Time for another special edition! As is often the case for the specials this model comes from the Kelvinverse and is the first ship in the collection from the latest movie. We should be seeing a swarm ship from Beyond as a special at some point too. The Franklin is an old ship, uncovered on […]Read more "USS Franklin"
I opened my previous article with the concept of sub-categories in the collection. Here’s another I had forgotten about – fighter ships. So this is different to shuttlecraft and runabouts but are one or two person ships, generally winged and aerodynamically built for maneuverability. In this sub-category we can include the Maquis Raider, Jem’Hadar Fighter, […]Read more "Starfleet Academy Flight Training Craft"

For example Federation ships that appeared in the Battle of Sector 001, wrecks from the Borg encounter at Wolf 359 and the Kelvin-verse ships that sometimes appear as specials.

A target of 10,000 signatures was reached and Ben said they […]Read more "USS Titan Preview"

I know it has been […]Read more "Suliban Cell Ship"
It’s been a while since we saw the ECS Fortunate, in fact almost half the collection ago. This issue gives us another ECS cargo ship, the Horizon, which Ensign Mayweather of the NX-01 grew up on. The Horizon is roughly similar in layout to the Fortunate, but the design differs considerably in various ways. Both […]Read more "ECS Horizon"
