Has anyone ever built a unit of Pakleds (from ST: TNG and maybe later appearances in followup series)? They were memorable foes in the one show I've seen with them ("Samaritan Snare") -- space dummies, not the ordinary antagonists, which makes them strangely attractive as comic villains.

Searches here produce no results at all, but does anyone know of Pakled minis being made and sold, or any figures that could be modified or painted as Pakleds? 25/28mm scale.

What fun to put these guys on the tabletop and confound their enemies.

No one would make Pakled ships. They do not go.

Yeah, I liked them too.

Best Star Trek race ever.

The Pakleds would use any old ships bought, traded for, or purloined from other dim-witted species, or what was given to them by those (Ferengi? Romulans?) with self-interests, o seeking to stir up trouble in some way.

So ships aren't a problem, but Pakled crew, where to get them?

…what was given to them by those (Ferengi? Romulans?) with self-interests, o seeking to stir up trouble in some way.

The Pakleds were 'unknown', so one assumes the ships unrecognizable. All the better, as there are so many not-ST ships to choose from… ;->=

As I assume the faces could be done with just paint, I'm thinkng crew figures would come as some 'roly-poly' body types. I know I've seen some, but not placing them.

Shapeways has one:

It's a small model but that's fitting, as the Mondor was probably about 80m in length.

Plus that ship was used for about 6 other Star Trek background ships, so you could reuse it:

2. Acamarian Gatherer ship (TNG: "The Vengeance Factor")

3. Cardassian supply ship (TNG: "The Wounded")

4. "Trill" ship (TNG: "The Host")

5. Satarran ship (TNG: "Conundrum")

6. Kostolain ship (TNG: "Cost of Living")

7. Rigelian freighter (DS9: "Vortex")
