Starships Collection's Stargazer, Vor'cha, nuEnterprise, and Canadian launch

Online retailers have added listings for a couple more issues of The Official Starships Collection, giving us the first look at the Constellation class USS Stargazer, and the Klingon Vor'cha class, which will be issues nineteen and twenty, due in April/May in the UK, and June/July in the US.



Both issues will next be showing up in Canada it seems, as Eaglemoss have now got a site up ready for the Canadian launch. They don't yet specify a date, other than early-2014. The first issue will be C$6.95, going up to C$24.95 per issue after. The subscription model will be the same as the US, with the subscription extras spread out over the first eighteen months.

Eaglemoss have also emailed out recently, to promote their second larger special issue, the nuTrek USS Enterprise, revealing the cover for this issue:


StarTrek.com also recently ran an article from The Collection's editor, Ben Robinson, in which he shared some of the nuTrek concept art he has been looking through to put together the magazine for this issue. Specifically he posted many variations from Alex Jaeger, trying out options for how to articulate the Enterprise's warp nacelles at warp. I've put a few after the jump, but you can see the whole range of options considered, on StarTrek.com.


PS. For a listing of all the ships in the Starships Collection, including links to all my previous previews and reviews, see my index page.

Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!

I preordered within seconds of seeing this!

Yeah, I'm a little excited. I picked up the Romulan Warbird and the Klingon Battle Cruiser from a local comic shop a couple of days ago, and I was blown away by the quality. It's basically "shut up and take my money!" at this point.

I was expecting $25 CDN. I'm totally in!

Eaglemoss sent out a mass email about the nuTrek Enterprise Special? I'm a subscriber and I haven't seen any emails about it.

Considering how ugly it looked on screen, that Constellation-class is actually pretty nice.

Warren, the email I got also confirmed I had opted in to get the special issues. So I would guess if you're a subscriber too you should have got an email. There is an email list subscription box somewhere on The Collection's website if you're not getting them.

Cube, I agree, never really loved the Constellation, but the model looks kind of nice.
