Michael Okuda got back to me! He does believe he used something from robotix. SO, having looked at all of the canopies from robotix I could find, I am starting to wonder if it was NOT a canopy, but another part.

Possibly. Perhaps Ed Miarecki needs to be also contacted - I believe he actually built the ships. I wonder if anyone knows how to get in touch with him...?

According to Rick, Mike and Rick Started then Ed finished them. I've looked for Ed (similarly to how I was able to contact Mike and Rick) but have yet to find him...

If only there was a new image of the UNDERSIDE of the Chekov! I'd love to get a closer look at that pod/engineering hull.

well after a few more correspondence with Michael Okuda he Does believe that Robotix is what they used. He even suggests it was the R-2000 set.

I had this set as a kid. Not to go against the revered M. Okuda, but there's no way that part came from a R-2000 robotix set. Unfortunately. :(

I feel the same, Rick Sternbach did mention they had other toys around too but doesn't really remember what was used. Ed Miarecki really would be the one who might know as he took over from Mike and Rick. But he is not as easily found. I am asking people I know if they have any clue what the piece is. With this coned in view. But will keep searching toys from 1987 and before.
