I've been into Star Trek since I was a kid. When I was around 8 I tried to build my favorite version of the Enterprise, the Refit Constitution Class that appeared in the original movies, there was just something about the design that caught me, she was so graceful and beautiful. The problem I had at that point was a lack of proper parts. 20 or so years later with Bricklink and a good dose of inspiration provided by the amazing USS Reliant posted a while ago by Myko I set off to finally build my Starship and here is the result. She measures in at just over 4 feet long and a little over 2 feet wide. I'm not sure how many bricks I used because I never count
Sorry if the quality of my pictures isn't that great. My camera is old and I don't have a lot of room to shoot the pics in. One of the features that doesn't show well is the lights. In the Saucer section the windows along the edges, Red and Green Port and Starboard lights, Observation Lounge behind the Bridge as well as the Dome and Impulse Engines and lower dome on the underside of the saucer all light up and in the Secondary Hull the Main Deflector, Cargo Bays and Shuttlebay are lit as well as 2 accent lights the illuminate the nacelle pylons.

Close up of the Nacelle Pylon. If you look closely you can see one of the accent lights
The Photon Torpedo Launchers
Under the Saucer again. The plastic tube isn't really needed for support but I wasn't taking any chances
View from the stern. The Transparent red area lights up as well
The Shuttlebay doors are removable and inside is a fully detailed bay with lights and 2 shuttlecraft
Close up of one of the shuttles out of the bay, the white area on the forward piece is thin strips of white electrical tape
From the tip of the Nacelle you can kinda see the light in the Observation Lounge window
The side of the ship. Note how the plastic tube made a cool effect with the camera flash
The ships "Neck" between the Saucer and secondary hull.
A view of the side of the ship that shows off the nacelles and shuttlebay
A Bow on shot of the ship, I had to use fishing line to keep the Nacelles where they need to be
Hope you all like my creation as much as I do. Live Long and Prosper
