    Since the magazine is undergoing a relaunch, I've got a hunch it may be going to a digital-only platform since that's been the trend lately for print publications. Fortunately, unlike Captain Kirk, my hunches are not always right.

    That would not surprise me. Titan does Star Wars magazines too right. Have them back to back one upside down. Time to share.

    Digital only? No. Definitely not. :)

    New Trek is streaming after all. One more way to tick off fans

    I have many issues from that run that I was preparing to put on eBay. I'm not looking to make a fortune selling the magazines, just don't want it to cost me to ship them ... which could be an issue given where you are. If you are interested, I'd be happy to let you know what issues I have and we can see if we can work something out. It would be great for them to go to another Trek fan.

    I was able to snag them all on eBay after that post. The first 20 I won for $31 plus shipping, and the others I got in packs of four for just under $20 a pack. It was definitely less than the annual subscription price (something like $84 a year? Get out of town with that!).

    Thanks for the offer, and I wish you luck unloading them!

    I'd be kind of surprised if they didn't !

    Titan has updated their twitter page about the new Star Trek Magazine and a link to a page about updates to the magazine and how many magazines will be published if you have a subscription.

    Come to think of it, do you think there will be an option to buy this digitally? I live in Poland and this year getting anything delivered from non-neighbouring countries has been a nightmare. (I bought some second hand ST novels from a German bookstore and they were here in a flash. But my UK orders take a month or more (7 months in one extreme case), and American orders take longer still.)

    I read a Daily Star trek news article and they're going to be at New York Comic con to talk about the new relaunch of the magazine .James Swallow and Lisa Klink & some other people are going to talk about it online not in a zoom call panel.I know there's going to be some special digital articles if you sent them your email address. Here's some phone numbers to contact Titan Magazine. UK 01778392085 Outside Usa 847-559-7339 Unfortunately I had a similar experience years ago ordering The Star Trek Magazine from the UK it took several months to get them. Good luck trying to get the magazine

    I pulled the trigger. Not much other than the exclusive fiction is a draw for me, but it ended up being enough.

    You had me at

    Garak meeting Q.

    Sure, the article says this is only "hinted" at, but this is such a brilliant match-up that I'm really hoping it comes to pass!

    And a new Enterprise story with Captain Jonathan Archer that's what I'm excited about.:biggrin::bolian: James Swallow wrote the story and it takes before the Enterprise pilot Broken bow.

    This is looking awesome. What do you guys think would be the best way to buy this if I'm stationed in Poland? Order from amazon.com? Wait a month and order from amazon.co.uk? [Will it even be there?]

    When looking for some official website of the mag I ultimately ended at 'pubservice.com', which offered me a $45 subscription (for 4 issues). To be honest, the website seems barebones and kinda fishy. Have any of you guys used it?

    Do you think there's some digital-only option?...

    I went ahead and subscribed on their state-of-the-art-in-1999 website. I ordered back issues of the old magazine a few weeks ago (to complete my run) and they arrived a short time later, so it’s legit.

    I didn’t see a digital option, because I would have totally gone that route. But apparently if you subscribe through that website, you get bonus digital content, including extra stories. So that might make it worth your while to subscribe.
