|This could be another vessel from the age of Earth's early space exploration.
The model of the Malcorian warp ship could be seen in Ensign Picard's quarters in TNG: "Tapestry". Evidently Picard's miniature can't be the Malcorian ship, as it is decades before the first attempt of first contact with that civilization. So the similarity must be coincidental. We may conveniently suppose it's another early Earth ship, probably without warp propulsion as there are no obvious warp engines.
