Star Trek Starships Partwork #1 – Enterprise-D revisited

Back on 23 August 2012 (in other words a year ago, almost to the day) I posted about issue 1 of the Star Trek Starships Collection. I had subscribed to the pilot series of this part-work that in the end only lasted three issues. If I recall correctly I actually received my issues in reverse order. You can read my original post here: http://www.monobrowze.co.uk/star-trek-starships-partwork-1-enterprise-d/

Issue 1 was the Enterprise-D from Star Trek The Next Generation and now, one year on, the series has finally appeared nationwide across the UK with a release also promised for the USA later in the year.

Given that issue 1 is just £1.99 I thought I’d buy it again to compare and contrast with last year’s version. In the meantime here are a couple of quick photos

In theory my subscription should pick up with issue 4 but I have a funny suspicion it will take numerous emails and phone calls to chase it up when the time comes.

Also my model with issue 2 (The refit Enterprise from Star Trek The Motion Picture) arrived broken last year so I’ve been patiently waiting for a replacement. That will probably require chasing up as well. You can see that post at http://www.monobrowze.co.uk/star-trek-starships-partwork-2-enterprise-refit/

I thought I would put this news on here as I have noticed that my posts on the first three issues in 2012 are among the most popular posts on my blog. I will attempt to keep posting some photos of the models as they become available.

The promised subscription gifts will still apparently include a light-up Borg cube and an Enterprise dedication plaque.
