(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection is a British partwork magazine that is published by Eaglemoss Collections under its Hero Collector imprint. Authorized and licensed by CBS Consumer Products, it is available in a number of countries worldwide.
Each fortnightly  issue includes a hand-painted  ABS and die-cast metal scaled replica of a starship from the Star Trek universe. Notably, an unparalleled variety of ship designs have been produced as miniatures for this line, many for the first time, beyond the scope of all other mass-production manufacturers.
Ben Robinson, the project's manager, utilizes original CGI studio models for reference whenever they are available. A Star Trek Fact Files veteran, reference book author, and custodian of his own Star Trek production art archive, Robinson oversees the preparation of the magazines and the selection, commissioning, and decoration of the starship miniatures. He is a co-author and editor of the magazine content, alongside Marcus Riley, another former member of the Fact Files team, and Mark Wright.
For starship designs without available digital 3D models (or when production-used models are deemed unsuitable for practical use), designers including Rob Bonchune, Dan Curry, Daren Dochterman, Doug Drexler, Pierre Drolet, John Eaves, Sean Hargreaves, Alex Jaeger, Greg Jein, "Mojo" Lebowitz, Michael Okuda, Andrew Probert, Mark Rademaker, Rick Sternbach, Sean Tourangeau, and "Meni" Tsirbas have built or assisted in the construction of new ones, or have provided background material about their designs.
|Starship models re-scaled to in-universe dimensions|
The 3D starship models are converted into tooling masters at the Holinail Group,  Eaglemoss' manufacturing partner in Dongguan, China, and 2D renders are often used for the publication's illustrations by its editors in the UK.
Reference photographs of studio models, production stills, concept art, and newly-created orthographic views are also used extensively.
Printed in Italy, each accompanying twenty-page magazine (measuring 220 × 285 mm) features comprehensive articles about the design, filming and on-screen appearances of the original studio model(s).
New interviews were conducted with a number of Star Trek cast members and production staff for the publication. Detailed "in-universe" information about the vessel's history, crew, weapons, and technology is also included. An online version of each issue is made available to subscribers.
Bonus, Special and XL Editions, Shuttlecraft sets, resin dedication plaques, magazine binders, and hardcover reference books are available, separate from the fortnightly releases. Gift premiums were also provided to subscribers.
Issues are available by subscription, at the company's webshops, and through retailers, where available. Most products are also retailed by newsagents and booksellers, and by comics, collectibles and gaming shops affiliated with Diamond Comic Distributors. Anovos, Sideshow Collectibles, ThinkGeek/GameStop, and other retailers also market a number of releases from this partwork and its Discovery spin-off. Loot Crate also released a number of Standard Edition models in its Star Trek Mission Crate subscription box line.

Bonus Edition issues
Bonus Edition issues commonly feature registry variants and "extended canon" starship models, incorporating concept designs, model ships, ships seen only on background displays, and designs originating from comics, novels, video games (Star Trek Online), and Ships of the Line calendars.
The models are in the Standard Edition size range (about four to six inches long), commonly debut at Eaglemoss' Hero Collector convention booths, and are currently available exclusively from company webshops.
The SS Yorktown and Future USS Enterprise-D releases did not include magazines.

Special Edition issues
Eaglemoss received licensing to release starships from Star Trek's alternate reality (officially known as the Kelvin Timeline since 2016) as Special Editions, alongside unique starships and space stations from Star Trek's prime reality.
Made of the same materials as the Standard Editions, most Special Edition models are about six to eight inches long, and subscribers receive a small discount if purchasing them when they debut. The seventeenth release featured battery-powered internal lighting.
Commencing in 2018, a number of these releases began to be retailed by Anovos as the "Star Trek Collectible Scale Starships" line.  ThinkGeek/GameStop also began to promote and distribute them in early 2019.

XL Edition issues
A number of "significant" starships from the Star Trek universe have also been produced in a larger size than the Standard, Bonus and Special Editions. Released as XL Editions, these models generally measure between eight-and-a-half and twelve inches long. The company has plans for twenty-two XL issues, as of August 2019.
Following the successful roll-out of the first three of these "Oversized" (or "Large Scale") issues to subscribers and retail, this sub-line was also marketed as the "Star Trek Starships XL Edition" and was launched as a separate subscription partwork on Eaglemoss' US website. 
Commencing in 2018, a number of these releases began to be retailed by Anovos as the "Star Trek Collectible XL Edition Starships" line.  They are also retailed by ThinkGeek/GameStop and Sideshow Collectibles.

Shuttlecraft models are smaller than the other releases and are made of metallic resin. Each includes a small standardized stand, and is individually packaged within a four-pack box.
Presently, shuttle issues are available only in four-packs in all markets.
In January 2015, shuttle issues were previewed to subscribers in Germany. By adding the "Premium" subscription option (for a small monthly fee), subscribers received a new shuttle every twenty issues. The first shuttle reached these subscribers in November 2015. 
Ships may be offered as individual issues later and alternate deco (or registry) variants may be manufactured in the future, if further production runs occur. 
An eight-page booklet (measuring 150 × 210 mm) that exclusively contains "in-universe" information accompanies each model. It features master systems display illustrations (okudagrams) newly created for each issue by Mike Okuda.
