Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection - Nausicaan Fighter
Star Trek The Official Starships Collection Issue 30's highly detailed model is a Nausicaan fighter. This piratical starship was first encountered by the crew of the Enterprise NX-01 in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode 'Fortunate Son'. Squadrons of Nausicaan fighters like this were a persistent threat along Alpha-Quadrant trade routes in the 22nd century. The magazine examines the compact, yet tough design of this starship, its thuggish crew and how one violent encounter with a Nausicaan almost ended the career of a young Jean-Luc Picard.
