This is a BRILLIANT item for the older Trek collector. It's not a toy. Lots of nostalgic fun visually and aurally, but not something that's going to survive any amount of physical 'play'. Negatives? The overall colour is inaccurate - it's too dark. And at least one of the sampled phrases of Bill Shatner's Kirk dialogue is edited too sharply and cuts off abruptly. But the zinger is the stand that the ship comes with. It's not fit for purpose. Try pressing the top button to trigger the lights and sounds - without firmly holding the rest of the craft - and it's going to be in tiny, gray pieces on your living room floor. Even as a general support, without any contact, it's just not up to the job. So you'll literally have to "make a stand."

Delivery came very quick.great service well packaged. The model looks great all you do is put it on the stand press the top and it lights up and you get half a dozen quotes. Sound is crystal clear and loud enough. ..only fault could have had a few more quotes. ..not a toy tho strictly for show

4.0 out of 5 stars "She's a beautiful lady, and we love her!" 30 Sep 2009

(The quote was spoken by Captain Kirk in "I, Mudd")

Until the mid 1960s, space vehicles in science fiction were either shaped like flying saucers or rocket ships. In 1966, Star Trek debuted and changed all that with one of the most original and iconic vehicles of all time, the USS Enterprise. Art Asylum originally released three versions of the ship in 2006 (for Trek's 40th anniversary). The three variants were: the one shot for the original pilot "The Cage"; the one shot for the series pilot "Where No Man Has Gone Before"; and the production version that was used throughout the series (outside of reused footage, of course). Plenty has been written about those ships already, so I'm not going to go into their differences (mostly the size and shape of the bridge, deflector dish and engine pods). This re-release (from September 2009) was touted as having the more intricate detailing that was seen during the remastered Star Trek's CGI shots. But is it worth the extra cost?

Short answer: YES!

Though it's from the same mold as the 2006 versions (which were based on the physical model), this Enterprise looks a bit more like the CGI model. The paint is a darker gray, and it's less glossy. There's a grid on the top of the saucer section (with four white rectangles) that includes the "rust ring" near the front edge. The "grills" inside each engine nacelle have silver rectangles inside with tiny black dots (I guess they're supposed to represent perforations in the "metal"). The bussard collectors are more of a transparent yellow than red (for a reason, see the paragraph on lights below). Of note, the 2006 versions had painted-over plugs that covered screw holes on the bottom of the saucer. The 2009 model instead hides the screws under the triangular shapes, which is great! Of course, the plugs on the engineering section still show, but at least they made an effort to make the ship look better.

The stand is the same one used for the 2006 versions. The cost of producing new ones was probably too expensive for AA to implement, but it's still disappointing they couldn't come up with something better. Posing the ship off-center will cause everything to fall over. The fact that only one side slopes up to the mounting cylinder causes balance issues as well (the stands for the Enterprise-D were stronger in that regard, as they sloped up from the middle and were all one piece, where here you have to insert the vertical part into a slot on the side of the base). The top of the mounting cylinder doesn't fit easily into the ship, and you have to press very firmly for it to go all the way in. Be careful though, otherwise you may end up breaking something!

There are new sounds for this ship. These include longer dialogue from Captain Kirk ("This is Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise representing the United Federation of Planets", etc) as well as new recordings of effects like the transporter and photon torpedoes. I especially like the warp effect sound, which is longer and shows off the lights nicely. The phaser effect is missing, and I wish there were more sounds overall, but what's here is nice. AA easily could have reused the existing effects, so these are a welcome surprise.

The lighting effects are also improved. The saucer domes and navigational lights (red and green on the sides of the saucer) are pretty much the same, but the fronts of the engines have been modified. On the 2006 models, they just glowed red, but here they slowly change from red to yellow to green and more closely resemble the ones on the show (the yellowish plastic helps with the effect). I don't know how AA managed to do make the colors change, but it looks great! As with the 2006 versions, if you hold the bridge section down for five seconds the lights will turn on and stay on until you turn them off by pressing it again.

