    Star Trek USS Enterprise NCC-1701

    created by fugazi on 2012.03.04

    Main Section
    The iconic original Starship Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, is possibly the most widely known ship in the whole sci-fi universe.

    As a first venture in the Star Trek license universe, I propose a small model (circa 220 parts) of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701. This model would probably have a RRP of about GBP25/U$35.

    This is a difficult model to recreate in such a small scale, but I'm sure the Lego designers would find ways to improve on my prototype of the USS Enterprise and make it really stunning! Many of you would probably rather vote for a 3000+ parts detailed UCS starship, but the likelihood of a UCS project being commercialized by Lego is slim considering that not many would be ready to pay a realistic price for such a model.

    The LDD model shown here has a few minor issues (for instance the angle of the nacelles is not quite right) that cannot be fixed using the current version of the software. I will build a physical model as soon as possible to demonstrate what the Enterprise should look like in plastic. Also, this will allow me to add a few essential decals that should improve the final product!

    Comments and suggestions most welcome!

    Decals (registry and name of the ship, stripes) will be added to the physical model.

    This version is built using only currently available parts and colours. This will be the blueprint for the physical model.

    Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

    2013.11.19

    First and foremost, thank you for creating this project on LEGO® CUUSOO!

    We've looked into the possibility of producing a set based on this licensed property (Star Trek), and since another company has the construction toy license for this IP, we can’t pursue this further as a potential LEGO set. We're sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news.

    With any IP on LEGO CUUSOO is that there is the potential of a license conflict, either with an existing license or with a competitive licensor. Still, we think it’s better to be open and allow for possibilities, knowing there will be "no" answers along the way, than shut out the potential of IP-based products altogether. After all, just because this project isn’t a possibility doesn’t mean all IP projects wouldn’t be. 

    We've archived this project now since we know it isn't feasible. Your project will remain visible on LEGO CUUSOO, but in a status where it can no longer be supported or commented on. This way fans can still admire your creation.

    Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don't always work. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like this Star Trek project and for the opportunity to be challenged. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick. We hope to see more projects from you soon.

    The LEGO CUUSOO Team


    Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
