Something sure went badly wrong this year for the SOTL calendar. As I say, there's been no cutback in those other two 2013 calendars out there in the real world. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if they aren't selling as much. If I want one cheap (er, which I don't), I'll bet I can pick one up in a January sale. Regular SOTL calendar always got my money full price, usually around Sept or Oct. This thread has tapped into something that's really bugged me for a couple of months... but I've been too busy to raise the question.
I think there's a different publishers name attached to "Star Trek Ships" & "Star Trek Official 2013". Danilo. They aren't distributing Ships of the Line at all it seems. So perhaps not surprising it's being cancelled, if there are loads unsold that never even shipped abroad. And what, with the Next Generation hero ship on the front this year? Still enough interest in the UK and Europe I'd have thought!
No idea what prevented me getting one. I can only speculate. But if regular SOTL is the ship-based one out there this time next year, I'll certainly buy it. I'm definitely suspicious about the obvious conflict of interest between two calendars, and one having apparently seen off the other.
