Background information Edit

  • The book is principally composed of starship articles produced for the Official Starships Collection and its Discovery spin-off, combined with a number of new charts and articles.
  • Co-author Ben Robinson characterized the book series as an attempt to create "an equivalent of Jane's Fighting Ships for Star Trek". [1].
  • The pre-publication title of the book was Star Trek: Shipyards - Starfleet Ships 2063-2293.
  • While Eaglemoss' "regular" digital modelers, Fabio Passaro, Ed Giddings, Robert Bonchune, and Adam Lebowitz have received individual credits as "illustrators" (p. 192), none of Pixomondo's digital artists who worked on Star Trek: Discovery are named. The VFX company's name was substituted, whereas prior (digital) artists' names had generally been listed in earlier acknowledgements (p. 6). The lack of individual Pixomondo credits and acknowledgements is likely due to Passaro's work to re-render these models for the DIS partwork, as Pixomondo's Autodesk Maya CGI models needed to be converted into LightWave 3D, Eaglemoss' software package of choice.
