Starfleet Academy Trainer
from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1993)
About the Design
Featured in Episode #119 "First Duty" of ST:TNG, the Trainer was a one-man shuttle-sized craft used to help Starfleet Academy cadets practice intra-system piloting, navigation and battle tactics. Capable of both space and atmospheric flight, the Trainer was powered by two impulse engines and had no warp capabilities.
The Trainer miniature was built specifically for the "First Duty" episode and marked the craft's one and only appearance on the series.
About the Kit
The Starfleet Academy Trainer model was sculpted by Alfred Wong and cast by Controlled Energy Designs. It featured a clear resin canopy, clear red resin engine exhaust grills, cockpit and a very nicely sculpted female pilot figure.
This kit is no longer in production.