These schematics are also printed onto translucent plastic sheets (measuring 120 × 80 mm) which can be mounted on (included) plastic clip stands.
In October 2018, the project manager indicated that the company hopes to manufacture at least twelve more shuttlecraft issues (in three sets), encompassing Federation and non-Federation shuttles, probes, and other small spacecraft.
Since then, two sets have been released to retail.

Each set includes a fifty-page booklet (measuring 168 × 216 mm) which contains content covering all of the starships in the set, compiled from the previously released individual magazines as detailed above. The booklet for both versions of the third set has sixty-five pages to accommodate the content for the fourth ship. All models are identical to their earlier releases (as Standard or Bonus Editions) and are packaged individually within the outer box.
Best of the Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection
Debuting exclusively in North America in February 2018, Eaglemoss re-released twelve of its most popular Standard Edition issues in new windowbox packaging with attached J-hooks, enabling the boxes to be hung on pegs at retailers. The models within were identical to their earlier releases.
Scaled to fit into the box beneath the model, a downsized twenty-page booklet accompanied each starship and its stand. Each "collector's guide" (measuring 144 × 182 mm) had the same content as the original full-sized magazine (as detailed above) but the issue number was not printed on the cover. This packaging style was later used for the cloaked USS Defiant con exclusive and some re-releases in the Americas.
Gift premiums (known here as "loyalty gifts") are sent to subscribers and include a binder for holding the magazines, a cast-resin USS Enterprise-D dedication plaque, a three-nacelled Future USS Enterprise-D model, and a battery-powered, LED-illuminated PVC Borg Cube. An enamel starship pin was added as a gift in June 2018 but it was superseded by a pair of steel bookends in September 2018.
In Japan, early subscribers received a smaller LED-illuminated PVC Borg Cube after De Agostini, the magazine's local publisher, "declined" to release the UK version of the Borg Cube and manufactured their own. De Agostini also released a key ring as a gift, in lieu of the UK's free magazine binder.
Although they were initially advertised as subscriber "exclusives", the UK version of the Borg cube, the Enterprise-D plaque, and the Future Enterprise-D model were later retailed to the general public through Eaglemoss' UK and US webshops. Magazines were not produced for these models.
Distribution issues have resulted in some subscribers receiving their gift premiums months later than the scheduled intervals indicated on the magazine's subscription sites. Nonetheless, the magazine's Terms and Conditions state that the company has the right to modify this schedule (and the gifts) unilaterally. For American and Canadian subscriptions, the gift premiums are scheduled for much later subscriber milestones than is the case with all other territories.

Starship dedication plaques
Painted scaled metallic resin starship dedication plaques that were designed for the collection by Michael Okuda are made available through the webshops and retail outlets.
The first release was distributed to subscribers earlier, as a gift premium. Commencing in September 2018, US subscribers who opt for a "Platinum" subscription will receive a plaque every ten issues, for an additional ongoing fee.
In late 2018, the company indicated that a "few more" dedication plaques were being planned.

Designing Starships series
In October 2016, Eaglemoss debuted the first volume of the Star Trek: Designing Starships series, a line of hardcover reference books that are primarily comprised of starship design articles compiled from the Collection's individual magazines, alongside some new artwork and content.
A second 160-page volume was published in April 2017 and a third volume, consisting of material culled exclusively from the alternate reality now known as the Kelvin Timeline, was released in November 2017.
A mass-market edition of the first volume, subtitled The Enterprises and Beyond, was published by Penguin Random House in October 2018. The second mass-market volume, subtitled The USS Voyager and Beyond, was republished in January 2019, and the third was re-released in April 2019. The fourth mass-market volume featured starships from Star Trek: Discovery and debuted at retail in September 2019.

Star Trek: Shipyards, subtitled The Encyclopedia of Star Trek Ships, is a mass-market hardcover reference book series that presents an in-universe chronological history of canon starships, and is published by Penguin Random House.
Volumes are principally comprised of starship profile articles produced for the two Starships Collection partworks, combined with new artwork, charts and articles. The series was characterized by Ben Robinson as an effort to create "an equivalent of Jane's Fighting Ships for Star Trek". 
The first book premiered on 25 September 2018 and one edition included a model of the USS Enterprise from (Standard Edition) issue 50 of the Starships Collection.  The second volume was published on 13 November 2018,  the third on 1 May 2019, and the fourth on 19 November 2019.  
Starships from the alternate reality (Kelvin Timeline) and TAS are not covered in this series, and ships seen only on displays will not be incorporated. A future volume will explore starships from the Delta Quadrant.
Debuting in November 2019, the "limited edition" Star Trek: Shipyards - Starfleet & the Federation Box Set included a specially-designed slipcase, a fold-out starship size chart (a 35 × 25-inch poster), and the first, second, and fourth volumes of the series. 
In March 2020, Ben Robinson announced that a fifth volume is under development. It will explore "every" Borg vessel and starship seen in the Delta Quadrant, and the company is creating new CG starship models for those few VOY ships that were solely created as practical (physical) studio models.  It is scheduled for release in November 2020.

The first volume of the mass-market hardcover Illustrated Handbook reference series comprehensively explores the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D starship and its history, technology, and crew, incorporating updated content from the Star Trek Fact Files. 
