First up, the next oversized special issue in the series will also be the first non-canon design featured, Doug Drexler's Enterprise NX-01 refit. The smaller regular NX-01, released waaay back as issue four in the series, remains one of best models in the entire run, and it doesn't look like this larger version is going to be any less impressive. Series manager Ben Robinson shared these photos on Twitter, including one with a hand for scale:
Also shared by Ben on Twitter, is the first look at the Breen warship, which is on the way next year, as issue sixty-nine.
More official photos have also been distributed for four issues in the series. Issue sixty-three, which will be the first 2016 release in the series (in the UK at least), will be the Antares, based on the design seen in the remastered version of Charlie X, which itself is a variant of a design first seen in The Animated Series. This is the first ever model of this ship.
Following a couple of weeks later, issue sixty-four is one of the most important ships in Earth history, Zefram Cochrane's Phoenix. This is the only issue in this batch that has also had a preliminary cover design distributed.
Issue sixty-five is the Xindi Aquatic ship, the second Xindi ship in the series, following from the very impressive Xindi Insectoid model (issue twenty-four). This is almost the first model of this ship, a smaller version has been released as part of the Attack Wing miniatures game, although so far only available as an event prize, so this larger version will be the first widely available model.
Then we have the SS Raven, Seven of Nine's parent's ship, which will be coming as issue sixty-six.
Looking a bit further ahead, on Twitter Ben has fielded a couple of questions about ships in forthcoming Star Trek productions. When asked about the possibility of ships from Star Trek Beyond he had this to say:
I'd say the answer is yes. But of course I can't tell you anything about those ships.He also mentioned such ships would be special issues. When asked about ships from the new TV series, he seemed to suggest Eaglemoss are certainly interested:
Let's say we've asked.Finally, from both the far future, and the recent past, the most recently released issue in the series is the 29th century timeship USS Relativity. Here's a new picture of the model from above, care of Eaglemoss's online shop.
