    • Quonk

      True. If you ask me, those models (with the possible exception of the BoP) are in dire need of a redesign or – even better – the re-introduction of more familiar shapes.
      For all their over-detailing they’re looking far too indistinct and – that’s something that occurred to me only now – they all appear to lack a true third dimension!They basically look like overly detailed top-down concept drawings blown up to 3D.
      I guess that’s one of the pitfalls when you have a technology, which makes it unnecessary to account for problems like blue-spill, details getting lost under studio-lighting, lines not coming out clearly enough after compositing, physical stability of the model – in short: all the problems associated with (physical) model-photography.
      With John Eaves at the helm they might have a capable concept designer at hand (even though opinions are split on that as well; I for one find his designs rather uninspired), but they lack the eye of people like Andrew Probert, Greg Jein, Rick Sternbach or Doug Drexler, who shaped the look and feel of post-TOS Trek and who had a lot of experience regarding model-building, matte-painting etc. – all those aspects which ultimately had to stand the test of the camera-eye.

  • Sweet, I love em. It was nice to get a better look at them

  • TG1701

    This ship is still ugly as hell but it doesn’t look as bad as a model. Its just too weird looking for me. I wish the Shenzhou was the official ship of the show.

    • SpaceCadet

      I agree with you in favoring the Shenzhou and that the Discovery is weird-looking but I do appreciate the boldness of the series in making such a unique looking ship as the primary “face” of the show.

      • TG1701

        I will agree with that. I do remember how ugly I thought DS9 was too when that show first came on. I didn’t understand why not at least put it on a stafleet base where it would look cool and sleek but then that was the point and why DS9 was such a bold show. Hopefully in time I will get use to this ship if I keep watching the show.

  • Captain Lorca, Section 31

    These alternate universe JJ Trek ships look terrible

    • The Science Fiction Oracle

      You are once again confused. Pay attention.

    • Tuskin38

      But they’re not from that universe.

      • DC Forever

        He’s trolling

  • pittrek

    Wait – so these will NOT be part of the “standard” Eaglemoss line, but a brand new line?

    • Correct, as they are part of a separate license and the models are larger than the standard ship releases.

      • pittrek

        Makes sense. Thanks

  • The USS Edison looks like the Millennium Falcon in Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story.
