EMvTW Special 07: Jellyfish


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

My last Eaglemoss Vs. The Review for this month is going to focus on Eaglemoss' special release model, The Jellyfish.  We are introduced to this vessel in Star Trek (2009), which I "lovingly call NuTrek.


Eaglemoss has produced this model in thier larger Special Edition size.  Personally, I think it was a waste for them to do this, but apparently, they are being forced to by Paramount, who are being buttholes about licensing.  I want to use a stronger language than butthole to demonstrate how I really feel, but I also have to keep this clean for my reading audience.  So the story is, Paramount will only allow Eaglemoss to produce ships from the new movies as Special Editions, so in several cases, we are forced to wait and then we are "treated" to something that is just plain over the top and wasteful from a design and model perspective.  I've complained about this before, so I will stop my ranting there.

EMvTW 77: Romulan Shuttle

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

Moving right along and coming out on the other end of this month's reviews, I now bring you the Romulan shuttle as it was seen in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's episode, "In the Pale Moonlight".


There has never been an official ship classification given to this type of vessel other than "shuttle".  Even in the non-cannon universe, it was never officially named.

EMvTW 76: Baxial (Drexia Class)

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

The next ship we are going to take a look at in my Eaglemoss Vs. The World series is Neelix's ship from Star Trek: Voyager, The Baxial.


To quote Neelix himself, "...I thought she was the ugliest thing I ever saw. But she grew on me. Eventually, I couldn't imagine being without her.".

Although, an official class name was never mentioned in any of the cannon materials, an unofficial class name of Drexia Class was given to this type of freighter.  If you would like to read more about this ship, check out these direct article links on Memory Alpha and Memory Beta.

EMvTW 75: Cousteau (Enterprise-E Captain's Yacht)

Next up for this month's Eaglemoss vs. The World articles is the Enterprise-E's Captain's Yacht which is named The Cousteau.


This addition to the Eaglemoss collection makes for a nice compliment to thier already released USS Enterprise E, which I reviewed a long time ago.  You can check out that review at THIS LINK.

You can read more about the Cousteau at these direct article links on Memory Alpha and Memory Beta.

EMvTW 74: Bajoran Raider

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

January seemed to be a good month financially for me so it looks like I can bring you some new Eaglemoss vs. The World articles.  I feel a bit rusty though as I haven't written one since November of 2016.  Also, these next five reviews are all of ships that ONLY Eaglemoss have produced at the size that I like to collect, so we won't have anything to compare too, thus leaving us with a bit of a shorter than normal article.

So... let's get this thing started with the first one of the new year, the Bajoran Raider.

Firefly Class - Series 3

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

Wow!  Has it really been three months (November 2016) since my last article? I guess so.  I've hinted before that I would need to take a financial hiatus for a bit so, yeah, that was the result.  I managed to scrape up some money for a birthday present to myself, hence this article.

We're going to stray away from Star Trek for once and take a look at a ship from one of my all time favorite, but short lived TV shows, "Firefly".  At least we did get a movie out of it, but it's been a LOOONG time since we've seen anything else.


We are of course talking about the ship called Serenity, a Firefly Class [Series 3] transport from the TV series called "Firefly" and the feature length movie called "Serenity".  As you can from my collection above, I have managed to acquire two variants of this ship as well as printed my own version.
