    I'm not sure they have plans yet. From the interview Ben Robinson did with Trekcore back in early August

    ROBINSON: They’re getting closer to each other – and for Discovery, that will launch in the US and UK at the same time. I don’t know what our plans are for Germany – our other major territory – or Japan, but our first plan is to launch in our English-language markets, with Australia that normally follows shortly after.

    If you mean the magazines online, I'm not sure as I've never looked at them online. That's the only part of your subscription that's really online. You can't modify credit card data, etc.

    Titan magazine did not ship with the models for anyone in the US as far as I'm aware. It will come separately.

    This is normally such a well-behaved, drama-free thread. Let's keep it that way. Thanks.

    I used to be a hater for the Discovery but after seeing the model and those orthos on their website I think I've warmed up to it quite a bit I might pick one up at some point! Interestingly enough I used to be a fan of the Planet of the Titans Enterprise concept and thought it'd be neat if they made a series set on one although I envisioned the design to be a post tmp one instead of pre tos.

    Has anyone heard any news on Eaglemoss making a model for the Enterpris-F from Star Trek Online?

    No word on the E-F yet. Likely depends on the success of Titan and Aventine.

    ^ The DSC Collection goes
    1) USS Shenzhou NCC-1227
    2) USS Discovery NCC-1031
    3) USS Kerala (we don’t know which of the ships it is yet)
    4) 2250s Klingon bird of prey.
    TBA) USS Europa NCC-1648

    Slightly irrelevant, but I just bought the XL 1701-D. OMG! What an incredible model! If you’re a fan of TNG or the Galaxy-class this is unmissable! And that’s coming from a Galaxy-class "hater"! :lol:

    I'm not a big fan of the D either, but it is a mighty shiney model.

    i thought the implication was that the kerala was the klingon capital ship.
    as a galaxy-class lover and a sovereign-class eh-er, i opted for the jumbo E over the D. the latter is just too inaccurate.

    interesting. kerala is an indian name, so it would make sense. i might've just been reading ben's tweet wrong.

    i did end up subscribing with the mind to cancel once they get into the klingon ships, none of which i thought were particularly attractive. if the kerala is a federation ship, that means i'll be hanging in there a little longer than expected.

    ^ Sounds like a plan. Do you consider to get subsequent Federation ship individually?

    Is there a new link somewhere for the subscription? Can't seem to find it on their site.

    yeah, i'll go ship by ship after the shenzhou and discovery, i can't believe that entire fleet we saw is worth owning. again, i really didn't care for any of the klingon ships we saw, so those alone will cause me to break the subscription, it's just a matter of when.
    must be named after albert scott crossfield, the first pilot to fly 2x the speed of sounds. or so says wikipedia.

    Aye, like the Walker it’s for another US-American test pilot. While the honour is earned, I hope further class names are as culturally diverse as the battle fleet itself.

    I think/hope it’s this ship right here:

    It did a glorious flyby in the battle and it’s the only one that’s memorable afterwards. It’s the only one (other than the hero ships) that I’m interested in anyway.

    Opted? There's no choice here. I’m getting both! :lol:
    But seriously, any doubts about inaccuracies will be forgotten once someone watches/holds the XL version of the D up close! IMHO it’s worth it.

    Glad that they’re doing Probert’s 1701-C concept but not that they’re labeling it as such. There’s only one USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C and I hope Eaglemoss will give us a correct XL version of her (and soon).

    The XL-C is scheduled. In-universe you can assume the concept was the original configuration, and that the E-C we saw was the refit.
