A magnificent model of the U.S.S. Enterprise D primary hull or saucer section created by Industrial Light and Magic especially for the atmospheric entry and crash landing sequences on the planet Veridian III in the closing scenes of Star Trek: Generations (1994). This is the largest Starship filming model ever produced in the history of Star Trek, spanning a total length that is roughly 11” greater than the 11’ 2” Original Series Enterprise model on display at the Smithsonian.  This miniature was created with a functional internal lighting system; however, those components are presently untested and would likely require some degree of restoration or servicing to be rendered operational.   The saucer was mounted on a motion control model mover at ILM’s studios and filmed against a blue screen background to create the scenes of it hurdling through space, and was then filmed being propelled on a hidden track across a 40’ x 80’ miniature landscape set of Veridian III to capture its final descent through the lush and heavily forested terrain on that planet.  Truly an exquisite piece of Star Trek history that symbolizes the final moments of service of Captain Picard’s famous Galaxy Class starship.  This oversize lot requires special shipping arrangements to transport it from its current location in Las Vegas, NV. This unique filming miniature, which measures approx. 12’1” long by 9’10” tall by 11” wide, is fabricated primarily of wood with a fiberglass and resin outer shell and features an extraordinary level of artistic detail, including applied decals on the outside featuring the main hull pattern and detailed pin stripping. This item remains in excellent, screen used condition.