The second volume features the USS Enterprise and USS Enterprise-A, as they were seen in The Original Series, Discovery, and feature films.  A model of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A (from Standard Edition issue 72) is included with the book in the Special Edition, and both debuted in October 2019.
A third volume will focus on the USS Voyager starship and is scheduled for publication in July 2020.  A model of the ship (from Standard Edition issue 6) was slated to be included as part of a Special Edition but this printing was "postponed indefinitely" before publication. 
The forthcoming fourth volume is slated for release in August 2020 and will comprehensively explore the Deep Space 9 space station, the USS Defiant, and Danube-class runabouts from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The comic book was retailed exclusively from Eaglemoss/Hero Collector's New York Comic Con booth in October 2019, where writer Jody Houser and artist Nils Walter Khan autographed the covers for convention attendees. 
Eaglemoss/Hero Collector also retails the Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection partwork, which encompasses a number of IDW's Star Trek titles and a wide range of releases from other comic book publishers.
Premium magazine binders
Premium binders with "Federation" and "Alien" starship illustrations on their covers have been made available to supplement the standard binder design (as seen above).
Originally released as a "limited edition" exclusive in December 2014, a binder featuring an embossed gold cover logo  (left) was retailed for a brief period and not reprinted later. The "Federation" binder (center), another "limited edition" release, later became available from company webshops on an ongoing basis.
Star Trek: Discovery The Official Starships Collection
Featuring starships from the Star Trek: Discovery series, Eaglemoss' Hero Collector brand launched the Star Trek: Discovery The Official Starships Collection magazine partwork, a monthly spin-off publication, in January 2018.
The starship models measure from about seventeen to twenty-five centimeters in length, comparable to some of the Special Editions from this collection. A larger Special Edition starship model, similar in size to an XL Edition release from this partwork, has also been released in this series, and more are planned.
As is detailed above, an XL Edition model of the USS Enterprise (as it appeared in Discovery) was released in this collection, and a smaller (215 mm) version of the was released as a standard issue of the DIS spin-off. Additionally, two more ships that originated in DIS are planned as XL Editions in this partwork, following smaller releases in the DIS collection.
Ben Robinson, the line's project manager, indicated in June 2019 that the company will manufacture starships from season 3 of Discovery.  In September 2019, he added, "I can tell you, every single ship that's appeared on Discovery is on the list", in reference to future plans for the line. 
Star Trek: The Next Generation Build The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D
In February 2019, the company launched the Star Trek: The Next Generation Build The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D, a new partwork featuring a seventy centimeter-long model of the USS Enterprise 1701-D.
Made from diecast metal and ABS and incorporating an electronic lighting kit, the model is constructed from individual issues that are released weekly.
At present, the partwork is suspended after a limited retail release of two test issues in the UK and the company's decision to retool the model before a relaunch.
Star Trek Online: The Official Starships Collection
On 25 October 2019, the company displayed the first two models from the Star Trek Online: The Official Starships Collection, a forthcoming partwork featuring Standard Edition-sized (four to six inch-long) starship models. Two more models were revealed in March 2020.
This collection will exclusively present starships from Star Trek Online, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and is expected to launch with the first of "at least ten" issues in May 2020.  .
Developed from a design originally commissioned for the game, Eaglemoss has previously manufactured two starship miniatures (in two distinct liveries) of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-F (β) as Bonus Editions within the first Starships Collection, as is detailed above.
UK test marketing
The first five issues were test-marketed at retail in England's South West region beginning in May 2012, and the company's website began to solicit UK subscriptions. Due to unexpected heavy demand and the resulting production and distribution challenges, new subscriptions were suspended at the end of July 2012.
Upon receipt of the first five issues, subscribers were advised that the magazine had been suspended and that confirmation of forthcoming issues from the publisher was pending. Gift premiums were not distributed to subscribers. This type of early "test release" is a common practice for partwork publishers, in order to gauge public interest.
UK and Ireland marketing
In September 2012, a Facebook page was established for the magazine and Eaglemoss subsequently announced that a full UK roll-out of the line was slated for February 2013. New subscriptions resumed on 17 September 2012 and the company confirmed that gift premiums and more issues were forthcoming. Residents of the Republic Of Ireland were added to the UK subscriber base in early 2013.
At the very inception of the project, a production run of fifty issues was foreseen,  but by the time the project was gearing up for its initial run, the company increased that number to seventy issues and it displayed a provisional list of them at the Destination Star Trek London convention in October 2012. Since this provisional list was first shown, a number of additional issues have been identified by the magazine's project manager through social media and interviews.
On 9 January 2013, the company announced that the line would be indefinitely placed on hiatus until a new manufacturer was found, following the closure of their contracted production facility by Chinese authorities.
Starship models produced with the toolings and paint masks from the closed factory subsequently appeared in large-volume online auctions from Hong Kong. The two USS Enterprise-D models were later dubbed "Shadyprise" variants by collectors, due to their somewhat shady origin. Notably, the early Klingon Bird-of-Prey, USS Enterprise-D and Future USS Enterprise-D models feature paintwork that differs markedly from the official releases.
In early April 2013, Eaglemoss sent emails to subscribers stating that the magazine was back in production at a new factory and indicated that shipping would resume in August 2013. This re-launch date was confirmed on the line's newly redesigned website in May 2013 and the first issue was re-released on 21 August 2013.
