That PHASE II model definitely takes a few liberties with the design (as drawn by Jefferies) and the VFX model (which was near-complete when the show was scrapped). Most notably, they just stuck the TOS sensor/deflector dish on the front of the secondary hull, which doesnít match the references, or Jefferiesí intent of a more streamlined, enclosed dish. By and large, though, itís a pretty accurate reflection of the intended design.

That all being said, itís really cool to see this model being made. If I didnít already have mine, Iíd snap this one right up. At the very least, Iíd love to read the magazine thatíll come with it. Best part of this collection. I bought the first volume of the hardcover books which collect all of the magazine articles on the ships.

Agree Greg. When I compare the Star Trek magazines with the Marvel Collection magazines. It's like it is a totally different company.
