|2 NX-class ships and an unidentified (alien) craft|
|Enterprise NX-01, United Earth's Starfleet|
|Independence NX-08, United Earth's Starfleet|
The last of the NX-class Warp-5 Starships, Independence was formerly a test vessel carrying out improvements and modifications at Earth spacedock. She was fully commissioned and brought into service at the end of the Earth-Romulan War, where she was used as a diplomatic cruiser and stellar cartography vessel.
Independence has the distinction of being a space trial vessel for new Starfleet equipment or procedures, meaning that command of the ship brings about it a level of non-conformity to other Starfleet vessels or United Earth institutions. As can be seen, in practice, through the crews use of trial uniforms and personal phaser weapons, added by the inclusion of several cases of Coalition Planet and Federation Interspecies Officer Exchange commissions into the ship's predominantly Human crew."
[the reference to the crew's uniform is due to my plans for playing 28mm skirmish games with miniatures sculpted wearing Star Trek: The Original Series uniforms - the ship models shown belonging to the chronologically earlier Star Trek: Enterprise.]

Excellent work Roy, I've always had a rather large soft spot for all things Star Trek, although I've never owned any figures for it myself, apart from some Star Trek action men when I was a kid. My little sod of a brother bit off Spock's nose, I never forgiven him!!
Great looking models though and I love the blurb on the Independence.
Now I've gotta admit I too am stumped for the points, but I'm gonna class the 2 larger ships as 28mm infantry (although they're clearly not) and award you 5 points for each model. With the smaller earning 3 points.
Making a total of 13 points!
