Star Trek Online teams up with Mixed Dimensions for 3D printed ships (again)

This is a hill one could die upon.
It’s been about a year and a half since Star Trek Online first announced that it would be offering 3D printed versions of player ships for players to buy, thus offering you the chance to immortalize your adventures in Starfleet as Captain John Startrek with your own miniature USS Dicksmash. (That is a real name from the game.) Unfortunately, that hope got dashed when the company that was supposed to handle the printing unexpectedly folded.

But there’s a third-act positive twist! The company has partnered up again with Mixed Dimensions, and custom-printed ships are back on the table, so you can once more look forward to your very own USS Dicksmash. You can check out a sample gallery just below, or you can keep your eyes peeled for a livestream discussion on the new merch at 6:00 p.m. EST. Obviously, the game doesn’t have the best track record with these plans at the moment, but the effort is being made once more!

Why Star Citizen hasn’t done this yet is anybody’s guess. They make a killing selling intangible goods. Just imagine the $$ they’d make selling 3D printed versions of their ships.

Because at their price points you’d probably have to mortgage your house to get one I would think.

Eliot, don’t lie good Sir, that ship name is your ship name, right, right? :P

I’m not even that much of a ST fan but twenty years ago just the idea would have the dollhouse everything-tiny-is-cool girl in me squeal in glee.

Twenty years ago, though…

Well, I hope it works out this time. The last one fell through.

Kirk and Picard were Enterprising. Janeway was Voyaging. I do not wish to meet the captain of the USS Dicksmash.

*screaming externally*

No BS, no irony. I’m excited for this.
