Under the umbrella title of the Star Trek Universe Starship Collection, Hero Collector is opening a new chapter in their die-cast Star Trek range, with a new collection featuring starships from Picard, Discovery, and Strange New Worlds – everything a modern Star Trek fan could ask for!
We have known for some time that the current slate of Hero Collectors starship collectables will be changing, with its ships from Star Trek: Discovery coming to an end with issue 33. Instead, a new range was going to be launched that would encompass all ships from the current crop of Star Trek TV shows and in April 2021 we will see the Star Trek Universe line launched with the La Sirena.
In fact, we had already previewed the first three issues in this new Star Trek Universe series and we knew that following the La Sirena we would get the USS Zheng He and a classic Romulan Bird of Prey. Now it seems we can reveal that the first 6 issues of the Star Trek Universe release schedule will all focus on vessels seen in Star Trek: Picard which will include Narek’s Snakehead and Seven of Nines Ferris Rangers ship.
La Sirena: The hero ship of Star Trek: Picard, this Kaplan F17 Speed Freighter was hired by Jean-Luc Picard and helmed by Captain Rios, an ex-Starfleet officer himself. It was a discreet warp-capable ship, well-suited to the search for Soji Asha.
U.S.S. Zheng He: An Inquiry-class starship, the U.S.S. Zheng He was touted as the toughest, fastest, most powerful ship Starfleet had ever put into service. William Riker returned from retirement to captain it into battle above the planet Coppelius.
Romulan Bird-of-Prey: A retro callback to the classic Romulan designs of the Original Series, this antique Romulan starship was owned by the warlord Kar Kantar, and terrorized shipping throughout the Qiris Sector.
Fenris Ranger Ship: A small, aggressively-armed one-person starship, this vessel was piloted by Seven of Nine in her work with the vigilante Fenris Rangers. She used it to come to the resuce of La Sirena when it came under fire in the Qiris Sector.
Narek’s Snakehead: A nimble Romulan scout vessel, the Snakehead’s size belied its formidable armaments and cloaking capabilities. Narek flew this starship in pursuit of La Sirena, as it fled The Artifact.
Romulan Bomber Warbird: A new class of Romulan starship, this sharp-edged, angular warbird was employed by both the Romulan Free State and the secretive Tal Shiar in their exploitation of The Artifact.
These hand-painted, die-cast starship models perfectly replicate the most iconic starships from modern live-action Star Trek TV series – and each one is accompanied by an in-depth magazine, including ship specs, behind-the-scenes info, and interviews with designers. this new series is designed as a continuation of Hero Collector’s popular Star Trek: Discovery Starships Collection, featuring new starships at the same scale, to keep collections compatible.
