from "Galaxy Quest" (1999)
About the Design
The N.S.E.A. Protector is both the centerpiece of the hit 1999 sci-fi comedy "Galaxy Quest" and "Galaxy Quest," the cheezy (and wholly fictional) 1970s-era show-within-a-show the movie celebrates. The Protector is the flagship for the National Space Exploration Administration (N.S.E.A.), an earth-based organization not unlike "Star Trek"'s United Federation of Planets. Carrying a crew of nearly 1,000 representing a cross-section of human and alien cultures, the Protector is a powerful paladin of peace and freedom throughout the known galaxy.
Fun Fact: The N.T.E. prefix on the ship's registration number stands for "Not the Enterprise."
Never give up! Never surrender!
About the Kit
Released in late 2009, the "Protector" was among the first kits produced by Pegasus Hobbies. Part of the "Sci-Fi Renaissance" of the late 2000s, the "Protector" featured a display stand and a removable "Command Module."
This model was built from an original issue.
