Limited Edition 2009 STAR TREK U.S.S. Enterprise 1701 Studio Scale Replica (QMx)

This is a brand new Quantum Mechanix licensed Limited Edition (of only 250) studio scale replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise from J.J. Abrams’ 2009 STAR TREK film.

This nearly 3-foot long replica is screen-accurate in every respect having been designed from the ground up using the same master digital files used by Industrial Light & Magic to create the film’s visual effects.

The Artisan Enterprise is entirely airbrushed by hand with some 24 colors of metallic and flat paint. A technique known as Aztecing overlaps color layers, multiplying the color effects and giving the finish an extraordinary degree of depth, while precisely matching the hull plating seen in the movie. An automotive base lacquer underneath it all – the same technique used to prepare filming miniatures for hours under hot studio lights – primes and protects the replica.

The sculpture consists of thousands of details, many of which are only barely glimpsed on screen. You could spend hours studying this replica and still find new surprises around the next curve.

Simply put, the combination of meticulous sculpture and expertly applied paint makes the QMx Artisan Enterprise one of the most detailed and accurate replicas of a Star Trek starship that’s ever been offered for retail purchase.

Very Special Effects

But what filming miniature would be complete without special lighting effects? This Artisan Enterprise features approximately 200 custom-built lighting effects that truly bring the starship to life. These effects include:

  • Static interior and exterior lighting.
  • Anti-collision and formation lighting (flash and strobe).
  • Fluid plasma effect inside the impulse engines.
  • Bussard collectors – Custom circuits and motion effects reproduce the look of the forward end of each warp nacelle.
  • Illuminated deflector dish – The dish itself is a specially-built lighting element – not just lit up by a bulb – with light lines 
  • radiating out from the center of the dish, just like in the movie.
  • Interior lighting for the shuttle bay.
  • Four-function remote control – The QMx Artisan Enterprise comes with a custom remote for interior, warp and impulse, 
  • formation and auxiliary lighting.

Superior Construction

The QMx Artisan Enterprise replica is constructed with only the best materials available, including resin, laser-cut acrylic and styrene, and features an internal network of brass tubing and steel rods that help ensure rigidity and longevity. Only the ship’s registry number and name are applied as decals: All other graphics are hand painted.

Dimensions:

34″ long x 15.75″ wide x 7.5″ high
Stand adds 5.25″ to the overall height

Mirrored Base
The U.S.S. Enterprise Artisan Replica sits on a stand that’s principally a large, rectangular mirror – perfect for showing off the details on the underside of the ship – framed with a faux metal hull plate and bracketed by four brass plaques. Plaques on either side of the ship include the ship’s name and edition number.

Studio Pro Shipping Container
