The Phoenix was recognized as the first warp-capable ship to be built by humankind. It was designed and constructed in the middle of the 21st century by a team of engineers led by Dr. Zefram Cochrane and Lily Sloane. The ship was initially a United States Air Force nuclear missile with a titanium casing. The first flight of the Phoenix attracted the attention of a passing Vulcan ship, the T’Plana-Hath, causing the Vulcans to decide to make first open contact with Humans, an event which was celebrated as First Contact Day.
This model is die-cast, hand-painted, and comes with an in-depth magazine featuring product artwork and highlighting the ship’s history and design.
