This ship has been painstakingly recreated in die-cast and plastic materials then hand painted with an incredible level of detail. The vehicle also comes with a full color collector magazine. Vehicle measures approximately 2-1/2 inches long x 2-1/4 inches wide x 3-3/4 inches tall (mounted on base).
The Orion scout ship was a type of scout ship utilized by the Orions during the mid-23rd century. Also known as an ‘intruder’ or ‘raider’ vessel, the Orion scout ship had a unique design, previously unknown to Starfleet, consisting of an oblong primary hull attached by a central "spine" to a large vertical ring, perpendicular to the primary hull, which contained the ship's propulsion system. The propulsion system itself consisted of two four-spoke components, each containing four propulsion units. These two components spun independently of each other while the ship was in flight. This warp mechanism generated enormous power and propelled the ship to incredible speeds.
The scout ship's hull was composed of high density trititanium, allowing the vessel to be "cloaked" against Federation sensor probes. This technology was unlike the cloaking device used by the Romulans.
While moderately armed with standard phasers, the scout ship was capable of evading both phaser and photon torpedo fire, due to its incredible speed; indeed, capable of traveling at warp 10 in combat.
The fully illustrated magazine includes details on the Orion Scout Ship's design and specifications as well as going behind the scenes of the iconic episode 'Journey to Babel', plus much more!
The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 130 ships in total.
