(written from a Production point of view)
Each fortnightly issue includes a hand-painted ABS and die-cast metal scaled replica of a starship from the Star Trek universe. Most notably, an unparalleled variety of ship designs have been produced as miniatures for this line, many for the first time, far beyond the scope of all previous and current manufacturers.
For starship designs without available digital 3D models (or when production-used models are deemed unsuitable for practical use), designers including Rob Bonchune, Doug Drexler, John Eaves, Sean Hargreaves, Greg Jein, "Mojo" Lebowitz, Mike Okuda, Andrew Probert, Mark Rademaker, Rick Sternbach, and Sean Tourangeau have built or assisted in the construction of new ones, or have provided background material about their designs.
Robinson is a Fact Files veteran and custodian of his own Star Trek production art archive. He oversees the preparation of the magazines, the commissioning and decoration of the starship miniatures, and co-writes the magazines with Marcus Riley.
The 3D starship models are converted into tooling masters at the Holinail Group, Eaglemoss' manufacturing partner in Shenzhen, 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.
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.
Special editions, resin dedication plaques, binders, and hardcover book compilations have been produced. Gift premiums were also released to subscribers.
By subscription, at company webshops, and through retailers, issues are available in a number of countries worldwide. Most products are retailed by newsagents and booksellers, and by comics, collectibles, and gaming shops affiliated with Diamond Comic Distributors.

Oversized/XL Edition special issues Edit
In October 2016, the project manager announced that models of "all of the Enterprises" and other "hero ships" would also be produced in a larger size than the standard and bonus issues.
Following the successful roll-out of the first three of these "Oversized" (or "Large Scale" or "XL") issues to subscribers and retail, the project manager indicated that "at least twelve" of them (in total) were now slated for production.
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, at a lower price point.
An issue is slated to be released every two months.

Shuttlecraft issues Edit
Initially, shuttlecraft issues were previewed to subscribers in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg in January 2015. In those countries, "Premium" subscribers (who have paid a small additional monthly fee) receive a shuttle every twenty issues. The first shuttle reached subscribers in November 2015. 
The first four shuttlecraft saw a small initial production run and were initially available only as a four-pack in other markets. These ships may be offered as individual issues at a later time and alternate deco variants of them may also be manufactured in the future, if further production runs occur.  The shuttles are made of metallic resin, include stands, and are individually packaged within the four-pack box.
An eight-page booklet (measuring 150 × 210 mm) which 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. The third shuttlecraft four-pack includes schematic sheets created by Rick Sternbach and Tim Earls.

Starship sets Edit
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 third set's booklet has sixty-five pages to accommodate the content for the four-pack's extra ship. The models are identical to their earlier releases (as regular issues) and are packaged individually within the outer box.
| Mirror Universe Ships ||see||above|
Starship dedication plaques Edit
Painted metallic resin starship dedication plaques are made available through the webshops and retail outlets. The first release was previously distributed to subscribers as a gift premium.
|(1)||USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D Dedication Plaque
|(2)||USS Voyager Dedication Plaque
|(3)||Star Trek: Deep Space Nine USS Defiant Dedication Plaque
|(4)||USS Enterprise NCC-1701 Dedication Plaque
|(5)||Enterprise NX-01 Dedication Plaque
|(6)||USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E Dedication Plaque
|(7)||USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A Dedication Plaque
|(8)||USS Franklin NX-326 Dedication Plaque
Gift premiums Edit
Gift premiums (known here as "loyalty gifts") have been delivered to subscribers. These free items 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.
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' webshops.
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.

