Summary

Solicitation blurb
STAR TREK SHIPYARDS: THE DELTA QUADRANT: Ledosian to Zahl is the second of two volumes that profile the ships from STAR TREK: VOYAGER.
This volume profiles more than 50 ships that Voyager encountered in the Delta Quadrant, among them the Lokirrim Warship, the Species 8472 Bioship, and the Vidiian Warships.
With technical overviews and operational histories, the ships are illustrated with CG artwork, created using the original VFX models made for the STAR TREK: VOYAGER TV series.
With previously unseen artwork, the two official volumes form the most comprehensive account of ships from STAR TREK: VOYAGER ever produced.
Be sure to also look for Volume 1: The Borg and Delta Quadrant: Akritirian to Krenim, which features the ships of the Borg, and includes the Borg Cube and Borg Sphere, Borg Queen's Ship, the Renegade Borg Vessel and the Borg Tactical Cube, in addition to thirty-five ships of the Delta Quadrant species.

Background information

Pre-publication draft cover

  • The book is principally composed of "in-universe" starship profile articles produced for Eaglemoss Collections' Official Starships Collection partwork, combined with expanded text content and new artwork, charts, and articles.
  • Co-editor Ben Robinson characterized the book series as an attempt to create "an equivalent of Jane's Fighting Ships for Star Trek". [1]
  • For this book and its companion Delta Quadrant volume, the company is creating new CG starship models for those few VOY ships that were solely created as practical (physical) studio models. [2]
  • Bernd Schneider and (MA admin) Jörg Hillebrand of Ex Astris Scientia, the noted Star Trek reference website, have assisted CG modeler Fabio Passaro by providing reference material for many of these alien vessels and lesser-known "ships of the week". [3] [4]
  • The pre-publication title for this book was "Star Trek: Shipyards - The Delta Quadrant: Ledosian to Zahl".
