    I got the Khitimer from the Star Trek Online range. An interesting ship design; fusing Starfleet and Klingons designs together. I like the inclusion of the yellow.

    I also bought some ships from the Eaglemoss sale. I like the Shuttle concept from TOS. These are the sort of things we should be seeing in Strange New Worlds.

    That would be awesome in SNW!

    I'm torn on whether I really like, or really hate the Khitomer. Every time I look at it, I have different thoughts.
    I do love the shuttle concept though, and I'm going to order that.

    they would NEVER let designs like that anywhere near SNW.

    I like that shuttle concept. Is it from Star Trek: Phase II?

    IIRC, it was an original concept for TOS, but organic, curved surfaces were too expensive. The Galileo was the final result.

    It also looks considerably larger as well, which also had to be a strike against it.

    I’m the same way. I try to stay on the bleeding edge of science stories…but behind here.

    Now instead of SNW, have the Romulan find that shuttle and scale it up, abandoning the Vulcan like Cabbage of Masao for it.

    The 2nd edition of the Star Trek: Shipyards - Starfleet Ships 2294 - The Future book reveals the names and registry numbers of Starfleet ships of the year 3189.
    One of these is the four-nacelled (but unpyloned) USS Curie NCC-81890-J. Named after Kirsten Beyer's Merian-class USS Curie NCC-81890 from the Project Full Circle VOY novels!
    Memory Beta link: https://memory-beta.fandom.com/wiki/USS_Curie_(NCC-81890)

    Mark Rademaker, who got us the Vesta-class USS Aventine, also designed the Merian-class. I wonder if he could be tapped to partner with Eaglemoss again to give us his USS Curie?.

    I know. It actually looks like it belongs there. Can’t have that. :)

    The "Romulan Vessel" has become available in the UK and EU, does anyone here already have it? Since the preview page always shows four upcoming ships, there should be at least one new picture in there - either of the other Romulan warbird, or of the mysterious 10th issue.

    I'm curious about the 10th issue, too.
    The Universe collection mags only show three upcoming ships, and have displayed the same three for the last two mags (Oh's flagship, Wallenberg class, Snakehead).

    Three "coming soon" models on the lower half of the page, plus the "next issue" on the upper half. So it has to show issue 6 (Snakehead) and either issues 7+8+9, 7+8+10, 7+9+10, or 8+9+10. (Unless the same ship appears twice.)

    I'm still hoping for the 2385 Mars shuttle. They said Federation ships tend to sell best, and there weren't many in PIC, so they'd be stupid not to release this one.

    Lol. I ordered K-7 and got sent an XL Nebula instead! I guess I'm £40 up?

    Ah, sorry! I overlooked the obvious. Checking on Memory Alpha*, the only remaining announced PIC vessel is the other Romulan warbird (the non-flagship, non W-wing). Let's affectionately call it the paper plane.
    Neither the Martian shuttle (McCall class) nor the Artifact cube have been announced, but I believe they'll be must-haves down the line.

    The Gerry Anderson Store has posted an unboxing video of "their" Eagle Transporter model,
    found here:

    I'm tempted by this but I have no need for multiple large Eagles, so I'm holding out for the laboratory version.
