Shenzhou NCC-1227 that is designed in a light grey over the red deco on the saucer section. The vessel is screen accurate, and features a details such as the deflector dish, light banks, and various other details on the body that makes it look so unique. One interesting detail on this ship is that the bridge is located on the underside of the ship, as opposed to the top that is more commonly designed. Included with the ship is a base with an acrylic stand.
The starship includes a collector’s magazine that includes details about the ship itself, its Captain, the mission and the encounter with the Klingon’s as seen in the beginning of the series, as well as the designing process. The magazine includes images, sketches, and renders of the ship as it appears on the show. An additional brochure is included, showcasing other ships that will be available in the collection.
Overall, the U.S.S. Shenzhou is a fantastic looking starship with a great design that stands out compared to another Federation ship fans have seen so far. The vessel is nicely sculpted with great addition to detail that fans will love.
