Star Trek Discovery Starships Collection #3 USS Kerala NCC-1255 Shepard Class. Boxed model and magazine. Approx 21.5cm long.
The Shepard-class Kerala was one of the starships that arrived to assist the U.S.S Shenzhou at the fateful Battle of the Binary Stars. Unlike several of her fellowships, she managed to avoid being destroyed by Klingon torpedoes.
The ship was named after the state in south India where the country’s Institute of Space Science and Technology was based, while the Shepard-class was named in honour of the 20th-century astronaut Alan Shepard.
The highly detailed U.S.S. Kerala (Shepard Class) model is 21.5cm long and based directly on the original VFX models created for the show. It comes complete with a magazine that profiles the ship and explores the inside story of how it was made.
