The original flight trainer, merely described as "five small SHIPS of the Nova Squadron" in scene 18 of the {{st-minutiae|resources/scripts/219.txt|script}}, and simply referred to as a "Trainer craft" by its designer, was designed and signed off on in January 1992 by Senior Illustrator [[Rick Sternbach]].

A copy of the model, made by Jein for Sternbach and painted and detailed by the latter, along with five of Sternbach's sketches of the design, was later offered as {{stala|P014-0298|Lot 298}} in the ''[[The Ultimate Sci-Fi Auction]]'' of 26 April 2003, estimated at US$800-$1,200, where it sold for US$900.
