There are no Star Trek fanatics like science geek Trekkers, and a couple in Japan have created what we think is the tiniest model of the starship Enterprise ever, above.
How tiny? Try 8.8 microns. That's about the size of a human red blood cell.
Here's what Screenrant said:
Back in 2003, Takayuki Hoshino and Shinji Matsui of the Himeji Institute of Technology in Japan created a one-of-a-kind scale model of the Star Trek Starship Enterprise NCC-1701D.
What made the model so unique? It was made of phenanthrene gas and it was exactly 8.8 microns long.
For a sense of scale, one micron is 1,000th of a millimeter.
How cool is that? Only question is, how do you display it?
