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:

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

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.

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.

Re: Starlog Magazine

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.
