As they both share a futuristic bend, it’s no surprise that the realms of Star Trek and 3D printing collide. Quite often. From the technology being used in fan tributes to a contest based on the famous Replicator, it would seem that the relationship has only begun. And if you’ve ever spoken to a serious movie fan—or gamer—about their figurine collections, or if you are one yourself, then you are well aware this is serious business and no passing fad.

Replicas and figurines thrill fans of all ages, and the team at Eucl3D  is certainly quite aware of this. As the San Francisco-headquartered company continues to work steadily in thrilling gamers eager to hold on to their experiences through 3D printed models, they’ve provided enthusiasts with everything from new modeling software to partnerships allowing for 3D printing of spaceships from other games such as Elite Dangerous.

ed5a731e12abaf4b2b4abb14114c771e1472699476Founded by three UC Berkeley alumni, Jesse Manek, Brian Graf, and Brian Bordley, Eucl3D is centered around ‘bringing games to life,’ and was initially inspired when the team of lifelong gamers discovered they were at a loss to find quality collectibles within the marketplace. Now they’ve entered into another partnership which should expand their customer base significantly, as well as making gaming a recreational endeavor that is further fulfilling. In working with Star Trek Online, a platform that began over six years ago, Eucl3D will now allow fans a way to not only 3D print their own starships from the game—but they can customize them extensively too.

Marking a new partnership with Cryptic Studios, Perfect World, and CBS, now users—or excuse me, Captains—will be able to print ships from Eucl3D with a range of customizations varying from materials overall to that of shields, choices in color, and even the option to choose a personalized ship name with its own registry. The Star Trek Online game allows for more than 400 ships, so this certainly means unlimited fun and creativity in 3D printing and collecting for all of the Captains out there interested in keeping some pretty major mementos from their gaming experiences.

The Star Trek Online team points out that in the countless hours their Captains have been flying ships, they’ve seen peace and they’ve seen war. They’ve journeyed through the game bonding with fleetmates and becoming one with their gaming ships.

“Captains take pride in the way their ship performs as well as how it looks, and put in a lot of work to get the gear they need to get the output and the appearance they think perfects their adventure,” Stephen Ricossa, Executive Producer of Star Trek Online, said in a recent announcement. “The STO team understands that fact, and has been working hard to provide our captains with an opportunity to truly capture that invaluable crew member in a more permanent way.”

Whether creating just one ship in 3D print or even an entire fleet, gamers can look forward to color models that are fabricated in the US and then shipped directly to doorsteps all over the world. Also stating that these models look ‘absolutely incredible,’ Ricossa invites all of the Captains to keep their ‘hailing frequencies open,’ as prices and further details on availability are to be released soon.
