    The website seems real enough. But we can't know everything. I found it be Googling Gamma VI. It seems likelier that the OP would base his joke novel on an actual playset than fabricate both a cover and a fictional playset.

    I'm just glad I remembered what day it is when I saw the headline. If not I would have been really disappointed when I realized this was fake.
    Given the current situation in regards to the books, this is kind of a mean joke.

    I almost fell for this when I read Dayton’s blog post.

    Then I remembered the date.

    That’s great cover art.

    Me, too, but I couldn't see Pocket announcing they had renewed the license in this way.

    You'll note that I specifically avoided the use of "Pocket" or "novel" anywhere in the post. :devil:

    Is that because Titan is publishing it?

    Two years ago, I saw a boxed one in a collectables store on Long Island. Unfortunately I didn't have the cash or luggage space for it (or the Next Gen engine room playset I was so desperate for when I was 10)

    Not really, but opinions can differ, I found it rather amusing.

    Oooohhh, so it's a novelization! :lol: Hopefully they let Dayton expand on what's in the script, or it's gonna be a really short book... ;)

    (Now that I've seen the commercial, I finally understand what that thing is to the right of the landing party!)

    Well done! :)

    Kirk looks rather pudgy there. Bones has been letting him slide on his physical it seems.

    The playset was real. I had it.
