The USS Thunderchild was one of the ships that fought the Borg in the Battle of Sector 001 in the movie Star Trek: First Contact. An Akira-class vessel, it is named after a warship in the H.G. Wells novel War of the Worlds. The USS Thunderchild made its debut appearance in Peter David's novel Before Dishonor.
The USS Thunderchild is part of the Starships Collection of Star Trek vehicles by Eaglemoss. This incredible collection includes all the most significant ships from the five Star Trek television series. Imported from the U.K. with limited distribution in the U.S., these ships are not easy to find for sale in the United States.
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 80 ships in total.
