That is FANTASTIC news!!! I know that Frank has been working with the licensing folks for a VERY long time on this, I'm glad it has finally come to pass! I thought Revell did a great job on their JJPrise, but I look forward to what Team Moebius will bring to the table !

now that the cat is out of the bag, I can say that Frank is using the build I did last year for his display model. I am very honored.

This is fantastic news!
Still don't care much for the NuE, but I would love kits of the other ships shown on screen!

Great and unexpected news! The Revell version is very good, but I'm looking forward to the Moebius version and whatever other Trek ships they produce.

Great news! There's high respect for Moebius' level of quality and accuracy, so the new kits shouldn't be the aftermarket magnets that the old AMT kits were (and even the Revell JJprise). We might now actually GET kits of the Kelvin, Franklin, etc. If Moebius wastes our time with nonsense like the air car that Khan uses to shoot up Federation headquarters in Into Darkness, however, that will be a shame. Guys? No Kazon torpedoes or Scorpions, please! This news should also be a wake up call to Round 2. New kits. Accurate kits. Make. An. Effort.

Of course by the time the kit from Star Trek 3 is out, the franchise will be on Star Trek 19 (based on the length of time to get most kits out)

Looking forward to this. Saw it a few hours ago. If I'm not mistaken the saucer looks taller and the angle is steeper. On the lookout for better images.

This is true for me as well. I'm hoping for kits of the Klingon D4 Bird of Prey from Star Trek Into Darkness and the U.S.S. Franklin from Star Trek Beyond.

Other then the Jelllyfish, I like their choices. I'd rather have the Klingon D4, as was mentioned, in place of the Jellyfish.

It would have been nice if they'd thrown in the 1701-A from the end of Beyond, but I'll take it. The Kelvin and Franklin will be AWEEESOME. I might also do the Enterprise and Jellyfish too at some point.

Thanks. I suppose this list makes sense--release the "good guy" ships first, and see how that goes before getting into the more obscure (i.e., less screen time) ships.
