Star Trek: Discovery The Official Starships Collection...

Is a monthly British partwork magazine and product line that premiered on 31 January 2018 and is published by Eaglemoss Collections under its Hero Collector imprint.

A sister publication of the Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection, Build The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D, and Star Trek Online Starships Collection partworks, it is authorized and licensed by CBS Consumer Products, debuted simultaneously in the US and the UK, and is marketed to a number of countries worldwide.

Products are available through subscription (where applicable[1]), through the company's international webshops, and from many other retailers, including Diamond Comic Distributors, Anovos, and ThinkGeek/GameStop. [11] [12]

Each standard issue includes a (roughly) six to ten inch-long (150 to 240 mm-long) hand-painted [2] scaled replica of a starship from the Star Trek: Discovery series. Cast in ABS and die-cast metal, a number of starship designs have been reproduced here (as miniatures) for the first time by any manufacturer. Available separately, larger Special Edition starship models, metallic resin dedication plaques, dedicated magazine binders, and a figurine have been produced. Gift premiums have also been released to subscribers.

Ben Robinson, the project's senior manager, and his team, under the supervision of John Ainsworth, utilize the original CGI studio models provided by Pixomondo for reference, once they have been approved by CBS Studios and Secret Hideout, the show's primary production companies, and the VFX team. [13] [14] [15] [16]

Robinson and Ainsworth have their longtime Official Starships Collection associate Fabio Passaro convert these models into LightWave 3D, Eaglemoss' software package of choice, as the production-used models are created in Autodesk Maya and must be re-texturized, rescaled, and modified for 3D printing. Passaro then converts these 3D models into CAD files. [17] [18] [3]

At the Holinail Group, Eaglemoss' manufacturing partner in China, [19] these files are converted into the CAD format used by the factory and tooling masters are created. Two-dimensional renders of the ships are frequently used for the publication's illustrations by its editors in the UK, and each sixteen-page A5 format magazine (measuring 168 × 217 mm, [4] half the size of those of the preceding Official Starships Collection) fits within the printed cardboard boxes that the models are presented in.

The magazines are co-authored and co-edited by Ben Robinson, Marcus Riley, and Matt McAllister. Production stills, concept art, and newly-created orthographic views are utilized extensively, and new interviews with DIS starship designers including William Budge, Goran Delic, Ryan Dening, JD Dickenson, John Eaves, Sam Michlap, Thomas Pringle, and Scott Schneider were conducted.

Some of the magazine content was published by Eaglemoss under the Hero Collector imprint, and was distributed by Penguin Random House in two hardcover mass-market reference books from the Star Trek: Shipyards series, within the Starfleet Ships 2151-2293 and The Klingon Fleet volumes. [20]

Also incorporating some of this material, the Star Trek: Discovery Designing Starships volume of the Designing Starships book series features every starship from Discovery's first season and was published in September 2019. [21]

Transition to the Star Trek Universe: The Official Starships Collection
In July 2020, the company announced that this product line (and subscriptions) would be suspended after the release of (numbered) issue 33, due to production delays with the third season of the show and the resulting lack of new CG assets.

In October 2020, Eaglemoss further reported that it had plans to release more starship models from DIS in a future starships line, combined with ships from Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

It was subsequently named the Star Trek Universe: The Official Starships Collection which debuted in March 2021. [22] The company has revealed a number of forthcoming 32nd century Federation starship models from the third season of DIS for the new partwork, which supersedes this line. [23] Subscription services for the original line were terminated, and customers who wanted to continue with their collection had to take out a new subscription on the Universe collection.

Larger XL Edition models featuring starships from Discovery continued to be released within the Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection.
