Do you have a favorite ship in Star Trek Online? The one that’s always carried you through, no matter how tough the fight? The one that you’ve lovingly built and rebuilt again and again, chasing that perfect set up, and just the right colors? The ship that you proudly call your home among the stars? We’re happy to announce that, starting today, Captains all over the world can begin the process of bringing that ship to life. You’ll be able to order a 3D printed, high quality collectible of your ship to keep with you at work, at home, or wherever you want to see the ship you love.

Here’s how it works: Ready the starship you want printed, and head to the ship tailor. You’ll find a brand new button that reads, “3D Print This Ship.” Clicking on this will bring you to the option to learn more about this process, or to print this ship. Once you’ve chosen to print the ship, it’ll upload directly to our partner, Mixed Dimensions. You’ll be able to pick from three different options:
  • Collectible Version
    Base Price: $350
    Captains can commission one of the company’s master artists to hand-paint a premium, full-colored resin model of their starship, which includes detailed shading. Exceptional artistry and focus is placed on each individual ship.
  • Single Color Version
    Base Price: $225
    Captains can order a 3D-printed model of their starship, painted in either gold, silver, bronze or black. The model is polished, finished and ready for display.
  • Primer Version
    Base price: $200
    Model painters and hobbyists can order a primed model of their favorite starship, coated in a base layer of primer and ready to be painted.
*Please note that costs for all three options may vary according to ship size and customizations. A stand will be included with every order and all ships will be delivered in customized packaging.

To celebrate the launch of Star Trek Online’s starship collectibles, Mixed Dimensions will offer introductory pricing for a limited time. Please visit http://www.gameprint.net/startrek for additional details.

Interested in more information on the process? We’ll be holding an AMA on our Official Forums and the Star Trek Online subreddit to answer your questions on Friday, March 16th at 10am PT.

Since every customized starship is individually crafted and hand-painted, these ships will only be created in batches of 100 units at a time. When players place their order with Mixed Dimensions, they will be notified of the estimated time it will take to create and deliver their starship. In addition, captains will also receive photo updates of their ships in real time, notifying them when their collectibles have been printed and painted.

For those who don’t have access to the PC version of Star Trek Online, Mixed Dimensions will be offering completed models, replicating 20 of the game’s most popular starships. These hand-painted starship collectibles will be available soon.

There is a small selection of ships that will not be offered as 3D Prints. Those ships are:
  • Crossfield-class Science Vanguard
  • Walker-class Light Exploration Cruiser
  • Sarcophagus Dreadnought Carrier
  • Vesta-class Multi-Mission Surveillance Explorer
  • Herald Baltim Raider
  • Herald Quas Flight Deck Cruiser
  • Herald Vonph Dreadnought Carrier
  • Na'kuhl Acheros Battlecruiser
  • Na'kuhl Daemosh Science Vessel
  • Na'kuhl Tadaari Raider
  • Sphere Builder Arehbes Destroyer
  • Sphere Builder Denuos Dreadnought Carrier
  • Sphere Builder Edoulg Science Vessel
  • Tholian Tarantula Dreadnought Cruiser
  • Son'a Collector Science Dreadnought
  • Jupiter-class Carrier
  • Delta-class Shuttle

In addition, the following starship parts are not available to print:
  • Risian Luxury Cruiser
    Atrium: Forest, Islands
  • Starfleet Multi-Mission Science Vessels
    Saucer: Vesta
    Hull: Vesta, Rademaker, Brigid
    Nacelles: Vesta
    Stanchions: Vesta
  • Starfleet Research Science Vessels
    Saucer: Horizon
With our huge selection of ships and the complex export process involved, players may find that printing is disabled for other ships. If you are unable to print a ship that is not on the above list, please let us know on our official forums. That maybe a technical issue we can resolve in the future. Please also note: Captains who use Lighting 1.0 will not be able to 3D print a ship at this time. If you are able to switch to 2.0 long enough to export the ship, you will still be able to.

Shipping is available in most of North America, Europe, Australia and several other territories. For a list of countries where shipping is unavailable due to international restrictions, please visit the FAQ section of the Mixed Dimensions website. In addition, customers who place orders outside of the United States may be responsible for taxes and/or dues required by law within their territory.

We can’t wait for you all to get the chance to own a high quality collectible of the ships that have carried you through eight years of Star Trek Online. We’ll see you in game.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MATERIALS USED FOR MANUFACTURING THE 3D MODELS MAKE THE 3D MODELS SUITABLE ONLY FOR DECORATIVE PURPOSES AND THEY ARE NOT SUITED FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE. THE 3D MODELS ARE NOT SUITED TO BE USED AS TOYS, OR TO BE GIVEN TO CHILDREN. THE 3D MODELS SHOULD NOT COME IN CONTACT WITH ELECTRICITY OR FOOD OR LIQUIDS AND SHOULD BE KEPT AWAY FROM HEAT.

"Let me tell you something. Don't. Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you, don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there, you can make a difference." - Kirk to Picard, Star Trek Generations
