Is there any way to order individual issues of this thing? I'm interested in the reboot Enterprise and accompanying magazine when they're out but have no interest in the rest.

Especially when there are so, so many more tasty ship being made from across the spectrum of modern Trek?

I'm glad that the runabout is in the mix. I hope more shuttles show up later. The Cochrane from Voyager has always been a favorite, also the Enterprise-E Shuttle from Insurrection I'd love to see made. Of course the Delta Flyer too and the NX-01 shuttlepod
I'm hoping we get those, too. One of the lists somewhere has the Delta Flyer, but other than that I've not seen any mention of any small craft.

That would be cool, too. Doubtful, but cool.

I imagine that if this line is a continued success -- especially when they get to one-off ships and later issues -- they might expand and continue it. Do the stuff not previously thought of.

I mean, if it makes money, there's no reason to stop. Not when Trek has more ships than you can shake a warp core at!

I'm just so worried they'll abruptly end due to low sales. Especially before they get beyond the hero ships we've got 5 versions of already.

That's the ironic thing. I think a lot the big die-hard fans ARE waiting for the unusual ships and perhaps skipping the hero vessels. Sales might actually increase once we get to the oddball ships. I myself am really looking forward to the Breen warship. I also suggested to them the Vulcan shuttle and warp sled from TMP; kind of a 2 for one thing. They replied that they completely forgot about that one and would put it on their list.

The Chaffee from DS9's "The Sound of Her Voice" would be cool; I don't know if its well enough known if you've never seen the calendars its been included in.

It would be nice to add Galileo Seven (NCC-1701-7) in that mix as well.

Agree, shuttle should be part of the collection.

Speaking of shuttlecraft, I wouldn't mind having the shuttles that were used on Spacedock in TSFS and TVH and the new one that was used in TUC and GEN.

Starship-wise, I'm not sure if it has been mentioned yet, but I've always like the little-seen Sydney-class.

I was debited $$39.90. This is the same amount I've been billed previously so I'm thinking it's for 6&7.

Yep, I just received a second charge for $38, which should be for DS9.

Man, all of the sudden having Eaglemoss charge $77.90 in late December makes my wallet hurt.

In all fairness, they did warn you several weeks ago and gave you the opportunity to opt-out.

I almost emailed them when I got the notification that they intended to bill for DS9 right before Christmas.

But I was afraid I might not be able to get DS9 then.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I do agree that their original timeline (end of November) was better timed than right before Christmas, especially for people on a tight budget this time of years

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I just got billed for both as well, but I was able to put my Christmas bonus toward it to pay the full load right before the Holiday.

I know I've already answered but I think what would make me most happy is getting all the ships that were used as other support starfleet ships but not really seen all that often (ships from FC were seen a lot during the domininion war, but ships from TNG were almost never actually seen and TOS there were sketches and even some models but not seen), I'm speeking of coarse of ships like the New Orleans, the Freedom, the Daedelus, the Saladin, the Curry, the Cheyenne, the Intrepid, the Steamrunner, the Sabre etc.
