At this afternoon’s panel for Eaglemoss’s The Official Starship Collection line of model Trek starships, several new additions were announced for the next several releases leading into 2017.

As expected, Eaglemoss’s Ben Robinson confirmed that STAR TREK BEYOND starship USS Franklin is on the way, along with Krall’s swarm ship. In addition, the company will be producing models of the 2009 Trek film’s Kobayashi Maru simulation Klingon Warbird, followed by Space Station K-7 (from “The Trouble With Tribbles”).

Also announced were a convention/subscriber-exclusive model of the SS Yorktown concept model, the USS Saratoga from DS9’s “Emissary,” a Suliban cell ship and ECS Horizon from Star Trek: Enterprise, the Titan and Aventine from the Trek novelist line, and the USS Kyushu from “The Best of Both Worlds.”

In addition, when the topic of starships for the new series – STAR TREK: DISCOVERY – was mentioned, Robinson said that “there are more [starships] than you think” potentially coming for the new show.

Lastly, Robinson shared a first look at Spock’s Jellyfish (from the 2009 Trek film), a prototype of the final model expected to be released around the end of 2016.

All you starship model collectors are sure to be fulfilled in the coming months! All of these ships discussed – and even more not covered in this recap – can be watched on Eaglemoss’s livestream video.

    Can’t wait for the Kyushu. They need to make all the BoBWs models.

    ‘SS Yorktown concept model’

    What is that?

    • Mark Bernero

      Constitution class. Its what GR was going to name what became USS Enterprise.

  • Ling

    That ship is more like something you’d see on a lesser show like Farscape or Babylon 5 than Star Trek, having said that it came from the reboot films so it’s no wonder it doesn’t seem to fit into the Star Trek universe.

    • Jack Strawb

      You don’t have to tell me about the reboots, Ling.

      I doubt even The Next Generation should be considered canon.

      • Ling

        TNG was a brilliant series.
        I think the TNG-DS9 era for me is more of a representation of Star Trek as it had more time to really build on that universe that was started by TOS.
        TNG was and still is immensely popular, I’d go as far to say that it has more of a special place in fans hearts than TOS.
        In terms of numbers, there are possibly more people around today who were introduced to Star Trek through the TNG era series than there are fans who were there from the very beginning with TOS.

      • LS650

        Well, it is.

    • Julian Glover

      I don’t think it was meant to. In star trek 2009 that ship is meant to come from the future. Wayyy in the future, so the different look is probably intentional.

  • Fiery Little One

    This weekend I dipped into this line with a couple of older ship releases, the Jem’Hadar fighter and the Antares. Some of these upcoming releases have my attention more than others, the Titan and the Franklin for example.

    • MattR

      Yeah, some of the ships are more interesting than others. But I’m a happy subscriber because what I really appreciate is the fact that they’re even doing the one-off ships that appeared very briefly. There have been a lot of interesting ships in the last 50 years that never get produced in model form. Most other lines would have done a ton of variants, but Eaglemoss has not really done many straight repaints (and even those weren’t forced as part of the subscription).

      • Fiery Little One

        This is something I’ve gathered. At least one member of a board I’m on gets them from time to time and he hasn’t complained too much. I’m just not sure if he’s a subscriber or if he does it like me where he’ll pick them up as he sees them.

        • MattR

          Do you buy from their online shop? They have some good sales every now and then, like their current 30% off sale.

          • Fiery Little One

            I’m not really much of an online shopper. Most of that has to do with not knowing if the picture is going to match what you’re going to get. That said, thanks for the tip.

    I know this is off-topic but I heard that the release date for Star Trek beyond on DVD and Blu-ray is September 20. I was under the impression that it was going to be released sometime in November. I’ve checked various sites and they’re saying September 20. Here’s one of them. http://www.newdvdreleasedates.com/m1880/star-trek-beyond-dvd-release-date

    • The 9/20 date was incorrect and has been pulled. We expect an official release with dates soon.

      • Phil Gerard Rizzo

        Well it now appears that it is set for November 1 according to a lot of DVD and Blu-ray sites.

  • Reign1701A

    Man I wish they announced the Beyond 1701-A or the Beyond refit as specials. I think the JJ D7 and Kobayashi Maru are way down on my wanted list.

    • Robinson indicated that they don’t yet have the necessary reference documentation to create those models yet.

      • Reign1701A

        Can’t be that hard to get them if they have the license one would think. Mobius Models is making a Beyond Refit kit, for example. I’m betting that Paramount doesn’t want any sort of depiction of the 1701A yet given that it’s sort of a spoiler. Maybe after the movie comes out on home video they’ll allow replicas of it to be made.

  • Thomas Elkins

    I’d like STO’s Odyssey Class 1701-F.

  • Jeremy

    I have just subscribed to the Starships collection and have a question I have not been able to find the answer to anywhere.

    Does Eaglemoss offer past special editions to new subscribers. For instance I really want to get my hands on the DS9 model which was special edition 1. Do they offer these at any time to new subscribers or did you have to be a subscriber at that point in time to get one?
