"A few days ago I shared out first preview pages from Eaglemoss' new Star Trek Shipyards books, and now, thanks to Amazon, we have a whole load more. Crucially these include several pages of the new features added to these books, such as size charts, fleet listings, and artwork – The rest of the books are mainly reusing content published in the magazines from The Official Starships Collection. So continue below to check out the new things these books offer.

There are two books in the series so far, each spanning different eras of Starfleet starships. I'm going to start back to front, because the first spread from the 2294 – The Future book is my favourite!…"

Hey!… you are puting strong bad feelings here…

As those bad people when they comment in negative waves about Jar Jar Binks!… why so profund hate?….


Captain Gideon10 Jul 2018 1:11 p.m. PST

Because I hate the Bleeped texting ships from Discovery and I have that right for saying so.

Yes… you are … like others fellow members have the right to show their hate to JJB… and je ne suis pas d'accord with them… as in this case (smile).

Why so many hate?… it's fiction after all… you can like it or not.. but… hate it?….


Captain Gideon11 Jul 2018 1:41 p.m. PST

I have many reasons to hate things so let's leave it at that.

For a lot of fans, I guess you could say the Discovery is the Jar Jar Binks of the Star Trek franchise.

Ghostrunner you had no call to insult Jar Jar Binks by even connecting him with Crapovery,that was low even for you.

Ghostrunner13 Jul 2018 4:54 a.m. PST

Well, thank you.

Captain Gideon13 Jul 2018 6:26 p.m. PST

Hussar62 do you have a point?

Hussar6213 Jul 2018 7:13 p.m. PST


Captain Gideon15 Jul 2018 7:57 a.m. PST

And what is your point?

Hussar6215 Jul 2018 6:56 p.m. PST

I think your response to the original post was way over the top. You can "hate" what you please, but if that's all you say about something with out providing any context for that "hate", it just comes across as ill informed opinion. I don't care for Discovery either because I don't feel it fits into the TOS prime timline. What I have seen of the fan produced video Axanar is superior and feels like real Trek. In addition the ships designed for Axanar fit well into the TOS timeline. YouTube link My apologies for "yanking your chain" with my earlier responses.

Hussar62 I might not have the words at times and saying that I hate something is the best way of expressing myself.

But I can say is that the ships of Discovery don't feel like real Trek,the Klingon ships(if you can call them that)would fit better in Warhammer or something else but NOT Star Trek.

And the Federation ships again don't have that Trek look but that's me,as for the Discovery itself well words just fail me when it comes to that ship.

And I thank you for your apology.
