Star Trek Official Starships Collection Cardassian Orbital Weapons Platform Bonus Edition from Eaglemoss.
Brand new boxed model with magazine. 7cm across.
The Cardassian Orbital Weapons Platform was a powerful, unmanned planetary defence system designed to be deployed in orbit around tactically important planets. The platform consists of six arms around a central ring - three longer arms below the ring and three shorter ones above. Each platform carried a thousand plasma torpedoes capable of taking down a starship.
This Cardassian Orbital Weapons Platform carefully recreates the starship as seen in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Tears of the Prophets". The model shows the platform in the active mode with the arms opened up forming a roughly 45-degree angle with the ring.
Inside the magazine is an in-depth profile of the Cardassian Orbital Weapons Platform looking at the origins of its design, plus we take a look at an arsenal of hidden weapons created for Deep Space 9.
