Any of you pre-order? Did you get a confirmation e-mail? Any of you use PayPal? I've got no confirmation e-mail which always worries me... :S
Yep, I pre-ordered as well. Not with PayPal, but with a regular credit card. I did not get a confirmation email either, which I do find odd and a slight breach of internet business etiquette. However, IIRC, these are the same folks that did the original Star Trek Fact Files many years ago, and I found them to be straight shooters and reliable to deal with, particularly when I had a few skipped issues on occasion. They always sent me extras at their expense. If they are the same folks (and I do believe they are), then I am confident it will work out as we are hoping.

I just get nervous when I don't get a confirmation e-mail. I like to have it to point to and say "SEE!" when things go wrong. :P

We should have a thread somewhere where people can post pics showing off their ship collection.

The fact that they're releasing it the year of a movie (which is likely not a coincidence) can't hurt. I think the fact that they couldn't keep up with the demand initially is encouraging. Perhaps they'll even add some ships to the list.

Unfortunately, as is the case with a decent Netflix selection, Canadians like myself are left out.
Price you pay for living in a country with health care. Good trade if you ask me.

As for showing off ships... that would take too much time. lol. And too many photos!

Hey! Every country has Health Care. It's just that in some countries you get what you pay for more than others.

Just wait till the Government is your ONLY source for Health Care and then they deny you for some unknown regulation on Page 17,658 of the Law, and then where will you go for treatment? No sir, not me. I like having choice in health care.

I thought about making short little videos of them and posting them on YouTube. You know...just kinda sit them there on my table, rotate them around and shoot them with my 1080p phone camera.

Well, I prefer your country's leader to mine (even though I voted for him the first time).

Point taken on the health care, but I do wish those ships could may their way just a bit further north. (It can't be any harder than shipping 'em to Alaska or Hawaii).

I hope this goes well, there are some ships listed I would like to have in my collection. Compared to resin kits the prices are good, but hesitate to commit to a subscription.

Maybe it's the fact that sci-fi already has an iconic spacecraft shaped like a sphere, but I'll need a bit more than that to excite me. (Call me when you're ready to show off an Akira).

I see your disappointment and I raise you an Excelsior model shot.

Use above link....it's the same.

Well, that's a little better, even though the Exie's been done a million times as well. Looks pretty nice, even though I have to admit I find the white color a bit disorienting. Years of looking at Micro Machines has apparently conditioned me to think that the "B" is white while the Excelsior is BLUE.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

They'll most certainly do the most famous and "common" ships in the early run of the subscription. We'll likely get into the less-explored ships in the later issues. I, too, am looking forward to an Akira. And a Centaur for that matter...

^That's not great business sense, you sprinkle the main ones through the run. Forcing people to get them all.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

As I said earlier, becareful with buying from stores. I work in retail and after Issue 6 or so we stop getting in partworks, as they go from sale or return to firm sale only. Now different retailers might operate a different policy, and the US retailers might be different from UK retailers. But I would recommend you either subscribe or speak to your local retailer when the first issue comes out and ask them if they will continue to get it in.

Bear in mind retailers only have limited space and plenty of partworks come out, they can't possible keep getting in copies of them all in.

Unfortunately, I didn't see the Centaur on the list at Memory Alpha. I suppose it's possible that more might be released, if demand is great, but considering there's already seventy listed ships, plus a handful of bonus ones, that'd have to be some pretty big demand.

Agreed. I assume the list at MA was the tentative release order.
