Starships Collection's Antares, Botany Bay, and Saber class

Due out early next year, issue sixty-three of Eaglemoss' The Official Starships Collection will be the Antares. This is a doubly notable addition to the series, as it will be both the first original design from TOS remastered featured, and in a way the first design from TAS too, as the remastered ship is modified version of the cargo drone seen in the animated series. Series manager Ben Robinson has now posted the first image of this model on Twitter, check it out:


Ben has also posted new photos of a couple more ships recently, continue below to check out the SS Botany Bay and Saber class:

The Botany Bay will be coming as issue sixty in the series. When Ben posted these images he noted the final version will be darker:



The Saber class, USS Yeager, is due even sooner, as issue fifty-six.




Ben often posts previews from all the series he works on, and is very chatty with fans and Star Trek creators, so if you don't already, he's well worth giving a follow on Twitter. He also recently appeared on TrekFM's Commentary Trek Stars podcast, making use of his exhaustive knowledge and rich history of interactions with Star Trek creators to fill in some of the details of Maurice Hurley's work on early TNG; definitely worth a listen to hear all about the big Borg arc that could have been.

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