The Standard Edition-sized starship models are produced in "box scale", designed to fit within a standardized box size. The boxes for almost all of these starships (the Standard, Bonus and Shuttlecraft issues) measure 168 × 127 × 51 mm. Smaller (and taller) boxes (measuring 123 × 101 × 80 mm) were supplied for Standard issues 10, 58, 94, 96, 109, 127, and 146, and Bonus issue 22. A larger box (measuring 176 × 176 × 80 mm) was made for the Bajoran Solar-Sailor and another (measuring 164 × 138 × 86 mm) encompassed the Xindi-Insectoid Warship. The dimensions of the boxes for the Special and XL Edition starship models vary greatly.
In all cases, the model can be easily removed from (and put back into) the box without damaging the packaging or model whatsoever. There are no holes made in the models for the stands.
In the UK and Ireland, COMAG UK distributes subscriptions through the Royal Mail while DPD (UK) and the Royal Mail distributes webshop orders. Most products are also available through Diamond Comics-affiliated shops. Some later printings of the magazine may erroneously have alternate (or no) issue numbers printed on their covers.
Following the successful roll-out of the magazine in the UK and Ireland, Eaglemoss launched the magazine in a number of other territories worldwide. English-language magazines distributed outside of the UK are identical to the UK releases.
John Van Citters, the Vice President of CBS Consumer Products' Product Development division at the time, supervises the production of the magazine for the licensors and formally announced the expansion of the magazine to ninety regular issues at a panel on 2 August 2014 at the Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas. 
Further extensions were announced on 11 December 2015 (to 110), 4 September 2016 (to 130), 22 September 2017 (to 150), 25 December 2017 (to 160), and 3 August 2019 (to 180).
A small number of models were manufactured with minor painting errors that were corrected during subsequent production runs. Issues affected include 1, 9, 15, 16, and shuttle issue 08.
Aside from those countries where it had entered into joint ventures with established outside publishing partners (such as De Agostini in Japan), Eaglemoss has utilized Data Base Factory for its customer service, distribution, translation, and editorial services for the UK and non-English language areas. Data Base Factory is now a subsidiary of CCA International Inc..
The Collection was briefly seen in the 2018 "Star Trek" episode of the Netflix documentary series The Toys That Made Us, where it was characterized as an accurately reproduced product line from a latter-day company that is specifically aimed at adult collectors. It also opined that the line is not typical mass-market merchandise as it caters to a very specific niche in the collector market.
International distribution by country
Expand to view a list of countries and non-English-language magazine covers:
In Japan, the line is published and distributed by De Agostini and carries its imprint on the cover. The first six issues were retailed in 2012 in a test marketing run, similar to the UK's initial test release. De Agostini's subscriber website went live in April 2014 and the first issue was re-released on 20 May 2014.  The Japanese-language magazine's outer packaging and running order differ from the UK version. Only the 160 Standard Edition issues are available to Japan directly from De Agostini but other releases are imported by outside vendors.
In May 2013, the company launched its US website and American subscribers began to receive issues in October 2013. The line was also made available for retail sale by US retailers affiliated with Diamond Comics Distributors, Inc. in October 2013. A US webshop was also launched. Newgistics, Inc. distributes subscriptions.
Simultaneously with the US release, the line was made available to Canadian retailers through Diamond Comics commencing in August 2013 and issues began to reach shops in October 2013. The subscription website went live on 25 January 2014 and regular issues began to reach subscribers in May 2014. Coforce Inc. took over distribution in 2017.
Subscribers received up to issue 39 in February 2016 and encountered a year-long hiatus until distribution began again in February 2017 with the release of issues 40 and 41. Subscription distribution ceased again, later in the year, but resumed in March 2018. The US webshop became available to the residents of Canada in November 2018.
Early imported issues began to reach retailers in Australia beginning in December 2013. An Australian subscriber website went live in February 2014 and subscriptions and wide retail availability commenced on 31 March 2014. Some special editions and plaques have been offered to Australians by the distributor, Bissett Magazines Pty. Ltd..  
In July 2018, Eaglemoss announced that Bissett had gone into administration but a new distributor resumed subscriptions and webshop services in September 2018.
Imported early issues began to reach some New Zealand retailers beginning in December 2013 and a New Zealand subscriber website went live in August 2014. Subscriptions, a webshop, and wide retail availability commenced in October 2014. Netlink Subscriptions, a division of Netlink Distribution Co. Ltd., distributes the line.  Eight special editions are presently available to New Zealand.
After a five-issue test marketing run and website launch in early 2014, magazine subscriptions and a webshop were launched in Germany in January 2015. The German-language magazine's running order differed from the UK's until issue 28. It is distributed by Interabo GmbH.
Availability to Austria was included in Germany's online subscription and webshop launch.
Availability to Luxembourg was included in Germany's online subscription and webshop launch.
Availability to Switzerland was included in Germany's online subscription and webshop launch.
Dutch-language subscriptions for the residents of the Netherlands began in July 2015. No retail availability is planned but a webshop is available.
French-language subscriptions for the residents of France began in July 2015. No retail availability is planned but a webshop is available.
Subscriptions for the residents of Russia began in 2016. No retail availability is planned but a webshop is available.
