Re: Star Trek magazine Movie Issue question

, are you aware that the Daily Mirror GAVE AWAY the movie special the day the film came out with their newspaper? I think a coupon had to be redeemed at selected outlets.

I was soooooo mad when I saw that.
Believe you me, I know all about the Sunday Mirror special. It WASN'T the movie souvenir issue at all - it was a specially created 16 page special that featured some of the interviews I did with the cast in the period leading up to the movie. Chris, Simon and Leonard's interviews were slightly updated and were completely relaid out by designer Dan Bura with photos from the movie - but they were NOT the interviews contained in the special. We were hardly going to let a 2 newspaper give away a 5 magazine!!!

There was no coupon - it was a giveaway with the paper. It did achieve the accolade of highest selling Star Trek magazine certainly in the UK - 1.6 million copies!
