Box Text:  A unique ornament – featuring the U.S.S. Enterprise-E NCC-1701-E from Star Trek: First Contact.  Under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the crew of the 24th-century Starship Enterprise is traveling back in time to the 21st century.  There, they’ll confront the biggest threat to the Star Trek universe – the Borg, whose actions would alter history and turn Earth into a Borg colony.  The U.S.S. Enterprise seen in the movie is the sixth starship in the history of the Federation to carry the proud name Enterprise.

The front deflector shield as well as both warp engines and the impulse engines are lighted.

Serial #:  QXI7633

Lynn Norton…“I adore the E. They did things to it to make it look more aerodynamic than it needed to be, but those choices gave it more style—a more swept-back, speedy appearance like a modern race car.

“There were a lot of products out there being developed right along side the model during (Star Trek: First Contact’s) production. I was getting the same photos from the studio as everyone else was, and originally the E had a blue-glowing deflector array. We went to see the movie and there’s that whole scene set on the deflector array and they’re out there walking around on it—and it’s amber! I was like ‘What the?’ But we were able to make that change while the ornament was in development at the toolmaker. Because it didn’t go to stores right away, our ornament was one of the few screen-accurate products on the market at the time.”
