Since the craft was powered by sub-light ion engines, crewmembers were required to spend their multi-year journeys in suspended animation. The craft, designed by Star Trek's art director Matt Jefferies, was one of the few custom miniatures created for the budget-strapped Original Series.
The same model was subsequently used as the ill-fated "automated ore carrier" in the second season episode, The Ultimate Computer. NOTE TO PURCHASER: This is a Resin Model Kit and requires model building and painting skills. Many parts may require prep, sanding, fitting and some scratch building.