No retail availability is planned but access to both the German and UK webshops is available to the residents of Belgium.
The rest of Europe
In 2016, many more European countries gained access to the UK webshop, including Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden. Residents of EU countries with existing webshops also have access to the UK webshop.
A truncated version of the series launched to Peru on 18 May and concluded on 19 July 2017. Ten Spanish-language regular issues were released in a unique running order and each magazine had ten pages. The series was distributed by Colecciones del Grupo El Comercio. 
Launched to Argentina as a limited (fifteen of the first sixteen UK issues, omitting the USS Voyager release) fortnightly series in a unique running order, the first ten-page Spanish-language issue premiered on 23 March 2018 and was distributed by Colecciones La Nación. This run was later extended to 22 issues.  
A limited number of products from the Collection became available through Eaglemoss' webshop to residents of South Africa in 2018. Subscriptions are not planned and products are distributed by Jacklin Enterprises (PTY) Ltd..
The US webshop became available to residents of Mexico in November 2018.
In a Q&A session on his Twitter page, project manager Ben Robinson wrote, "It's a question of economics, though. If enough people are buying, we'll keep going. We're already doing more ships than anyone ever imagined. Hurrah!" 
The project manager stated that he considers every Andorian, Borg, Dominion, Kazon, Klingon, Romulan, Suliban, Tellarite, Vidiian, Vulcan, and Xindi ship to be "essential" to the collection and aspires to produce all of the Federation ships seen on-screen.  A few Star Trek: The Animated Series ships may eventually reach production.
More "extended-" or "soft-canon" Bonus Editions will be produced, including newly-created models based on concept designs. More cloaked ships are under consideration. "Battle-damaged" versions of some starships may be made as XL Editions.
Registry variants will continue to be released as convention exclusives but all new classes of starship will remain available to subscribers and retail. Ben Robinson indicated that the company wanted to ensure that missed con exclusives would "not be too painful" for those who could not attend, while still providing something special for collectors.
Background starships from the alternate reality (Kelvin Timeline) will be released as Bonus Edition issues, following adjustments to licensing with CBS, and Eaglemoss is building new models because the films' producers did not have the original CG files in their archives. Ben Robinson also hopes that the producers of Star Trek Beyond will allow the company to manufacture a USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A model, something they declined to do in the past due to uncertainty about its future appearance.
Eaglemoss is also hoping to produce classic starship designs created by Franz Joseph and has worked on Enterprise concepts from the unrealized Planet of the Titans film but has not received legal authorization from CBS to proceed further, as of October 2019. Future starships from the older Star Trek films will likely be released as Special Editions, as of October 2019, due to the cost of producing all-new CG models and toolings from scratch.
As of September 2019, two new space stations are currently in production, and a new, large, and more detailed Borg cube model remains under development, as previous cube prototypes were deemed nonviable for mass production.  Display solutions for the collection are a priority and are in the planning stages.
In October 2019, the company announced that Standard Edition (numbered) issues will conclude with the publishing of issue 180, and planned to "fill in some gaps" within the last twenty. Bernd Schneider of Ex Astris Scientia, the noted Star Trek reference website, has assisted CG modeler Fabio Passaro by providing reference material for many of these alien ships and lesser-known "ships of the week".  EAS mainstay and MA admin Jörg Hillebrand also contributed reference material for these issues.  After a "short break", more of these issues (mainly featuring TNG ships) will be released after the conclusion of the Standard Edition line.  Eaglemoss reiterated that Bonus and Special Editions will continue.
In May 2019, Eaglemoss representatives reconfirmed the project manager's earlier announcement that it would produce starships from the Star Trek: Picard series,  and later stated that the models will be about the same size as those made for the DIS starships collection and will include larger Special/XL Editions. The first four sets of CG models from the show's starship assets were received in March 2020, and the first product, a model of La Sirena, is slated to reach retail approximately one year later. 
The following month, the project manager indicated that the company will also manufacture starships from Star Trek: Lower Decks, the untitled Section 31 series, and Nickelodeon's untitled Star Trek animated series. 
The Star Trek Online: The Official Starships Collection partwork is currently slated to debut in May 2020.

- Past issue 171, UK publication dates will be delayed and subscriptions will be serviced every six weeks instead of monthly, due to the effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus in China, as of 4 March 2020. 
- The models are painted freehand and with the use of paint masks (templates), alongside pad and tampo printing processes, while electro-plating is employed for the 18k gold-plated Enterprise-D release. The earliest prototypes are 3D printed in resin and, once approved by Eaglemoss and CBS, are manufactured using a variety of injection, vacuum, and compression molding techniques. 
- Ben Robinson has previously used live-action production CGI studio models to create illustrations for other licensed Star Trek print publications, in the process becoming, at least where the Star Trek franchise was concerned, a pioneer by doing so. He commissioned Rob Bonchune (and others) to render these models for use in the Star Trek Fact Files and its US magazine derivative. Robinson served as project manager, editor and writer of many issues of those publications (incidentally published by one of Eaglemoss Collections' two original constituent parts, GE Fabbri), foreshadowing his similar role at the Official Starships Collection.
