Starbase Olympia Report: Hot Wheels Enterprise D!

    I remember when Star Trek The Next Generation premiered in 1987.  It was a very exciting time to be a Trek fan.  We still had the original series and the movies and now a whole new chapter set 100 years after Kirk's era was beginning.  As a hardware fan my first concern was the design of the new Enterprise.   I wasn't disappointed.  It had all the basic design characteristics of the previous Enterprise; only larger and more graceful.  It really was a sight to behold.
     Thanks to Dan Foster we have a chance to look upon the Hot Wheels Enterprise D.  Hot Wheels certainly did an excellent job; it's a durable and highly detailed model/toy.  It certainly does credit to its screen counterpart.   I really need to get on the ball and start collecting these myself.  Thanks again to Dan  Foster for his contributions to the blog.

The Enterprise D was actually the only screen Enterprise to feature Saucer Separation
