The next XL Edition in the Star Trek Starships Collection is the Akira class U.S.S. Thunderchild NCC-63539, as first seen in the 1996 movie Star Trek: First Contact.
The Akira class entered Starfleet service in the latter half of the 24th century and was built in response to the urgent threats posed by both the Cardassian Wars and the Borg. This U.S.S Thunderchild NCC-63549 Starship is incredibly detailed capturing the modern style nacelle, a larger secondary hull between the nacelle struts and massive lengthways struts joining up with nacelle struts.
