Designed by Andrew Probert, who updated the original 1960s Enterprise for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, this saucer was constructed by model maker Greg Jein as the miniature that debuted at the start of the third season. The saucer is made of fiberglass and is glued to a cardboard base created to raise the saucer above a light source. The base has been scored with a knife, allowing it to bend to the shape of the saucer and includes foam core triangle supports joining the two units. The surface displays numerous windows painted faux silver or cut out to allow light from an internal source to shine through. Adhered to the surface of the miniature is “NCC-1701-D.” Select lettering has faded over time. The model is painted a light grey color with small portions that are white or faux gold.
The piece shows wear to the paint and fiberglass due to production use and age but remains overall in fair condition.
