I'm guessing the other Reliant model would be either 4186 or 4189. Although 4198 or 4168 are possible as well.

Don't worry, it took me a couple of seconds to figure it out too. Back in the day I would've known instantly, but my fictional starship identification powers are growing weak.

I'm pretty sure that Excelsior is NCC-2010.

And NCC-9481 is the USS Latrine, best possible reuse of the Reliant letters [Wink]

But seriously, to me it looks like a very short name, perhaps 4 or 5 letters.

(I wonder if that Excelsior is the Kongo that Okuda supposedly mentioned once.)

Update: I'm still waiting on the Curry kitbash. It's in a box somewhere in Dan Curry's storage unit, waiting to be unearthed. However, he's graciously asked me to keep seding him email reminders every couple of months or so, and I'm a patient guy. I have no doubt that we'll eventually see the model, but it'll be some time.

However, I did find a few more interesting on-topic things in the meantime:

The remains of the U.S.S. Chekov.

The remains of one Excelsior study model (lower nacelles are missing).

Possible concept art of the Titan from Nemesis, drawn by Rick "Sterngazer" Sternbach (although crudely drawn, I like it better than Sean Torangeau's version).

Chekov - Wreckage, nuff said

Excelsior Study Model - Great! I so do love those study models, it's a shame that were never used for more than space trash in Qualor II. I find it disconcerting to see that this particular model lost its two bottom nacelles, as it was my favorite design of the bunch.

Titan concept art - This seems dubious to me, from its silly name to its sillier design.

well that Chkov pic looks very much like this enough to make me think that pic will we ever see of the actual ship before... being chewed up.... pretty fucking sick when you think about it...

Dukky, was that piece actually filmed?

I really hope they did not chop up the actual Chekov to make that small piece!

That Sternbach spatula has got to be a gag- what possible use would there be in that configuration?

I may be the only person tat loves the Excelsior study models! Thanks for those pics- I needd to get back to modeling and build my own!

The piece of Chekov wreckage was Mike Okuda's. I believe the rest of the model was what was filmed, and he kept this piece for himself. Sadly, it's probably all that remains of the model.

Yeah, I can't think of an Enterprise in recent memory that I actually liked.

1. Enterprise-D - loved it.
2. Enterprise-E - hated it.
3. Enterprise NX-01 - hated it.
4. nuEnterprise - hated it.
5. Enterprise-F (from ST Online) - hate it.

(I did like the Enterprise-J though, but since we never actually saw the exterior of the ship in an episode it doesn't count)