Designing Starships reference books Edit
In October 2016, Eaglemoss premiered the first volume of a hardcover reference book series which was primarily comprised of starship design articles compiled from the Collection's individual magazines, alongside some new 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 fourth volume, incorporating concept art from DS9, is planned for 2018.
- Star Trek: Designing Starships Volume One
- Star Trek: Designing Starships Volume Two
- Star Trek: Designing Starships The Kelvin Timeline
Premium magazine bindersEdit
Premium binders with starship illustrations on their covers have been made available to supplement the standard binder design (as seen above).
UK test marketing Edit
The first five issues were test-marketed at retail in England's South West region beginning in May 2012. The company's website also began to solicit UK subscriptions at that time. 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 Edit
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 the 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.
The starship models produced by the closed factory later appeared in large-volume online auctions from Hong Kong and the USS Enterprise-D models were 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 display paintwork that differs markedly from 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.
COMAG UK distributes subscription mailings in the UK and Ireland. Most products are also available through Diamond Comics-affiliated shops. Later printings of the magazine may follow a different sequence or have alternate issue numbers printed on their covers.
International marketing Edit
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, 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), and 25 December 2017 (to 160).
A small number of models with minor painting errors have had these paint issues 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..
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 and only regular issues are available to Japan through De Agostini. An extension of the magazine to 110 issues was confirmed in October 2016. Imported special editions and plaques are available through other retailers in Japan.
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 appears to have ceased again, later in the year.
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.. 
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 EuropeEdit
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, 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. 
Future issues Edit
Project manager Ben Robinson does not discount the possibility of further issues. In a Q&A session on his Twitter page, he 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!"
Eaglemoss plans to continue to focus on canon starship designs and,  like prior releases, most upcoming starship "variants" will not simply be repaints of existing designs but will instead feature newly-created toolings (or parts) which reflect hull modifications made by Star Trek's original production staff. As before, "battle-damaged" starship decos are not generally planned.
Regarding future plans, 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. "Roughly half" of the upcoming starships will be from the Federation, with an eye on producing all Starfleet starships seen on-screen. Eaglemoss also hopes to produce all of the ships seen in the remastered Original Series.
The rest of the starships seen in the Battle of Wolf 359 will join the collection and there will be additional ships from Deep Space Nine, The Motion Picture, Insurrection, and the Delta Quadrant. Due to the immense popularity of previous ships named Enterprise that were produced for the Collection, at least four more are forthcoming. Three more USS Voyager variants may be produced  and a Star Trek: The Animated Series starship "mini series" within the partwork is under consideration. 
More "soft canon" special editions will be produced. Following the enthusiastic response by collectors to the Titan and Aventine releases, more non-canon starships will be made as bonus issues. A fan survey to help select some of these upcoming releases went live in November 2017. 
The Collection was expanded to 160 regular issues on 25 December 2017. 
Best of the Star Trek: The Official Starships CollectionEdit
Initially launching with twelve issues in early 2018, Eaglemoss plans to release a sub-line featuring its most popular previously-released regular issues in new window-box packaging (with a J-hook).
Scaled to fit into the box beneath the model, a smaller twenty-page magazine will be included with each issue.

- ↑ 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 issue 21 of the Collection, alongside the beauty views of the later Star Trek Nemesis version created by Digital Domain. (See: Sovereign-class model)
- ↑ New or replacement 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, 95, 100, M1, SP3, SP4, SP5, and SP7.  
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,  and SP1.
- ↑ The magazine states the size of the Prometheus is 126m but other sources (and its onsceen appearances) indicate that a more appropriate size for the ship is 415m, placing the scale at 1:2964.
- ↑ The magazine states the size of the Bajoran Raider is 33.1m but other sources (and on-screen appearances) indicate that a more appropriate size for the ship is 8.5m, placing the scale at 1:71.
- ↑ The dimensions of the Borg Queen's ship are not stated in the magazine. Scale is based on length/beam of 820.4 m published in the Star Trek: Starship Spotter reference book.
- ↑ A model of the apocryphal SS Yorktown premiered at the New York Comic-Con and the Destination Star Trek Europe conventions in October 2016. A magazine was not included.  Subscribers were able to purchase the ship at a discount  and some remaining "limited stock" was retailed as a webshop exclusive.   In total, five thousand units were produced as a limited edition.
- ↑ 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.
- ↑ 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 USS Defiant model features phosphorescent paintwork to simulate the starship's appearance when it became trapped in Interphase.
- ↑ 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 cover indicates that this release is a "Special issue" but it is actually sized to fit within the "Bonus issue" parameters (120 to 140 mm, like the regular issues) and is listed here as such.
- ↑ The scale of the USS Enterprise-C Probert concept model was calculated using Andrew Probert's scale chart which was posted at Ex-Astris Scientia. The chart indicated that the "real" ship was intended to be 1721 feet (or 525 m) long. This information was not stated in the magazine. 
- ↑ A version of the Adam/McQuarrie-designed Planet of the Titans USS Enterprise (which briefly appeared on-screen as an unidentified background ship) is also slated be manufactured as a special edition, once legal issues are clarified. Another iteration of the study model of the ship is also planned as a regular issue.
- ↑ 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 Type-7 shuttlecraft was constructed from Andrew Probert's concept design which appeared on LCARS displays.
- ↑ In conjunction with the expansion from seventy to ninety issues, Robinson was able to divulge at a later time 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 hardware and software that no longer exists. 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.
