Why the Bajoran sail ship? I don't think there's a fan anywhere who wanted a model of that ship. Is it filler so they can stretch out the good ships? Maybe I'm wrong, does anyone not subscribed plan on getting this issue?

Of course some ships are designed as fillers. But I know another company made a Bajoran sail ship (not as detailed as the EM will be), so obviously somebody must be keen on it. A few other sites I'm checking regarding EM releases don't seem to have any complaints about it. But who's been pining for a Krenim time ship? Personally, I think the Cardassian and Ferengi ships are the ugliest so far, but so what? That's the nature of collections. They can't all be personal favs.

I've actually been looking forward to the Bajoran sail ship and the Krenim time ship, not because I particularly like their designs (I don't), but for the novelty of seeing them realised as models. There have been so many Enterprise Ds over the years, I'm really excited for the more obscure ships.

The Bajoran Solar Sailor was the focus of a whole episode, and a rare look at an ancient starship design, and unique in all of Star Trek with the sail design (pretty rare even in wider sci-fi), so I'd say it's got a fair amount going for it, even if it's not as sexy as some of the more familiar ships.

If the series continues for a long time, I feel the filler will be when we get the various flying box freighter ships...

I'm really excited about the Krenim time ship as it's from one of my favourite stories from the whole Star Trek universe. It's a more unusual model for them to do which makes it more interesting for me.
Another ship I really hope they make into a model is the Botany Bay even though it's kinda crappy looking it's who it is associated with that makes it appealing for me.