Regarding the availability of production-used digital models, Robinson has stated, "There is an excellent archive of ships from Voyager and Enterprise. Less so with the other shows."  To alleviate this shortage of models, Robinson solicited the input of former Digital Muse Effects Supervisor David Lombardi, who turned out to still have a partial database of digital models that Digital Muse had specifically constructed for Deep Space Nine.   Years earlier, Lombardi had constructed a digital model of the Enterprise-E as Digital Muse's solicitation model for possible use in Star Trek: Insurrection, and it was his model that was used for the orthographic views in issues 21 and XL3 of the Collection, alongside the beauty views of the later Star Trek Nemesis version created by Digital Domain. (See: Sovereign-class model)
- CG models that Fabio Passaro's Meshweaver Productions has provided for the Collection, as identified online, include issues 12 (not a new build, but a re-rendered version of the Digital Muse model), 14, 20, 47, 54, 56, 61, 64, 73, 75, 79, 80, 85, 86, 91, 92, 93, 95, 96, 100, 104, 105, 108, 110, 114, 116, 118, 120, 122, 126, 127, 138, 143, 159, 161, M1, SP3, SP4, SP5, SP7, SP9, SP11, Bonus issues 05, 07, and 11, and Shuttle issues 05, 13, 14, 15 and 16. 
- Praised by Lebowitz for their high level of detail, Ed Giddings' pre-existing Centaur and Excelsior models, constructed for the canceled 2000 Unseen Frontier reference book project, were deemed as quite suitable for use in the Official Starships Collection, as was his 2010 spin-off build of the refitted Excelsior-class which he had built for Bonchune's USS Enterprise Owners' Workshop Manual reference book.  New or replacement CG models that Ed Giddings' Cgreactor has provided for the Collection, as identified online, include issues 8, 40, 42, 46, 52, 59, 90, 98, 103, 123, SP1, Bonus issues 08 and 19, and XL issue 17.
- The cover of the XL Edition of the Akira-class gives a different "real" ship length of 440 meters long rather than 464.43 meters, resulting in a scale of 1:3667.
- The "real" Solar-Sailor's length is given as 49 meters on the Starfleet & the Federation scale chart included with the Star Trek: Shipyards - Starfleet & the Federation Box Set, and was published in late 2019. Scale was calculated from this figure.
- The magazine states that the size of the Prometheus is 126 m (used for scaling here) but other sources (and its onsceen appearances) indicate that a more appropriate size for the ship is 415 m , placing the scale at 1:2964.
- The magazine states the size of the Bajoran Raider is 33.1 m (used here for scaling) but other sources (and on-screen appearances) indicate that a more appropriate size for the ship is 8.5 m , placing the scale at 1:71.
- The original studio model of the Academy Flight Trainer bore a (too small to be seen on-screen) Cobra logo (from G.I. Joe) as a nose marking. Hasbro, the owner of this design, "declined" Eaglemoss' request to use it for the starship model so a Red Squad logo was substituted.
- The dimensions of the Borg Queen's ship are not stated in the magazine. Scale is based on a length/beam of 820.4 m, as published in the Star Trek: Starship Spotter reference book.
- The remastered Eymorg ship's scale is based on an estimated length of 10 meters.
- The scale of Arctic One was based on the magazine's cover which stated the ship's length was 80 meters. As the assimilated version of the vessel is also deemed by the earlier magazine to be the same length, this version would be more appropriately sized at 60 meters, placing the scale at 1:480.
- The length of the Warship Voyager was not stated in the magazine so it was estimated at 348 meters long.
- A more appropriate length for the "real" Vaadwaur Fighter appears to be about 24 meters, placing the scale at 1:209. However, the stated length from the magazine was used here.
- According to a scale chart later created by the show's VFX supervisors, the Federation Tug is approximately 66 meters long, placing the scale at 1:733.  However, the stated length from the magazine was used here.
- Although the magazine cover states that the "real" T'Pau is 470 meters long, the 142.5 meter length printed on the poster included with Eaglemoss' Star Trek: Shipyards - Starfleet & the Federation Box Set was used for scaling here, as it appears to more accurately reflect the ships seen on-screen.
- The Fesarius' scale was based on an estimated diameter of 2,080 meters. The magazine's cover states the "real" vessel's diameter is "more than 1.6 km".
- As the lengths of the "real" USS Excelsior concept designs are not stated in the magazines, scale was based on the final ship's length of 467 meters.
- The size of the "real" D'Vahl is not stated in the magazine so scale was based on an estimated length of 30 meters.
- The sticker on the base of the Nebula-class USS Melbourne model's stand has "USS Nebula (Prototype)" printed on it.
- Like the other Nebula class variants, the USS Melbourne's magazine states that the "real" ship is 442.23 meters long, placing the scale of this model at 1:3810. However, due to the ship's extended hull and other configuration differences, Ex Astris Scientia's estimated length of 535 meters would more appropriately set the scale at 1:4612. 
- As the lengths of the "real" USS Excelsior concept designs are not stated in the magazines, scale was based on the final ship's length of 467 meters.
- Scale was based on an estimated length of 150 meters for the "real" Orion Interceptor.
- Scale of the Concept III model was calculated using the (final) "real" USS Excelsior's length of 467 meters.
- The length of the "real" Karemma starship was calculated using the Star Trek Fact Files' stated length of 380 meters.
- Erroneously, the sticker on the bottom of the Tamarian Deep Space Cruiser model's stand has "Karemma Starship" printed on it.
