Anybody in the US got their BoP and NX-01 yet?
Not yet. I expect them to arrive next week.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Got my Intrepid & K'tinga two days ago. As my favourite class, the Intrepid is absolutely gorgeous and im glad they have done her justice.

Its weird, I also got my subscriber perk [the Enterprise D Plaque: very heavy and quality feeling] but I STILL dont have issues 1 & 2.

Is it a full size replica of the one on the show or is it miniaturized? If you could, pictures would be awesome. The plaque was the deciding factor for me to subscribe.

EDIT:

I found a blog that goes through and reviews each release. They had an article on the plaque with some pictures, but no size:

You should send them an email. That doesn't sound right.

The BoP hit stores shelves today in the US, so it (and NX-01) should be arriving in the mail anytime now, so...

Yeah, I was reading thru them earlier today. Interesting section on the NX-01.5 Refit. Shame that ENT never got a Season 5. Apparently the plan was to constantly upgrade the ship through-out the series, being that it was the experimental maiden ship and would need constant upgrading as it encountered new and more dangerous threats. Some of the initial designs for the NX-01 included a secondary hull. Wished they would have gone with that to begin with. Probably would have helped with the ratings.

I'm willing to bet the addition of a secondary hull on the hero ship would have had absolutely zero impact on the ratings...

IMO they screwed up. By the time NX-02 came out, they should have names the class and stopped with the "NX" thing.

The "Archer" class would have been sufficient.

Nice to see something besides action figures for a change. There are never enough spaceship replicas out there.
