New Star Trek ships docking on retail shelves soon

It's been a while since we've seen a new release in the series, but DST finally has a fresh batch of Star Trek ships on the way from Art Asylum.

Get ready to boldly go with the first Starfleet ship in the line to not carry name Enterprise and a very cool looking Klingon Bird of Prey.
One of the most fan-requested Star Trek ships, the Excelsior-class U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B starship is finally on its way! Based on the ship's sole appearance, in Star Trek: Generations, the Enterprise-B features authentic sounds and dialogue from the film, as well as light-up weapons and engines. The ship measures 16 inches long and comes with a Starfleet-insignia display stand. 
The Klingon Bird of Prey, as seen in multiple feature films, is their first non-Enterprise ship in the line. This version is based on the unnamed ship commanded by Admiral Chang in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, which could fire while cloaked, and it features authentic sounds and dialogue from the film, as well as working lights. With its massive wingspan, the Bird of Prey measures 12.5 inches long by 19 inches wide, and the wings can move up for a landing approach or down for attack mode! Comes with a Klingon symbol display stand.
Both ships will be available by the end of the year and, even better if you missed a few of these, the rest of the line is being reissued right along side them. Expect to see the older craft releases staggered from now through the Spring of next year.
