Franklin Mint Adds 'Phoenix' To Great Material Continuum

Dept: General Star Trek

This letter was sent to UK collectors (and sent in to TrekWeb by AnthonyF), and announces the Franklin Mint's latest Star Trek offering.

Dear Collector,

It all began on 4th April, 2063, as Zefram Cochrane prepared to launch the first ship with warp capabilities. Unbeknownst to Cochrane, his flight would play a crucial role in galactic history, for this was the ship destined to make earth's first contact with extraterrestrials, ushering in a new age of peace and prosperity.

But there was a price. The notorious Borg, determined to thwart Cochrane, travelled back in time to prevent this momentous flight. Enter the crew of the U.S.S. ENTERPRISE to battle the Borg and ensure Cochrane a successful launch so he could make that historic first contact and complete his, and humanity's, inaugural warp flight.

This is the story of the Phoenix, the ship that started it all. It can now be yours when you place your order for the sensational model portrayed in superb detail in the accompanying illustration.

What makes this precision sculpture all the more significant is that it is the creation of John Eaves, designer of the Phoenix space ship that appeared in the movie STAR TREK: First Contact. That same ship is now captured in an unprecedented first. John Eaves has hand- sculpted a pewter model of this famous ship, created from his original drawings. The booster rockets, main engine array, capsule, and nose are all selectively plated with 22 carat gold. The nacelles are not only selectively plated with 22 carat gold but are also enhanced with fiery red crystal cahochons. The ship is hand-burnished to a gleaming steel-like lustre and held by a sculpted die-cast arm attached to a handsome base, which is hand-signed by John Raves.

A fascinating voyage of imagination, fully authorised and authenticated by Paramount Pictures. Available exclusively from Franklin Mint at the attractive issue price of just 195, which is payable in convenient monthly instalments. Make first contact and take home a legend.

Yours sincerely, Stewart Resnick, Chairman.

P.S. Enter a new age of peace, prosperity and space travel. Become the proud owner of the Phoenix today!