The box is slightly different from the 2006 releases in that the pictures on the back and description of the effects are changed. Unfortunately, the ties and plastic that holds the ship in place are a bit too tight, so I ended up with some scratches on mine. Aside from that, a few areas had glue reside, and one window near the bottom saucer dome was painted green instead of dark gray (!). These are minor nitpicks though, and issues that appear on all of AA's Trek ships.

EDIT: I've reviewed a couple other AA ships, and recommended painting most of the windows with a white paint pen. I did the same with this ship (ALL the windows this time, as the whole ship is always lit on screen). I also painted the spheres on the back of the engines, and brightened up the four rectangles on the top of the saucer. It looks a lot better now, though I wish the ship was a lighter gray, as the other details (the rings on the bottom of the saucer, the rectangular parts around the dish) are hard to make out from a distance.

Overall though, this is still a fantastic model/toy, and you'll be proud to have it in your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars They need a group that knows how to use glue without sniffing it! 3 Mar 2010

Over all not to bad;but not that good either. I'd purchased it from Go Hastings whereas the other ship I'd got from them was just fine. The left nacelle(with the ship coming at you) has a flow of glue coming out on its far left side at least a 1/2" into the lens as if the glue person held the ship,that left nacelle down near the floor and the right nacelle high;after gluing then putting the yellow lens for the left nacelle in place. I had a difficult time convincing me that (with the ship going to the left on the shelf) you couldn't see the flow. I was sorely tempted to return it for a refund and try to order it again;But after reading the other reviews, I found myself thinking that with my luck,after going through the return...the refund ....the re-order...the waiting all over again....I'd get one ever WORSE! Perhaps, if they'd hire people who were more interested in the pride that comes from perfecting their techniques of how to use glue RATHER than sniffing it;they could produces a product with little or no errors?
How 'bout it Diamond Select Toys?

P.S. Oh,and they REALLY need to produce a stronger more stable stand for the ship.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality. 26 Jan 2010

I agree with Neurogaijin. This ship is of horrible quality. The seams are huge and poorly fitted, there are glue smears all over it, some of the parts still have the edges where they were clipped from the mold runners and the paint is pitiful. Hell, on one nacelle the identification numbers (which cross over the seam) are offset by 1/8". I wonder if this company has any quality control at all or if they just don't care.
The only quality in the ship seems to be in the lighting and sound which are pretty good.
I admit, I read the reviews and took a shot and got a piece of junk. Buyer beware.
Note: this review is in response to the manufacture of the toy, not the seller. I have had no problems with the seller at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars So awesome it's easy to forget it's a toy! 3 May 2013
By A. Y. Wang - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this for my son, who is now going through all of the Star Trek series for the first time. Okay, okay -- it's partially for me as well. I have not seen any of the assembly problems that seem to have plagued previous releases, such as excessive glue or large gaps in the seams. The only nits that I have to pick are 1) that the plugs for the screws that hold the secondary hull together stick out instead of being flush with the hull surface, 2) the marker lights on the saucer section are reversed with the red on the starboard side and the green on the port side, and 3) the stand flexes a bit much due to its design. Re: the marker lights, my friend's father is a pilot and taught me "Red, Right, Wrong" meaning if you see the RED light on the RIGHT side of the aircraft, then it's headed straight towards you, which is WRONG. As I said, they're nits, and I can easily forgive Diamond Select for them in light of what they got right.

The toy seems to be very sturdy, particularly the pylons for the warp nacelles, which was a concern of mine, and the warp nacelles are aligned perfectly. The warp nacelles are firmly attached to the pylons and show very little flex if any. The graphics are very well done with great detail, and the "NCC-1701" on the saucer section is lined up perfectly. Despite my satisfaction with its build quality, I have still cautioned my son about not banging it around since it is plastic and he's still a boy! The best thing about this is that there's a running light mode! I have the NX-01, and it was a bit of a disappointment that this feature was absent from it. It just seems to obvious to me, so it's nice that the HD Enterprise has it.

