Star Trek Enterprise NCC 1701-C Coffee Table

I would not have thought, if you had just described it to me in words, that an Enterprise-shaped coffee table could be “classy,” but I believe Etsy seller Barry Shields has done it. It’s sold already, of course, but I bet he’ll be making more. [via Dude Craft]

      1. I’m sure he chose the C because on the C the engine nacelles are roughly level with the saucer.

        On Enterprise D the nacelles are significantly below the plane of the saucer, and wouldn’t really work as a table.

      2. NNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. これ、お好きな人は「いいね」でしょうが、知らない人には、なんの形なのかも分からないかも。

    私はちょっとだけお好きな人です。
    こんなコーヒーテーブルがあったら、ちょっとテンション上がると思います。

    1. I’d bet considerable sums he’s technically violated their IP with this. But I’m also betting that neither he, nor they, really cares, and neither ever will unless he starts churning them out by the dozen. If he were a company in business selling Enterprise tables, it might make sense to get all lawyer-y, but a lone fan / craftsperson making these by hand? Suing such people is lousy PR.

  2. my name is Barry Shields and I want to thank everyone for all the great comments and to let you know that Rod Roddenberry and George Takei commented on how impressed they were and congratulated me on it and they posted it on their facebook pages. Once again thanks.
