My first build of 2013: the starship Enterprise.

It suddenly hit me why I bought all those Lego X-Pods back in the mid-2000’s: it’s because I thought the saucer parts would make for great primary hulls on Constitution-class ships from Star Trek.

It’s taken me this long to put together a version of the Enterprise, seen in the motion pictures; there’s about 50 pieces in this bad boy.
