6 ships on a sprue.
This is based on a modell that was sold at this It's A Wrap! sale and auction
. The text at the page reads:
"BRONZED STARSHIP MODEL
This starship model was designed for use as set dressing for either Star Trek: The Next Generation or Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Its planned use was as set dressing for a captain's ready room or crew quarters and is of an as yet unnamed ship class. The item is built from a Starship Reliant model kit with added post Star Trek: The Motion Picture style warp nacelles that easily could have come from any USS Enterprise-A model kit. It is painted bronze and features no name or registry number. It was intended for use, but never seen in any Star Trek episode. Measures approx. 20 x 10 1/2 x 5 inches."
Interestingly the model featured a reversed rollbar like the USS Trial on memory-alpha
. Maybe the filming model of the Trial was later changed to this. Also the finns at the end of the nacelles are facing inward unlike the ones on a regular Miranda or Constitution Class. Maybe the two ships are actually the same "in-verse". The USS Trial was designated a testbed for new technologies and upgrades from the beginning (hence the name ;-)) . At some point the ship was used to test a quad arrangement of warp nacelles like it was planed for the upcomming Constelation Class. Two additional nacelles where fixed on the phasers at the rollbar and feed through their power conduits. The rest of the rollbar was deemed necessary for stability during warp, but the weapons/sensor pod at its original place interferred with the warpfield. The simple solution was to turn the wohle thing by 180°, thus shifting the pod outside the field, while keeping the stability of the rollbar intact. Some time later the second pair of nacelles where removed, but the rollbar was kept in its new position. Maybe the ship was then mothballed for some time until it was reactivated after Wolf 359 to replace a destroyed ship and quickly bolster the decimated fleet. Or something like this...
