This Galaxy Class model represents the USS Odyssey, one of the first Starfleet ships to fall at the hands of the Dominion. Commanded by Captain Keogh, it was destroyed in a battle with Jem' Hadar Fighters. The Odyssey exploded as a result of the damage inflicted during a Kamikaze run by one of the Jem' Hadar ships.

This model was built with no modifications. The base coat is Flat Gull Gray spray paint. The remainder of the model was hand painted.  The phaser banks are Medium Gray. The escape pod hatches are Sand.

The decals are from the Enterprise-D kit, but the markings specific to the Odyssey are from a set from Web Games.

   
The windows are either Gloss White or Gloss Black. The main Deflector is Flat White with Flat Red. The Bussard collectors are Gloss Red painted on the outside of the caps. RCS Thrusters are Gloss Yellow. Mat Sky Blue was painted on the inside of the clear plastic Warp grilles.
   

The dedication plaque bore a quote from the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey" regarding the monolith. The ship itself was named for the Apollo 13 Command Module.
