USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C Micro Machines

Eclectorama showcased a nice USS Grissom the other day, which got me digging for my mini Star Trek ships. Most of the fleet are still on a mission to dodge Ping-pong balls at my parents house, but the Enterprise C got to stay close captured in a plastic baggy!

I believe the only time this ship shows up is in the Next Generation Episode 'Yesterday's Enterprise.' Which I read somewhere just recently (?) that it would have been saved for a feature film had the producers known that Next Gen would make movie stage. What a great movie that would have been.

The designers of the ship did a good job bridging the gap between an Enterprise B and D. It looks like it fits right into the line. Although the engines are a little stumpy! I am glad they started making them long and dart like with the E. If you have no idea what I am talking about, consider yourself lucky.

Darn little bugger was hard to shoot with my old 4 MP camera with the over the top flash.

Nice, I don't have this one, didn't it come with one of the larger box sets?

The Micro Machines Star Trek and Star Wars lines were awesome I kept a few of my favorites as well. And, I hear ya, those little guys can be fun to shoot pics of.

I can't remember how I got this one, it might have been a larger box set, or a gift. I remember there were at least 3 large packs of Star Trek ships.

They also had the large sets in silver paint as well, maybe a gold color... can't remember.

I have the "A" from a large set somebody gave me, I'll have to shoot some pics.