- Kes' "real" shuttle was estimated as 30 meters long for scaling purposes by Wixiban.com, the length of a previous incarnation of the ship when it appeared in 'Drive', as the ship's length was not provided in the magazine. 
- The "real" Denobulan Medical Ship was estimated as 23 meters long for scaling purposes by Wixiban.com, as the ship's length was not provided in the magazine. 
- The "real" Xindi-Insectoid Scout was estimated as 140 meters long for scaling purposes by Wixiban.com, based on a concept drawing in the magazine, as the ship's length was not provided in the issue. 
- The Bonus Edition issue numbers and sequence shown here were provided by Eaglemoss UK in October 2019, are substantially revised from earlier versions, and do not necessarily list the ships in the order of actual release.
- The Future USS Enterprise-D model was first released on 28 November 2013 as a gift premium for subscribers and later became available to the general public exclusively from Eaglemoss' UK and US webshops. A magazine was not included.
- A model of the apocryphal SS Yorktown model premiered at the New York Comic-Con and the Destination Star Trek Europe conventions in October 2016.  Subscribers were able to purchase it at a discount  and some remaining "limited stock" was retailed as a webshop exclusive.   In total, 5,000 models were produced as a limited edition and a magazine was not included.
- Following a successful online fan petition championed by The Trek Collective and Geekology,   models of the USS Titan (which primarily appears in Star Trek novels, video games and calendars) were produced. The original CGI model was designed by Sean Tourangeau and constructed by Ellery O'Connell, but the model was modified by Fabio Passaro for this collection.
- Following a successful online fan petition championed by The Trek Collective and Geekology,   models of the USS Aventine (which primarily appears in Star Trek novels, video games and calendars) were produced. The ship saw a very limited retail release, outside of Eaglemoss sources. The CGI model was constructed by the ship's designer, Mark Rademaker.
- Andrew Probert's USS Enterprise-C concept design appeared (in profile) in a six-ship relief sculpture of vessels named USS Enterprise, displayed on a wall in the USS Enterprise-D's observation lounge.
- The scale of the USS Enterprise-C Probert concept model was calculated using Andrew Probert's scale chart, indicating that that the "real" ship was intended to be 1721 feet (or 525 m) long.  This information was not stated in the magazine.
- The length of the "real" Phase II USS Enterprise is not stated in the magazine so scale was calculated using Kennedy Shipyards' specifications, placing the length of the ship at 301.55 m.  Designed for use in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Andrew Probert lengthened the Enterprise refit to a thousand feet (304.8 m), "just a few feet longer than it was", in reference to Matt Jefferies' Phase II ship dimensions. Computer screens also displayed the Phase II Enterprise design in the first two Star Trek films. (Designing a refit-Enterprise for Phase II)
- The USS Defiant model features phosphorescent paintwork to simulate the starship's appearance when it became trapped in Interphase. Chronologically, it was the seventh Bonus issue released but it is identified as the tenth in Eaglemoss' catalogs.
- Scale of the "real" Voyager concept ship was based on a length of 1,250 feet (381 m), as stated by Rick Sternbach on the Unofficial STSS Facebook page on 28 September 2018. 
- Following a successful online fan petition championed by The Trek Collective and Geekology,   models of the USS Bonaventure, which originated in the 2006 Ships of the Line calendar and its book derivatives, were produced. The CGI model was constructed by the ship's designer, Meni Tsirbas.
- The length of the "real" Bonaventure is not stated in the magazine so scale was based on an estimate of 265 meters.
- Both Enterprise-F models included an A5-sized printed insert bearing a code for a free Tier-5 Odyssey class (β) tactical cruiser and exclusive Ship Material and Ship Upgrade tokens for the Star Trek Online PC game. The magazines contain the same content but have different covers.
- Both Enterprise-F models included an A5-sized printed insert bearing a code for a free Tier-5 Odyssey class tactical cruiser and exclusive Ship Material and a Ship Upgrade tokens for the Star Trek Online PC game. The magazines contain the same content but have different covers.
- A limited edition of 2500 cloaked (translucent resin) USS Defiant models debuted on 3 October 2019 at the New York Comic Con, and was also retailed on the 25th of the month at the Destination Star Trek convention in Birmingham, England. A smaller magazine (measuring 144 × 182 mm) is included within its windowbox package.   
- The length of the "real" Conestoga is not stated in the magazine so scaling was based on an estimated length of 211 meters.
- The length of the "real" Klingon D4 concept is not stated in the magazine so scaling was based on an estimated length of 145 meters, equal to that of the Klingon Raptor.
- The diameter of the "real" Cardassian orbital weapons platform was not stated in the magazine and was estimated at 120 meters.
- From the proposed 8th season of DS9 as seen in the What We Left Behind documentary and named for Emmett Till, a 14 year-old African-American boy who was lynched in 1955. Designed by John Eaves.
- The Special Edition Deep Space 9 model does not include a display stand.
- The length of the "real" USS Enterprise from the 2009 film was not stated in the magazine. The ship was designed to be 366 m long but was scaled up by a factor of two for some sequences. 725.35 m (used here to calculate scale) is the length indicated by the film's Blu-ray disc. 
- The magazine's cover states that the Kelvin is 315 m long (used here to calculate scale) but the ship was also scaled at 457.2 m and 655 m during the film's production.
