The U.S.S. Enterprise E made its debut in 1996’s Star Trek: First Contact, and is the second Enterprise ship to be commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, after the destruction of the Enterprise D in Star Trek: Generations. The Enterprise is the flagship of the Federation, and under Picard’s command, he had taken command of the fleet in the beginning of First Contact with the engagement of the Borg Cube. The ship is also one of the most powerful in the fleet, and is a Sovereign-class starship that was launched in 2372 from the San Fransisco Ship Yards. This Enterprise was also featured in 1998’s Star Trek: Insurrection, and 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis.

The U.S.S. Enterprise E is made of die-cast metal and plastic parts, and measures 10.5″ long. The ships features hand-painted deco detailing every aspect of the ship as seen in several Star Trek films. This is a larger model compared to other Star Trek ships that Eaglemoss produces, as they are offering more high-end quality products with a better likeness, detail, and sculpting, and at a higher price point. Every aspect of this ship is inspired from the screen appearance, including all the grey and black deco detailing the windows so precisely it’s just remarkable that these tiny lines are all crisp and straight. The dark grey and dark tan deco on the back of the saucer section and the back of the ship features great detailing as seen in the film.
On the ship, there is also red lines on the saucer section, straight crisp lines down the center of the back, as well as red lines around the text on the warp nacelles.The saucer section also has the bridge located on the very top with the black windshield, deflector dish on the bottom that is painted in metallic copper. On the saucer section, the U.S.S. Enterprise is written, along with the words NCC-1701-E in black with red deco around the edges. There is also yellow deco on the edge of this section in four locations, with additional yellow deco on the top front and bottom. The back of the saucer section also has translucent red plastic that are a lighter red than the one’s on the warp nacelles. The bottom of the saucer section has more of the slightly darker grey deco than the top, which is all neatly painted and detailed. The same text appears on the bottom of the saucer section, which includes the NCC-1701-E in black with red deco.
The warp nacelles also have translucent blue and red plastic parts, and this is the part of the ship that is made of plastic. On the sides of the nacelles, are the words U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E in black deco, and Star Ship U.S.S. Enterprise United Federation of Planets with red lines on top and below it. This text is located in four places on the nacelles, which are in the mirror opposite side for both.
Overall, this is an incredibly detailed ship with superior paint applications and a great sculpt depicting the likeness from the films. This ship is so well done it looks like it just came right out of the film itself. Star Trek fans will definitely want to pick this up along with many other ships and collectibles from Eaglemoss.
