Factory Entertainment has announced that it will unveil a major new product line, “FE Masterworks,” launching with three “Star Trek” ship models. The products will be unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con on July 19. 

“FE Masterworks” is a line of studio-quality spaceships and vehicles with accurate lights, sounds and detailing. 

Each fully licensed “FE Masterworks” product is hand-built in the U.S. by veteran modelmakers with extensive experience building models for major motion pictures and theme park companies. Each is constructed using authentic film production techniques and materials to render a final product suitable for actual film use. 

Headlining the FE Masterworks debut at Comic-Con are three “Star Trek” starships created under license from Paramount Consumer Products:  

• The U.S.S. Enterprise, as seen in “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” and “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” 

• The U.S.S. Enterprise-D, featured throughout “Star Trek: The Next Generation” 

• The U.S.S. Excelsior, as seen in “Star Trek III: The Search For Spock” and “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” 

A fourth Star Trek ship will make its debut later this summer. 

“With modern CGI greatly diminishing the use of filming models in new motion pictures, fans of classic science fiction have come to appreciate even more the artisanship of the craftsmen who built the detailed miniatures used in classic iterations of ‘Star Trek’ and other iconic science fiction films and TV series,” says Jordan Schwartz, president, chief executive officer, Factory Entertainment. “The ‘FE Masterworks’ program is dedicated to preserving the art of building filming models and gives the talented artisans who honed their skills on some of the classic models a chance to again practice their craft, this time for the benefit of the most serious collectors who want to own not just a movie prop replica, but a true work of art.”
