- Star Trek the Official Starships Collection Klingon Augments’ Ship #53 by Eaglemoss
- Magazine not included
This ship has been painstakingly recreated in die-cast and plastic materials then hand painted with an incredible level of detail. Vehicle measures approximately 5-inches long x 3 1/2-inches wide x 2-inches tall. The Augment Crisis is the name given to a series of events in May 2154 when war nearly broke out between United Earth and the Klingon Empire because of interference by the Augments. Augments are a series of genetically engineered Augment embryos (left over from the Eugenics Wars). After the Augment crisis, the Klingons attempted to create their own augments to combat the Humans, believing that Humans would place Augments on their ships and put the Klingons at a severe disadvantage, despite Vulcan’s assurance that Earth had banned such genetic enhancement decades ago. They were able to retrieve multiple embryos left over in the debris of the Augment Bird-of-Prey and implemented their DNA in certain Klingons. However, due to the aggressiveness of Augment DNA, the cranial ridges started to dissolve and the Klingon Augments completely lacked ridges on their foreheads. The Klingon Augments’ Ship is part of the Starships Collection of Star Trek vehicles by Eaglemoss. This incredible collection includes all the most significant ships from the five Star Trek television series. Imported from the U.K. with limited distribution in the U.S., these ships are not easy to find for sale in the United States. The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 80 ships in total.
