For years Eagelmoss Hero Collector has been releasing a series of die-cast Star Trek ship models covering the TV and film franchise. And now they are rolling out a new collection of ships, which will include ships from Star Trek: Picard, Discovery, and the upcoming series Strange New Worlds. We have a sneak peek at some of the first releases from this new line.
Hero Collector Star Trek Universe Collection
Under the umbrella title of the Star Trek Universe Starship Collection, 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. These hand-painted, die-cast starship models aim to 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.
Priced around $55 earch, the new line is set to launch in April 2021. Eaglemoss has revealed the first six ships in this monthly collection…
La Sirena: The hero ship of Star Trek: Picard, is a Kaplan F17 Speed Freighter which 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. You can pre-order La Sirena now for $54.95.
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. The Zheng He arrives on May 24 and you can pre-order for $54.95.
The following ships don’t have release dates or pre-order links yet…
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.

Reminder: Build the Enterprise-D program starts this month
If you are looking for something a bit bigger, Hero Collector launches their “Build the U.S.S. Enterprise-D” subscription program in the first half of March. The program has you subscribe to regular deliveries of parts and simple instructions (without the need for glue or paint) to form your own 2-foot long U.S.S Enterprise-D model, complete with stand, detachable saucer, and internal lights.
Subscribers will receive four kits every month for $12.90 for each kit. There are a total of 120 kits, so it will take around 30 months to complete the model. The first two kits have an introductory price of $4.95 with free shipping and you also get some free pins.
