If you really like your ship in the free-to-play MMORGP Star Trek Online, you soon will have the option to have an actual replica. Today Cryptic announced a partnership with Mixed Dimensions to offer players the chance to get “3D handcrafted starship collectibles, captured directly from the PC version of Star Trek Online.”
In a statement, STO executive producer Stephen Ricossa said:
“We are absolutely elated to expand Star Trek Online to the physical universe. Our new partnership with Mixed Dimensions will allow our community to immortalize their favorite starships. We can’t wait to see the reaction from our captains when the first wave of ships begins to roll out.”
After players design their own starship from within the game, they can upload their model to the GamePrint web site, where they will be offered several different purchase options. Captains can commission one of the company’s master artists to hand paint an incredibly detailed, 12” resin high-end collectible version of their starship. They can also order a single-color version or a primed model, which allows them to paint the entire starship themselves. For those who prefer to stick with the classics, GamePrint will also offer completed models replicating 20 of Star Trek Online’s exclusive and most popular starships.
The option to have your ship made into a 3D model will be availalbe in March. Pricing has yet to be announced.
