Note: this image is a painting rather than CGI, as is customary for Eaves.

Background information

  • The cover featured repurposed imagery that Doug Drexler had originally created in 2013 as box cover art for a model kit (No. POL902) from Polar Lights.
  • The starfield background of Cushman's technifold is created by Ali Ries, and is accompanied by orthographic size comparison blueprint views of the Bird-of-Prey and the original USS Enterprise (NCC-1701), created by Gary Kerr and Petri Blomqvist.
  • This was the first outing in the Ships of the Line calendar series that did not see a variant edition release by Danilo Promotions Limited for the UK and the Commonwealth since this version's introduction in 2013. It is not known whether or not this was a conscious company bussiness decision or that the release waiver was in any way related to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
