P-51 Mustang

American P-51 Mustang in flight

The P-51 Mustang was a single-seat fighter aircraft used on Earth, by the United States of America, during the Second World War. It was primarily used for bomber escort. It was well-armed, with six .50 caliber machine guns in its wings. (ENT: "Storm Front")

When attempting to land in San Francisco in an alternate timeline, Commander Tucker and Ensign Travis Mayweather were fired upon in their shuttlepod by three P-51s. (ENT: "Zero Hour", "Storm Front")

Background information Edit

The P-51 Mustangs in "Zero Hour" and "Storm Front" were computer-generated planes, digitally built by effects artist Koji Kuramura at Eden FX.

The 1944 sequences in "Zero Hour" were scripted to be set circa 1942, but the visual effects team discovered – after some research – that this type of airplane could not be used in that setting. "We realized there were no P-51 Mustangs in 1942 San Francisco," explained Eden FX staff member Robert Bonchune. "But there would have been P-39-Airacobras and P-38s." Executive producer Rick Berman decided to set the sequences two years later, so that the P-51s could be included. (Star Trek Magazine issue 118, p. 31)

For the month of April, in the Star Trek: Ships of the Line (2013) calendar, the painting "Time Bandits" by Alain Rivard depicted the moment when the shuttlepod was attacked by the Mustangs.
