Enterprise-J! *faint* That's great ship I'm looking forward to.

Merchantman isn't my cup of tea, but basically everything that came in CGI is a potential target, e.g. the Hirogen hunter escort.

Supposed to run to 70+ issues and only about 25 of them have been released so far, so there's time for them to flesh it out.

One ship I reckon be good to have in the collection would be the nx enterprise version that doug Drexler did that make the ship look like a constitution class.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

There are lots of offical ships still left. I would focus on those before asking about things like the Titan or the secondary-hull Drexler NX-01; the latter just makes me sad because it reminds me what could have been for the series.

Translation please. Not sure if you're not a native English speaker or something else, but that makes no sense what so ever.

No thank You. It's a hideous design, and one that is in no way official. It's basically fan sank by a designer on the show.

There are hundreds of ships that are official to the tv shows and films. How about we get those, before we get the work that has literally nothing to do with the tv shows.

I'd love to have it. It's already been produced as a model kit, so I can see a model as a logical stretch. That being said, whack it at the end of the collection. A special treat to folks who stuck through it to the end. I'd much rather have a complete set of First Contact ships than the NX-Refit, but i'd rather take the NX-Refit over a Numiri Patrol ship.

The NX Refit was intended to be used in the next season but the series was cancelled before that happened. I would have liked to have seen it appear as the ship was repaired after the Xindi arc- that would have been a great opportunity to add more 'cowbell' to the ship.

I do not believe this is true. Doug designed a ship that could have a section swapped out. But I have never heard producers say that they were going to do that.

1st even if a writer, or even head writer wanted to. IT would mean having to have completely new ship shots, no recycled footage. Braga wanted to have some damage on Voyager throughout his tenure, but even with a larger audience and no fear of cancellation, they weren't going to stop using recycled footage.

They only time I could see Rick ever accepting the expense is if it happened in the last episode. Say at the end where you see the ship get a remodel, and have a shot to two. It certainly wouldn't be done on a long term basis.

Next point, even if I am wrong and Manny decided great idea, and took it to Rick and Rick said yeah lets spend the money. What Doug created would very likely not be the final approved design. Hero ships have always had significant changes versus the design created by the art department.

There is no way that Doug's final design would be the design approved by Manny and then by Rick. Not as a hero ship. Never.

i mean look at Doug's redesigned DS9, do you honestly believe Ira and then Rick would agree with that design?

About the First Contact ships, I hope they add the Steamrunner, Saber and Norway. We've never seen them as models before, except for WizKids' small but well done Saber.
