Diamond Select Toys has announced it has two new Star Fleet ships ready to set sail over the next couple of months.
First up is a limited variation on the U.S.S. Enterprise E – the First Contact edition! With a new, detailed paint scheme based on Star Trek: First Contact, this new E is visually distinctive from the previous edition, which was based on its appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis. With the same great lights and sounds as the previous E, it will be a striking addition to any fan’s collection, and will be ready to ship this summer.
Then, coming this fall, the U.S.S. Excelsior, registry number NCC-2000, is finally joining DST’s electronic Starfleet! Measuring 16 inches long, the Excelsior features new sculpted parts to differentiate it from the Excelsior-class Enterprise B, while maintaining the same great light-up features! The sound files are all-new, as well, with plenty of great quotes from Captain Hikaru Sulu, using the actual voice of actor George Takei.
I love the look and design of both of these, and though I wish they were 25-inch or more in length, I know many will glady grab these up and display them with pride throughout their office or home.
