Hot Wheels Star Trek: Reliant

This ship is a little obscure if you're not a fan. The Reliant is the ship commandeered by Khan in the second Star Trek film. It was actually a little less advanced than the Enterprise, but in Khan's hands it was a deadly weapon.

Once again, this comes with a Federation base. I like the base, but it clearly works better with ships where the engines are above the craft, rather than below. The Reliant sits incredibly close to the ground, which hurts the effect.

This is the "battle-damaged" variant, which was apparently less sought after, as National Wholesale Liquidators has these for just five bucks.

The battle damage is mainly evident on the rear engine. It looks pretty good, though they probably should have used a little less paint to create the effect.