The other thing I like about this toy is the way the toy mounts on the stand. On the NX-01, you have to swap out the small battery compartment hull piece with a mounting piece that has a hole in it that's roughly 1/4" in diameter, which is where the ball of the stand inserts to mount it, which allows it to swivel on the stand. Without the stand, there's this big, gaping hole on the ventral side of the hull. On the HD NCC-1701, there's a mounting cylinder that the ball/socket joint to the stand, and it has a small keyed stud that's about 1/8" in diameter that goes into the ventral side of the secondary hull. Without the stand, there's still a small hole, but it's unobtrusive. It does come with a secondary battery cover without any hole, but oddly enough, it does not have the same graphics. I'm going to leave the mounting cover on since it looks great even with the hole. The only complaint I have is that the mounting stud fits VERY tightly, and it took a good amount of coaxing to remove it from the secondary hull. Then again, my plan is to hang the starships from my son's ceiling when he's not playing with that particular ship, so this isn't much of an issue.

UPDATE: We have now acquired a number of the Art Asylum/Diamond Select starships, and I have come to the conclusion that the stands simply suck. While the ball/socket joint is great in concept, it sucks in implementation. The plastic from which the stands are made is simply too weak for this design. Even being extremely careful when removing the stand from the starship, 3 of the stands' ball have twisted off. This IS a toy and is meant to be played with, so there shouldn't be any expectation that it be put on a shelf and left there. Even with the additional cylinder piece between the ball joint and ship, it still managed to twist off. I guess this pushes up my plan to hang the ships from the ceiling...

With the lights on, the marker lights blink, and the Bussard collectors slowly phase from red to yellow simulating the rotation seen on the TV series. There is very little light bleed through even with the bright white LEDs on the bridge and navigation dome. The lights also function with the dialog clips.

If you're looking for a perfect reproduction of the Enterprise without any flaws, then you're probably better off buying a model and building/painting/lighting it yourself. If you're looking for a well-built toy that has great detail, is a faithful reproduction of this iconic starship, and is something that you would be proud to show your friends even if you plan to put it on the shelf, then you'll definitely want to get this. I considered buying the smaller starship models by Hot Wheels or Furata for my son, but they are still a little more than half the price of the Diamond Select line while a much smaller product. I think the Diamond Select line provides much more bang for the buck with the lights, sound effects, and larger size.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great For Desk/Dresser Tops 28 Jan 2010

I purchased this model to add to my sci-fi desktop here. Serenity (ornament) & the Enterprise Model/Toy. which as a side note im convinced are the same scale

So heres my thoughts: on a scale of 1 to 10; 1 being a Toy, and 10 being a Model, i give it a 6.

The detail is really nice, and makes a nice addition to my desk. the lights DO stay on when you hold the dome down for 5 seconds (make sure you flip the switch in the battery compartment to play, not "try/try me"), until you tell them to go off. the lighting fx are REALLY nice. almost wish i could make it a nightlight if i could plug it in instead of use batteries hah.

now the box claims it does 8 sound fx/voices. Unless its a random thing and each model is shipped with a differnt sound chip, but mine only does 6. "Red Alert" and "Phaser Attack" do not exsist on mine. Not a problem though i mainly just go with the lighting fx.

As another user on here did, i got white model paint an painted the windows white instead of the grey/black thing they had going on. Looks ALOT nicer now, more like the on-screen version.

Pros:
* Good Detail; as i glance over at it, while typing this, it really looks from a 2' distance like a studio model.

* Fun Special FX. lights and sounds are really good.

Cons:
*There are some toy-like flaws, like the obvious "snap-together" assembly. there is a tiny bit of seperation on my saucer, but my room is dimly lit, and im not trying to win any contests here, so its fine for me.

* The Stand: THIS CANT BE SAID ENOUGH. the ruttin ball-jointed stand it comes with. the third time adjusting it to the pose i wanted, the friction factor went away with the tribbles. After 3 attempts with model glue and 1 with superglue i finnaly got the thing to be poseable (since i had to re-pose it after drying) without it falling over on its own. Because of this the "durability" factor got a 3 from me.

Overall, i really like it. I have no regrets purchasing it, and it makes a really nice addition to my desktop. I would reccomend this for anyone looking to spice up thier office desk, home desk, dresser, or even mantel.
