Micro starbases

In these scenes of Federation starbases from the Star Trek universe, Lego Hacker set himself the challenge of conveying recognizable structures with the fewest possible bricks.

Some of these "micros" are made with only three or four pieces.

Shown here are Miranda, Freedom, Akira, Excelsior, and Constitution refit ships surrounding Starbase 357, Jupiter Station, and the Utopia Planitia shipyards above the Martian surface.

We have engaged the (mini)Borg

Here the challenge was to re-create familiar starships from the Lego universe at a small scale.
In this view a Galaxy and Sovereign class face off against a Borg cube.

Lego Star Trek: Sabre Class starship

This Lego version of an esoteric Star Trek vessel called the Sabre Class is not an act of creative misuse per se, but a custom build based on Star Trek schematics and renderings.

Juxtaposed here is the Lego model along with official images of the original ship. Of course, the Lego version is taller, so you can fit minifigures inside.

Lego Hacker made this at age 11, and his sister helped with the rendering in Photoshop.
