Starships Collection issues 61-65 revealed, and more

Eaglemoss' Hero Collector website has a new post revealing five more ships in the line-up for the magazine and model series, The Official Starships Collection. Continue below for the details of those issues, and more news from The Collection.

The newly confirmed issues start with the Norway class, the last of Alex Jaeger's First Contact fleet in the series, which will be issue sixty-one. This will be out in early December in the UK, with the US following in January, and other region getting it as the series catches up.

Sixty-two will be the smaller of the two Voth ships from Voyager's Distant Origin, Professor Gegen’s research vessel. Hopefully we can still look forward to the huge city ship later in the series.
Sixty-three is a design which originated from The Animated Series, and then with the addition of a crew compartment became the Antares in the remastered version of Charlie X. This will be the first 2016 issue of the series, due out in the UK early in January next year.
Issue sixty-four is Zefram Cochrane's warp ship, the Phoenix. The rendering here doesn't have the final textures or lighting yet.
And issue sixty-five is the second Xindi starship in the collection, the massive Xindi Aquatic ship.
Not content to give us only five ships to look forward to, the series manager, Ben Robinson also revealed, on his Twitter, that issue seventy-three will be the renegade Borg ship from Descent. The Collection will use this new CGI model by Fabio Passaro, and being several issues ahead of the other announcements this one is a long way from release, not due in the UK until May next year!

And that's not all Ben has let on in his recent tweets. When asked about the possibility of The Collection featuring the Peregrine class fighter he replied:
I don't think you'll be disappointed. There's the little fighters from First Duty too…
He also gave a positive response to requests for Kazon and Vidiian ships, and offered some speculation on which nuTrek ships we might see after the USS Kelvin and NX-refit specials:
I figure the Jellyfish would be the next JJ ship. Or maybe the Klingon battlecruiser from the Kobayashi Maru
Speaking of nuTrek Klingons, the D4 class has just recently arrived in the UK (a great model and very interesting magazine), and Ben posted this new photo of the model to mark the release:

And finally a new rendering of the Enterprise-C; there wasn't room for this particular image in the magazine, which is due out in the UK in about a month, as issue forty-six.

In other news, the USS Titan petition has passed another milestone, with over three-and-a-half-thousand names now requesting it be included in The Collection. That means we only need one-and-half-thousand more Titan fans to reach the five-thousand target which should allow an extra issue to be commissioned.

The more recently launched USS Aventine petition has also clocked up several hundred supporters already.
