    That makes at least issue 161 I think so we’re definitely not ending at 160 then.

    Now THAT design I really like! Almost a hybrid between Discovery and Defiant.
    I think at last notification we're going up to 180 now.

    Dang, I've always been fascinated with the Sarajevo! On television, it IMO looked more like an alien ship. With the better view of the model - it looks more human, and also kinda' awesome, in a throwback 70s/Star Wars-inspired way. I really dig it.

    The night ship was extremely cool, and something actually alien, that still works with the Star Trek aesthetics. IMO definitely a win for the collection, but picky me that is trying to get as few ships as possible is probably going to skip this one, simply because it had such a minor role.

    Just got an email notification for V'Ger!

    I guess the skipped Spacedock special truly is permanently MIA for subscribers, despite its apparent availability on the main online shop.

    I might get the Sarajevo, as I tend to get every "Enterprise" ship that I can (except the Romulan BOP from "Minefield", whose look I find too anachronistic). I'm still holding out hope for Degra's ship, which I think, at this point, might be the most frequently-appearing Trek ship not to get a model.

    The Lakul might have an outside chance, and I suppose the Bajoran scout is a long shot at this point.

    And a couple of pics of the neck torpedo launcher section, which was also missing:

    Well I haven't had a regular subscription ship for 3 months! #147 was my last ship received. :shrug: It's like they want me to drop my subscription as sometimes I forget they are any more ships until I come here.

    Nice work!
    I'm still wondering why they never bothered to correct it...? It looks much better now!

    Things are definitely getting more pear-shaped for them lately. Their penchant for horrible communication persists. But they sure are Johnny-on-the-spot with their 3-5 emails a day trying to get us to buy into another new subscription. Harry Potter, Alien/Predator, Walking Dead, James Bond, Lord of the Rings, etc., etc. And they also send me spam emails for Star Trek, BSG and the BTTF DeLorean, as if their marketing team don't already know I'm a subscriber to those things!

    Little life lesson to marketeers - don't keep trying to sell something to someone who's already bought into that something. It lessens confidence in the product.

    I received this today and am enjoying it quite a bit. Really nothing new but there are a lot of "cross section" images I haven't see before. It's written as in-universe as if the ship actually existed and the tech was real. The only downside is that for a "hardcover" book it feels rather flimsy. The model is exactly like Issue #1 even the box it comes in.

    I've seen this available for a while but never thought the need to get it. Looks like a lot of the interior diagrams are recycled from the 90s Fact Files.

    Also, I really can't wait for any more information on the USS Emmett Till. That has to be my favourite new Federation design in.... years!

    If you do think that you want to get that magazine you should try to look for a new copy at a store or any new friends that have a friend. Before you buy is. You may not like it but you should view it before you get it.

    Did that just come out where you’re at? It came out a year ago in the UK.
    It’s funny how some have to wait ages for ships while others don’t, and some don’t get them at all.

    Still prefer the Aventine. The Till looks a bit weird around the nacelle area.
    After 2 months I finally got my next Discovery subscription with the Edison. It’s a okay ship but it still looks like a next gem ship. The next ship is hideous though. I don’t see how that got past the producers. I know they have questionable taste but that was is truly awful.

    the model I have came out way back in 1999, and I didn't put it together as my work horse
