Debuting in the background set of tonight’s post-finale edition of After Trek, ANOVOS just beamed out a transmission over subspace to announce new “Studio-Scale” electronic starship models of the USS Discovery and USS Shenzhou, measuring 2-3 feet long… and starting at $8,000.

Star Trek™ created a generation of fans by inspiring their imagination for technology’s future. From the Original Series to Discovery, the starships and their tech have been just as pivotal to the story as each series’ memorable characters were. Their stories were told not only through the interactions of their crews, but also told through the ultimate success (or demise) of the ships themselves as they navigated the final frontiers depicted in each episode.

Charting new frontiers, ANOVOS is excited to present a new line of collectible studio-scale filming models whose aim is to tell the story of these starships in never-before seen detail—not only from without, but from within.

In keeping with the early days of Star Trek collecting, where technical manuals and books have always been part of the ship’s narrative, advancements in 3D design and printing have allowed us to bring these technical drawings to life, by engineering the fully dimensional ships from inside-out.

Using digital assets for the Discovery provided directly by CBS from the show’s production team, our core engineers took these ships’ specifically-focused areas of interest and engineered the internal architecture, which were then given life via 3D printing and integrated with lights.

The final effect is a deeper look into not only these beautifully hand-painted ship, but also an interactive experience with the ability to lift portions of the hull plating to reveal the ship’s working warp coils, crew’s quarters, and shuttlebay.

The Shenzhou clocks in at a length of 26″ long, and here’s a breakdown of the full specs:

  • Measures 26.6″ x 16.4″ x 4.6″.
  • Body composed of polymer resin, with steel reinforcement.
  • Replicated directly from the screen-used digital assets from production.
  • Over 160 LED lights, runs off a 12V power source, with single channel remote.
  • Active illumination for Impulse Engines, Warp Nacelles, Formation, Deflector Dish and Anti-Collision lights.
  • Our system uses a series of Neodymium magnets in both the pylons and nacelles to secure the nacelles. All electronics are handled with pin connections. This allows the nacelles to removed and attached at will.
  • Detail areas:
    • Removable panels, exposing engineering elements.
    • Exposed Shuttle Bay complete with Shuttlecraft and interior illumination.

The Discovery is over three feet in length, thanks to its long warp nacelles:

  • Measures 36.9″ x 15.2″ x3.6″.
  • Body composed of polymer resin, with steel reinforcement.
  • Replicated directly from the screen-used digital assets from production.
  • Over 180 LED lights, runs off a 12V power source, with single channel remote.
  • Active illumination for Impulse Engines, Warp Nacelles, Formation, and Anti-Collision lights.
  • Our system uses a series of Neodymium magnets in both the pylons and nacelles to secure the nacelles. All electronics are handled with pin connections. This allows the nacelles to removed and attached at will.
  • Detail areas:
    • Removable panels, exposing engineering elements and crew quarters.
    • Exposed Shuttle Bay complete with Shuttlecraft and interior illumination.

While both ships are build to order, you’ll need to find all the Federation credits you can gt your hands on to add these starships to your fleet: the Shenzhou model is listed at an $8,000 cost, and the Discovery starship has a $9,000 price tag.

If you’re that adventurous, you can head over to the ANOVOS website to order.
