    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.

    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.

    I scanned over a thousand pages (yes, literally) of my old Starlogs before the Archive ever came to my attention, and mostly before it was available. I don't regret it. I was doing my thing, hobby-wise, and I created a personal archive that I draw on quite often. I have topics tagged to make them searchable.

    A very appropriate way to spend one's time, hobby-wise. That must have been quite an endeavour. The fact that it is searchable is another valuable bonus.

    Memory Alpha has a complete list: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Starlog_(magazine)

    I've greatly enjoyed going through all the coverage for TMP. Those were my favorite issues when I was younger.

    I keep wishing someone would scan in the early issues of Cinefex. I have a pdf of the first issue, but I can't find a complete digital copy of issue two anywhere.

    Me too. The iPad App has all the back issues up to number 126, but it's not the same.

    Why would they continue giving a canceled show extensive coverage? If a show wasn't getting enough ratings to even receive a second season, it stands to reason that most readers wouldn't be terribly interested in reading about it, either.

    Starlog did do occasional articles about more fondly-remembered science fiction shows like Buck Rogers and Lost in Space (and yes, Star Trek, of course), but the reason other shows like Time Trax and Space Precinct were canceled is because they were crap.

    I loved Starlog.

    I miss my old collection, now long gone and buried somewhere in our state's central landfill.
