Eaglemoss is offering their Deep Space Station K-7 that is based on the classic Star Trek: The Original Series episode “The Trouble with Tribbles.” This space station is most remembered as the Federation’s first encounter with he Tribbles, a race of round furry creatures known for emitted cooing sounds while touched, as well their prodigious reproductive rate that overcrowds star ships and star bases. The Deep Space Station K-7 is re-created and is made of die-cast and high quality ABS materials to resemble its appearance in this episode.

Thank you to Eaglemoss for providing their Star Trek Starships – Deep Space Station K-7 for review.
Availability: December 2017
The Deep Space Station K-7 is designed using several saucers including the top base, and three smaller bases that are docking ports for starships. The star base was featured in Star Trek: The Original Series episode “The Trouble with Tribbles,” Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s episode “Trials and Tribble-ations,” and in the Star Trek Discovery episode “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad.” The station is one of the first Federation outposts within Federation Space located in the Beta Quadrant.
On the top saucer, the station has the words K-7 on the top dome, and United Federation of Planets on the upper portion of the saucer. Also on the top dome, there is a grey beacon with yellow on the top. The station is painted in a light grey, and features some blue, red and green deco on the upper portion of the domes, including the smaller saucers that are used for docking. The top domes have light and grey deco, which appear to be windows looking outside into space, and the dome on the center saucer has some texture. The domes on the outer saucers have smaller white windows, along with the darker grey stripes around grooves. The smaller domes also have words KA, KB, and KC painted on.
The sculpt itself features detailed lines that gives the body patterns and makes it more eye appealing. The lower portions of the base are cylinder shaped, with the upper portion of it connects to the smaller saucers with pole shaped tunnels, and the lower portion has an opening that looks to fit a few shuttle crafts.
The bottoms of the saucers and cylinder shaped sections have a different pattern sculpted on as opposed to the top, which includes rectangular shapes, circles, and squares.
Included with the station is a stand that is sculpted and fitted to hold it up, with a black base to support it.
Overall, the Deep Space Station K-7 is an excellent re-creation of the model used on Star Trek, and all of the details, paint applications and tooling make a great collectible.
