Star Trek: Discovery - The Official Starships Collection

Page created 24th September 2017. Last updated 28th February 2021.

Star Trek: Discovery - The Official Starships Collection is a series of model starships with accompanying magazines, published by Eaglemoss from early 2018 until early 2021. It is a spin-off series from the long running Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection, focusing solely on Discovery.

The series follows the same basic structure as the original Starships Collection, with each issue including a model starship, and a magazine detailing the ship from both an in-universe and production point of view. The models are larger than standard size in the former collection however (similar sized to the occasional "special" issues of the previous series), and are released monthly (rather than fortnightly).

With initial plans for twenty issues, the series ultimately released thirty-three regular issues, four specials, and two bonus variants. Future Discovery ships will continue to be released as part of the wider Star Trek Universe collection.
