(written from a Production point of view)
In partnership with Perfect World (Arc Games)/Cryptic Studios and authorized and licensed by CBS Consumer Products, it is available from company webshops and other specialty retailers in a number of countries worldwide.
Each issue includes a magazine and a hand-painted  four to six inch-long ABS and die-cast metal scaled replica of a starship from Star Trek Online, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
A twenty-page magazine (measuring 145 × 183 mm) fits within the windowbox package (beneath the model) and commonly features three main sections, including an "in-universe" profile of the starship, a behind-the-scenes exploration of the ship's design history, and an article about broader STO lore.
A 50%-off coupon for a Tier 6 starship for the video game is included with each issue.

Ben Robinson, John Ainsworth, and Thomas Marrone (β), the project's managers, utilize the original CGI models from the video game as reference for the miniatures and for many of the illustrations and orthographic views within the magazine.
Marrone, the lead artist for the game's Starship and UI art teams and a STO starship designer in his own right, is the lead art editor, the creator of many renders for the magazine, the source of paint guides of the game's CG models, and the author of the text content. Ainsworth coordinates the commissioning, CAD prototyping, decoration, tooling, and production of the physical miniatures.  Notably, a variety of ship designs from the game, including many by designers Marrone, Hector Ortiz (β), and Ian Richards (β), are being mass-produced as miniatures for the first time.
Developed from Adam Ihle's prize-winning Odyssey-class design for the game's 2011 Design the Next Enterprise contest, Eaglemoss/Hero Collector has previously manufactured two starship miniatures of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-F (β) (in two distinct liveries) as Bonus Editions within its Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection partwork.
This series is a sister publication of The Official Starships Collection, Discovery Starships Collection, Build The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D, and Star Trek Universe: The Official Starships Collection partworks.

- The models are painted freehand and with the use of paint masks (templates), alongside pad and tampo printing processes. The earliest prototypes are 3D printed in resin and, once approved by Eaglemoss, Perfect World, and CBS, the models are manufactured by the Holinail Group in China using a variety of injection, vacuum, and compression molding techniques.
