Where many men have gone before…

It was @FrankDJS‘s fault for pointing it out in the first place…a guy walking through Canary Wharf with a model Starship Enterprise in a bag.

Geeky excitement rose in me like a hunger.

Five minutes later, I was in a newsagent’s, drooling over the “Part One in a Series of…” Star Trek models set. It was only £1.99 and it was the Enterprise D – how could I leave it there for that price?

I’m now home, having placed it on my desk and looked over every inch of its gorgeous detail, wondering how I’ll be able to sneak in all the other parts in the series without tipping off @FrankDJS.

To be honest, I think he’s already resigned to the fact that there are more Star Trek models on the way. He’s moved his collection of KLM houses from the bookshelf in the study.

Now that’s love. Am I right?

I’m already looking forward to the next model in the series… the original and best NCC-1701.

  1. Lovely! I like that it’s so small.

    I bought Brother a BIG one at the time TNG came out. He kept it for YEARS (sometimes hanging from the ceiling)…

    After 10 years of marriage, try started having kids.

    Broken, immediately.
