Coming in at 685 meters long and 24 decks. The Sovereign class was one of the first new Starfleet vessels to be more of a warship than exploration. With 12 Phaser banks which would remodulat and 5 Torpedo launchers which fired the new Quantum Torpedo's. The new Enterprise was designed to fight the Borg. It would get a refit and get even more weapons.
The computer systems were some of the most complex in the Federation. Utilizing bio-neural circuitry. It was also different than earlier Enterprise Galaxy class in that this vessel carried no civilian families. Starfleet had finally come to their senses and realized that a Starfleet vessel was not a liner.
The model is really nice. The detail on these models is always good but this one really stands out. Its crisp, and sharp and the nacelles have a clear but really nice blue incorporated into it. It feels pretty sturdy but the one tricky part is the stand. It does hold the ship but the ship slides in at the nacelle struts and its not a lot for the stand to grab hold of. So be a bit careful there.
