The celebration for Star Trek’s 40th anni-
versary is underway!
Corgi International, a company that pro-
duces die-cast scale models, will make Trek
collectibles in 2006, according to Yahoo.com.
The first two models, arriving in Febru-
ary, will be Captain Kirk’s original Enterprise
and an original Klingon Bird of Prey.
In May, these will be joined by Captain
Picard’s Enterprise, the NCC 1701-D from
Star Trek: The Next Generation. In the fall,
Corgi will release a limited edition of all three
ships with light-up bases.
“Star Trek, like Corgi, has entertained
generations of children and grown-ups over
the years,” said David Wootliff, Corgi’s mar-
keting director. “We are delighted to be able
to commemorate such a significant achieve-
ment with top quality replica models.”
