    (Photographed with my newly arrived Borg Tribble prop, created by SPFX guy Roger Sides, who made a whole litter of them as cast and crew gifts on the set of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" while building the Borg Cube for “Q Who”. This tribble is made by Roger, from the original moulds, but painted differently so he could tell them all apart. Roger even drew me a little cartoon and autographed it!)

    Voyager - Sühne (Atonement) has just arrived. With Harry Kim as cover boy. Tuvok isn't aboard but would surely quote some Starfleet regulations as to Kims hairstyle....;) :vulcan:

    December was Artist Edition Cover month at IDW, so this b/w alternate cover for "Boldly Go" #15 shows an uncropped, uncoloured cover illustration. For January, "Discovery" #2, "Star Trek Magazine" #65 - and a Michael Burnham "Discovery" namedrop on the cover of "Superman" #39?

    Someone asked the cover artist on Twitter if the surname signature was also a salute to the lead character in "Star Trek: Discovery" - and the answer was yes.

    I recently got the Echoes and Reflections collection of the Myriad Universes, out of curiosity about The Chimes at Midnight.

    I've also been curious about the Mere Anarchy collection for a while, so now that recently arrived in the mail.

    I've assembled all but one issue of the DC volume 2 series of TNG. I really wish the DC series from the 80's and early 90's were collected in TPB volumes, but now I'm not worried about it, I just wanted to have physical copies of their TOS and TNG series from those decades.

    At left, Stamets and Dr Culber enamelled pins, available separately from Fansets - but I liked the idea of a fellow fan and put them together in the same packet. Mr Saru is also from Fansets and the miniature lapel pin is from Qmx (via Galaxy Bookshop).

    Also "Boldly Go" comic #16:
