    I love it :) I see it as Archer's Enterprise, to me it's more similar to Archer's ship than o Kirk's. Isn't it? This is good for me,, in my opinion, Archer's the best :) I'm gonna try to do it as soon as I finished moving in my new house and so I can get access to my lovely Legos!

    Fairly crafty, utilizing the secondary hull pieces upside-down...anyways, two suggestions. One, it wasn't until the movies that they added rear nacelle glow. if you put a red jewel up front and a clear one in back, that would be close to the original series. Second, if you wedge a grey jewel between the studs on the upper half of the primary hull, that would be the bridge and upper command decks. If you look at schematics (or even just pictures) youll see a distinguishable nub there, and a grey jewel would work perfectly.

    You know you could add a half dome to the top for the bridge... or maybe you could add a stud, the smallest disk avaible, and another stud...hmmm....

    "The pieces included shouldn't be very hard to come"!

    It's a good module but a lot of the peaces are not 'standard'.

    Some of the specialised peaces are:
    The top and bottom of the saucer.
    The transparent base with a sucker.
    The round thin 2x2's.

    Well most people i know have at least two or more of the saucer pieces, and the base is optional, sorry. :l

    Excellent instructable!

    For anyone that is interested in building and does not have the parts to build - here is how to get the parts you need.

    If you download Lego's Free Digital Designer (PC and MAC) - you can build the ship within the program and submit it to Lego and they will ship you all the parts you need - you even have the option of getting it in a box that looks all professional with and image of the completed model and step by step instructions as if you are purchasing it from your local toy store - it's an excellent option for a gift. Remember to double or triple your parts if you want to make more then one - and it gets a little cheaper this way.

    Here is a link to the program.

    You'll spend hours playing with this excellent little piece of software! TIP: You can go on Lego's site and download other users creations and check them out within the program.

    Wouldn't red have been better?
    The ends of the nacelles were red in the show.
