In Star Trek: Voyager’s sixth season episode ‘Tsunkatse’, an illegal arena-ship played host to a Norcadian pit fight between Seven of Nine and a Pendari champion — played by none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson! We can only hope that Borg are insulated, considering she was up against the most electrifying man in sports entertainment.
Now we’re getting ready to rumble with the latest entry in Hero Collector’s Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection!
This die-cast model recreates the arena-ship’s intriguing appearance in hand-painted detail – but where did its design come from? In the magazine page below, the ship’s designer Rick Sternbach explains the thought process that led him to the starship’s unique look.
The full magazine accompanies the Tsunkatse Starship Model, and includes the ship’s specs, trivia from the episode’s story and production, and an interview with Star Trek: Voyager writer Robert J. Doherty.
