from "Star Trek: Generations" (1994)
About the Design
Before the Enterprise-B became part of "Star Trek" canon, fans long speculated that the starship that occupied the space between the movies' "Enterprise-A" Constitution Class refit and the Ambassador Class "Enterprise-C" from "ST:TNG" was some sort of Excelsior Class variant. This was proven correct in the prologue of 1994's first "ST:TNG" movie, "Star Trek-Generations." That script called for TOS's Captain Kirk to be blown out of the engineering section during an emergency repair operation; so as not to damage the original Excelsior filming miniature, the model makers added an extension to the engineering hull, then slapped additional impulse engines to the main saucer and customized end-caps to the warp nacelles just for good measure.
About the Kit
Although produced in the same 1/1000 scale as the original Excelsior model, this Enterprise-B kit faithfully captured all the upgrades made to actual filming miniature. It was produced briefly following "Generations"'s 1994 release, then re-released by Round 2 under the AMT label before disappearing once again from the company's catalog.
This model was built from an original issue.
