Dear all,
Once again, I'm stumped as to which forum to post this in. No-one seems to have posted the link before, even if I'm the last to find it, so:

http://archive.org/details/starlogmagazine

is a link to the Internet Archive's scans of the first 224 issues of "Starlog" magazine. I've only had time for a quick look so far, but the general quality of the scans seems fairly good, it seems to be legal, and it's free!
This is my big chance to track down all those issues I regret throwing out years ago, and finding that they weren't that great anyway...

Best wishes

Timon
The Internet Archive is right near me. It's an amazing place and they're working hard to preserve everything they can, from web pages to blogs to old books and films.

Re: Starlog Magazine

That's great! Where would I be without Starlog? It frightens me to think about it. I still have almost 10 years of Starlog stacked in a closet. My first introduction to Macross and The Prisoner came from Starlog. Thanks for the link!

Awesome mag, for it's time! I got my first ever fan-made blueprints through them, which led me to discover Star Station Aurora. I'll never forget getting the Excelsior blueprints in the mail- - totally professional! They could of been on store shelves right next to the "official" sets,and they looked awesome on my bookshelf sitting next to the TMP ones.

I can even see the old ad listings in the "Trading Post" with these downloads! Isn't free stuff from the internet GREAT!!!!
I miss those days. I got fooled by Starship Design. I thought it would be a monthly (fictional) publication--when it was even more than that--a fictional monthly publication--not like the Starship collection from the UK in that there was only one Starship Design.

Stupid me tried to subscribe to it.

Faithfully bought every issue up until the mid-60-range. It was a connection to the outside world of SF for a kid like me from a small Appalachian town.

Re: Starlog Magazine

Is there a website that has a comprehensive listing of all the issues with Star Trek (particularly, the original series) content?

Also note there are more issues than those posted. I have all the ones posted, but need some after that range. Maybe someone will donate more scans to get the complete collection.

I remember there was a movie to be called Monolith, with a spacecraft that reminded me of the FASA Gorn battleship. Avatar type morality play.

Re: Starlog Magazine

I scanned over a thousand pages (yes, literally) of my old Starlogs before the Archive ever came to my attention, and mostly before it was available. I don't regret it. I was doing my thing, hobby-wise, and I created a personal archive that I draw on quite often. I have topics tagged to make them searchable.

A very appropriate way to spend one's time, hobby-wise. That must have been quite an endeavour. The fact that it is searchable is another valuable bonus.

Memory Alpha has a complete list: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Starlog_(magazine)

I've greatly enjoyed going through all the coverage for TMP. Those were my favorite issues when I was younger.

I keep wishing someone would scan in the early issues of Cinefex. I have a pdf of the first issue, but I can't find a complete digital copy of issue two anywhere.

Me too. The iPad App has all the back issues up to number 126, but it's not the same.

It's funny how many times they chose to heavily and enthusiasticly feature a show, only to stop when said show was cancelled. Happened with Time Trax, which got covered for three or four months with interviews, specials etc., but then it got cancelled. Same with Space Rangers, Earth 2 and Space Police. In insight, it's funny to see how often they were "wrong" about a show being the next hit. But then again, what is a magazine going to do?
Why would they continue giving a canceled show extensive coverage? If a show wasn't getting enough ratings to even receive a second season, it stands to reason that most readers wouldn't be terribly interested in reading about it, either.

Starlog did do occasional articles about more fondly-remembered science fiction shows like Buck Rogers and Lost in Space (and yes, Star Trek, of course), but the reason other shows like Time Trax and Space Precinct were canceled is because they were crap.

Re: Starlog Magazine

I loved Starlog.

I miss my old collection, now long gone and buried somewhere in our state's central landfill.
