For those of you who've seen the movie "Galaxy Quest", you know it is a terrific spoof of the Star Trek phenomenon, Trekkies, and some of the unique personalities within the original cast. If you haven't seen the movie, go rent or buy it! Whether you like Star Trek or not, Tim Allen is his usual hysterical self and is good for some serious laughter.

Of course the movie couldn't use the name Star Trek nor replicate the starship Enterprise, so the ship in this adventure is the NSEA Protector. It too has similar interesting technologies as well as outrageous obstacles depicted in the movie.

I couldn't believe that Pegasus Hobbies was really going to produce a kit of the Galaxy Quest NSEA Protector, but here it is! I'm feeling the urge to stop writing and rerun the movie yet again...

The kit is molded in gray styrene and presented on four parts trees, plus two hull halves and the display base. A tree of transparent blue styrene parts is also provided for the engine lenses.

The kit is designed as a snap-tite kit so modelers of just about any age can tackle this fun kit. The kit includes a nice display base with a pivoting ball to allow the model to be posed in various attitudes.

While this kit will look fine unpainted, the kit comes with a nice set of decals which means you'll want to put some paint on the model to replicate the movie colors. The instructions provide a four-view drawing showing paint colors and decal placement.

Take your time and have some with this build-up as you won't ever find any studio models of this ship, all you've got are the CGI (digital) models you can see the next time you play the movie.

Congratulations to Pegasus Hobbies for producing this unique model and there is also a companion kit released at the same time containing full-scale replicas of the pistol and communicator.

Definitely recommended!

My sincere thanks to Pegasus Hobbies for this review sample!
