Today, Cryptic Studios announced 3D starship printing is now available for Star Trek Online. In a partnership with San Francisco-based integral reality company, Mixed Dimensions, Star Trek Online now offers players the chance to log into the PC version of the game and order a custom 3D-printed model of their favorite in-game ships. These handcrafted resin starship collectibles can be delivered almost anywhere around the world and base pricing will begin at $200, depending on size and customization options.
Officially licensed by CBS, Star Trek Online is the only free-to-play MMORPG that allows players to become a captain and explore the iconic Star Trek universe from within. The game currently offers more than 500 starships hailing from the United Federation of Planets, Klingon Defense Force and Romulan Empire factions, many of which are captured directly from the franchise’s most popular films and televisions shows. Star Trek Online’s signature ship editor gives captains numerous options to customize their own starships, allowing them to select their own ship names and registry numbers, choose from a variety of colors and shield skins, plus add entire ship sections like nacelles and saucers.
Starting today, Star Trek Online players can bring these starships to life, with the help of Mixed Dimensions’ new GamePrint technology, which combines the company’s proprietary 3D printing solution with the hand craftsmanship from a team of master artists. After customizing their ships in the PC version of Star Trek Online, players will discover an option to upload their ship design directly to the GamePrint website. From there, they will be able to select from three different purchase options:
Base Price: $350
Captains can commission one of the company’s master artists to hand-paint a premium, full-colored resin model of their starship, which includes detailed shading. Exceptional artistry and focus is placed on each individual ship.
Single Color Version
Base Price: $225
Players can order a 3D-printed model of their starship, painted in either gold, silver, bronze or black. The model is polished, finished and ready for display.
Base price: $200
Model painters and hobbyists can order a primed model of their favorite starship, coated in a base layer of primer and ready to be painted.
*Please note that costs for all three options may vary according to ship size and customizations. All starships will be delivered in customized packaging and include an exclusive Star Trek Online-branded display stand.
Since every customized starship is individually crafted and hand-painted, these ships will only be created in batches of 100 units at a time. When players place their order with Mixed Dimensions, they will be notified of the estimated time it will take to create and deliver their starship. In addition, captains will also receive photo updates of their ships in real time, notifying them when their collectibles have been printed and painted. Certain starships will be unavailable for this program. For a full list of ships excluded from 3D printing, please visit Star Trek Online’s blog.
For those who don’t have access to the PC version of Star Trek Online, Mixed Dimensions will be offering completed models, replicating 20 of the game’s most popular starships. These hand-painted starship collectibles will be available soon.
Shipping is available in most of North America, the European Union, Australia, Brazil and several other territories. For a list of countries where shipping is unavailable due to international restrictions, please visit Mixed Dimensions’ FAQ section. In addition, customers who place orders outside of the United States may be responsible for taxes and/or dues required by law within their territory.
To celebrate the launch of Star Trek Online’s starship collectibles, Mixed Dimensions will offer introductory pricing for a limited time. Please visit www.mixeddimensions.com for additional details.
