Star Trek: Ships of the Line (2016) is the 2016 edition of the Star Trek: Ships of the Line calendar series.


Publisher's description
A longtime favorite among hardcore Trekkers and sci-fi fans, Star Trek: Ships of the Line 2016 Wall Calendar is a unique collectors addition celebrating the landmark 50th anniversary and gives aficionados something they cannot get elsewhere – spectacular original illustrations showcasing the franchise's most famous starships and vessels.
The characteristic horizontal format maximizes detail in the up-close views of each ship and puts the viewer right in the center of the iconic moments from Star Trek history, but remains a practical addition to any workspace.

Background informationEdit

  • Artists for this year's calendar were selected by a panel of judges through a contest held by
  • This was the fourth outing in the Ships of the Line calendar series, which saw an internationally released variant edition by Danilo Promotions Limited for the UK and the Commonwealth. As with the second outing, it was a reprint of the one year prior US 2015 edition, with the same contents, though, again, there were some slight editorial differences; the UK edition lacked the centerfold, but the interior art was less encumbered with text imprint as the individual dates were printed on the bottom in a separate bar.
