This is SO amazing! I can draw orthographic drawings of the weapon…but I’d never be able to bring it to life. It may be too time intensive/expensive…you have done the best TAS cosplay I have ever seen and I doff my cap to you!
Adafruit struck up a conversation with Aaron and offered to produce the models as a one-off (Adafruit isn’t in the production business for projects, they only wish to teach others to learn to make things).

Soon Adafruit hopes to get together with Aaron via video chat to discuss The Animated Series and shared passions for it. Stay Tuned!
Bonus – the cat-like species Kzinti recently appeared in the new Star Trek: Lower Decks animated series to coach Boimler on posture.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
