Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I believe only the first handful of releases are going to the stores, after that they're subscriber exclusives.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I'm starting to wonder if they plan on sending issues 5&6 out with DS9.

I was told they plan on billing for the DS9 Space Station on 23 December, so I expect it with issue 7&8.

That's my guess as well, both because of the announced billing date and since I (and several others) have already received issues 5&6.

Odd. There are a few of us that hasn't received or been billed for issues 5&6.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Heard back from the Facebook crew:

What's the latest word on DS9 for the states? Will we be getting it about the same time we get issues 5&6?

Hi Christopher,

Thank you for your message. Yes, this is correct! You'll be receiving it around the same time (maybe a few days later) than issues 5 and 6 - probably around the middle of January.

If there's anything else we can help you with please don't hesitate to contact us,

Many thanks, STSS
If it's the middle is January, why a month behind with issues 5&6?

Hi Christopher,

There's been a delay with subscribers for taking payment for issues 5 and 6, we'll be attempting it next week so realistically they're not going to be with you until January - sorry for the inconvenience with this.

[…]

Many thanks, STSS
So I don't panic, when do you all foresee issues 7&8 releasing?

Hi Christopher,

Thank you for your message, we'll take the payment for these 28 days after when we take for issues 5 and 6. As soon as we take the payment we'll dispatch them!

Many thanks, STSS

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Interesting, they must have encountered the issue part-way through the payment/shipping process.

I got my Romulan Warbird & U.S.S. Voyager without issue last Friday, so it must have been an issue encountered part-way through the payment/shipping process. Looks like a bunch of subscribers will be getting 4 issues in January.

In order to move this thread into a less monetary/shipping & receiving direction, why don't we talk about special issues we'd all like to see that aren't listed on Memory-Alpha?

I wonder if they're going to go further than what is listed so far. I want them to do probes along with space stations & JJverse ships. And by probes, I mean the big ones like V'Ger and the Whale Probe.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Are they planning on doing the shuttlecraft? I think the runabout is on the list, but that's the only one close that I've seen.

In addition to Earth spacedock from III-VI, I'd like to see the Regula station or the orbital office from TMP.

Starshipwise, I want the U.S.S. Pasteur. Also, I know I've seen the Centaur-class listed on Facebook and Memory Alpha, but it's probably so far down the line that they may never get to it.

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

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Definately the never before made issues are what I look for. Of coarse the greats must be made, but I like to see stuff that has never been produced before as a toy or model. I would also like to see some of the shuttlecraft, and the various space stations (SB 375, Regula, etc). I would also like to see the Maquis Fighter, the one seen heavily during the Dominion War, not the Raider which is made a lot (and also on the list for 2014). I also wouldn't mind seeing some of the major fan made models (like DS9 II or the Titan), but that is unrealistic.

^ You may be right that it's unrealistic, but I'd love to see them do some of the novel-only ships, such as the Titan and Aventine.

I also thought it would be really cool if they did something like a "ships that almost were" type of special miniseries. It would be really great to get models of ships like the Phase II Enterprise and the Voyager study model.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Hmm. I too would enjoy seeing the Phase II version of the Enterprise as a model.

I would also like to see the "Planet of the Titans" version of the Enterprise as designed by Ralph McQuarrie. I've seen fan models of it and thought it looked interesting.

Nope, I also thought they were orange/brown and that colour scheme is spot on.
I think the CGI models from DS9 might have been more of a yellow-brown, though that might just be lighting. (The STO model is yellow-brown.) The Micro-Machines toy is bright yellow, though.
