From Star Trek: Discovery comes this all-new die-cast model of the U.S.S. Kerala starship. The Shepard-class Kerala was one of the starships that arrived to assist the U.S.S Shenzhou at the fateful Battle of the Binary Stars. Unlike several of her fellow ships, she managed to avoid being destroyed by Klingon torpedoes.
The ship was named after the state in south India where the country’s Institute of Space Science and Technology was based, while the Shepard-class was named in honor of the 20th-century astronaut Alan Shepard. The highly detailed U.S.S. Kerala (Shepard-class) model is 8.5 inches long and based directly on the original VFX models created for the show. The model is die-cast, hand-painted with intricate detail using references from CBS Studios's own archives of designs and CG models, and comes with its own display stand.
