A starship is many things to many people. A home. A vessel. A pillar of strength. Comfort and protection in the midst of a hostile environment. All of these roles combine to create a community for a diversity of beings with a singular purpose: Peace, protection, and exploration. To those living within and those who merely watch it pass by, a Starship is, above all things, a symbol of these qualities. And in the long and proud history of Starfleet, no starships have embodied those ideals more so than those that have carried the name, U.S.S. Enterprise.
For more than seven years, from its first mission at Farpoint to its destruction on the surface of Veridian III, the Enterprise-D carried that mantle. As the flagship of the Federation fleet, and commanded by her captain, Jean-Luc Picard, she played host to diplomats and emissaries, explored strange and wondrous new worlds, and carried her crew into battle. The tales told of the Enterprise-D are now the stuff of legend, in which a ship and her crew, like those who came before, would boldly go into the unknown and emerge triumphant.
The Chronicle Collectibles replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D is a true 1/1000th representation of that legendary ship. Lovingly recreated using a combination of fiberglass, aluminum, and resin, the Enterprise-D stands at an impressive two feet in length. Engines, deflector dish, and windows are all faithfully lit with an array of LEDs. And the illuminated display base carries the model at a height of 14 inches.