- Diameter of K-7 is not stated in the magazine. Scale calculated using Ex Astris Scientia's estimated (approximate) diameter of 450 m. 
- Length of the USS Enterprise XCV-330 is not stated in the magazine. Scale calculated using the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology's stated length of 300 m.
- The length of the Klingon Warbird is not stated in the magazine so scale was calculated using an estimated length of 350 m. 
- The "real" Kobayashi Maru's size is not stated in the magazine. Scale is based on Ex Astris Scientia's estimated length of 562 m. 
- Spacedock stands approximately 225 mm high when displayed on its stand.
- Scale derived from placing the "real" V'ger's length (after shedding its energy cloud) at 78,000 km, as stated in the novelization and seen in a film outtake. The magazine cover states the vessel's length is 300 million km, placing the scale at 1:1363636363636.
- The Planet Killer features internal electronic lighting, requiring two LR41 button cell batteries that are not included with the model.
- The Planet Killer model's scale was based on an estimated "real" length of 5 km.
- A magazine (with a typo in its title) was included with the 18 karat gold-plated USS Enterprise-D model that was released in the UK. The model began to be retailed by the US e-shop on 23 December 2019 but did not include a magazine when shipped. The model is enclosed in a Standard Edition box, within an outer sleeve that correctly identifies the product as the "Gold Model of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D".
- The size of the "real" Vulcan Warp Sled is not stated in the magazine so scaling was based on the 48 meter length printed on the poster included with Eaglemoss' Star Trek: Shipyards - Starfleet & the Federation Box Set.
- The final production version of the XL USS Thunderchild model does not have the ship's name printed on the saucer, in line with the studio model's appearance in First Contact. Inadvertently, a small number of models were released (mainly to Brazil) that had purple-painted impulse engines instead of grey. 
- Scale was calculated based on the "real" Akira-class' length being placed at 440 meters, as is printed on the XL magazine's cover. A length of 464.43 meters, as is printed in the Standard Edition magazine, was not used here but would result in a scale of 1:2101.
- The XL Edition Deep Space 9 model includes a display stand.
- The Type-7 shuttlecraft was constructed from Andrew Probert's concept design that appeared on LCARS displays, at the designer's request.
- The Med Evac shuttle model is marked as shuttle 43, a shuttle that didn't have a red livery in the film.
- This shuttlecraft is identified as a Galileo-type shuttlecraft by Memory Alpha.
- An early production run of this 2018 re-release erroneously omitted the USS Enterprise-B model and included the USS Enterprise-E model. Free replacement ships were provided to customers by the company.
- The bookends were previously released as a Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection gift premium and were added as gift premiums for new Starships Collection subscribers in September 2018.
- This enamel pin was previously released as a FanSets product and was added as a gift premium for new subscribers between June and August 2018.
- Illustrations of this limited edition binder originally showed an embossed silver logo on the cover.
- In conjunction with the expansion from seventy to ninety issues, Robinson later confirmed that former Star Trek Producer Dave Rossi had made the entire starship database of the remastered Original Series available to the publication.  From this acquisition, Robinson scored a coup for his project as it constituted the first time that the remastered Original Series ships, particularly those specifically constructed for the production,  were made available for products produced for the general public. This availability enabled Robinson to incorporate several of these into the starships lineup past issue 50 (including issues 60 and 63) and the run increase enabled him to slate more for release in later issues.  Rob Bonchune contributed new meshes for issues 57 (though strictly speaking, this was Bonchune revisiting the model he had already constructed for Robinson in 1999 which had made its debut in Star Trek: The Magazine Volume 1, Issue 4) and 62 , as the remastered TOS CG models had not reached Robinson by the time the models were first required. However, these models were not quite production-ready, as CBS Digital had used Autodesk Maya software for their CGI effects at the time and the models needed to be converted into LightWave 3D, the software package of choice for the vast majority of Star Trek digital modelers. Robinson assigned Fabio Passaro, among others, to this chore.  Ironically, CBS Digital had originally bought the majority of the "hero" ship models from Finnish digital modeler Petri Blomqvist but had to convert them to Maya as he had constructed his models in LightWave. (Sci-fi & fantasy modeller, Vol. 26, p. 48-50) If his models were to be used (such as for the planned Terran Empire Enterprise extra issue), then they need to be reconverted back into LightWave.
- Following an unsuccessful search and appeal to a number of past Star Trek production artists, it appears that the original CG models created for Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek Nemesis have been lost, necessitating Robinson's decision to commission all-new models for the Collection.   Robinson has also commented that some existing models may be in file formats that require computer software that no longer exists, sometimes due to the use of proprietary 3D software in the past. In addition, subsequent upgrades to LightWave software has resulted in alterations to the current appearance of some production-used models, as some legacy features (including some shaders) are no longer supported.
- A version of the Adam/McQuarrie-designed Planet of the Titans USS Enterprise study model (that was briefly seen on-screen as an unidentified background ship) has been slated be manufactured as a Standard Edition release, once legal issues are clarified by CBS, and Eaglemoss produced a CGI model of it in 2018. Another study model of the ship is also planned as a Bonus Edition issue. As of March 2020, the current status of these models has not been disclosed by Eaglemoss.
