Purity: A3370 Star Trek Kelvin Review

There was one more Star Trek small scale ship that I missed out on in the first set of reviews.  Here it is.

Package.  MSRP is $4.99.  Which gives us a Price per Piece of $0.15.  Not good.

Instructions and stickers.

Parts 1.  Hey, another light brick I will never use!
I've always liked the Trans-Blue Kre-O pieces.

Parts 2.  Another giant base I will
have to find a use for in the future.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  The set, as built to the instructions, falls inside the Cruiser length limit for IO.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Above.  (-10) (The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Yes, but not very many.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  No.  (-5)
Score: B- (-5).  Like all of the small scale Star Trek ship sets, this one gets hamstrung by the cost
