EMvTW 93: ECS Horizon (J-Class)

NOTE:  You can click on most pictures to get a larger view of them.

It has been a while since we reviewed a freighter, in fact, I forgot that this type of freighter even existed.  So let us now take a look at the ECS Horizon, a J-Class Freighter, which we were introduced to in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode titled "Fortunate Son".


EMvTW 92: Medusan Ship

EMvTW 91: USS Saratoga (NCC-31911) (Miranda Class)

NOTE:  You can click on most pictures to get a larger view of them.

Lately, when I have an Eaglemoss model to review, I normally don't have anything else to compare it to.  Especially when it comes to pre-built and pre-painted models.  That is technically the same case with this next model. the USS Saratoga, a Miranda Class Variant that we are introduced to very briefly in the Star Trek: Deespace Nine series premiere episode titled, "Emissary".


My current collection of this ship consists of the Eaglemoss model, an AMT (Round 2) model that I built, and a slightly inaccurate MicroMachine.

EMvTW 90: Romulan Scout Ship (Lanora Class)

NOTE:  You can click on most pictures to get a larger view of them.

November was another good month for me financially, so I was able to do some more catching up on the Eaglemoss collection.

First up for this month's reviews is the Romulan Scout Ship that we were first introduced to in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode titled "The Defector".


My collection of this ship consists of the Eaglemoss model and a very dusty MicroMachines version.

EMvTW 89: USS Enterprise NCC-1701-J (Universe Class)

NOTE:  You can click on most pictures to get a larger view of them.

The last review that I have from this/last month's purchases of Eaglemoss models is the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-J as was seen in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode titled "Azati Prime".


Per this Memory Alpha LINK and Memory Beta LINK, this type of ship was classified as a Universe Class and "was a Federation starship class, a multi-mission explorer in Starfleet service in the 26th century."  The Enterprise J was a massive vessel, around 2 miles in length, and we only get a brief glimpse of her in that episode.  You can read more about the Enterprise J at the following Memory Alpha and Memory Beta links.
