Alternate Krenim temporal weapon ship designs discovered
In the Voyager episode "Year of Hell," scientist-gone-mad Annorax possessed one of the most dangerous weapons in Star Trek, a temporal weapon ship. This giant vessel with its unique shape and beam that could literally push its target out of the space-time continuum almost did in Janeway and her crew. We all know what this ship looked like in the episodes, but as it turns out it wasn't always quite what we saw. Just after finishing the magazine that accompanies the Official Starships Collection reproduction, Eaglemoss uncovered some lost designs by artist Rick Sternbach.
Scotty's jacket goes under the gavel in Belfast
In The Search for Spock, Scotty helped Kirk steal the Enterprise. And now some lucky person in Belfast gets to steal Scotty's jacket. Well, not steal it… but get it at a potentially bargain-basement price. More than 1,000 pieces of rare sci-fi memorabilia seized from a criminal couple are going on auction in the Northern Ireland city and include not only six sets of costumes from Star Trek but also items from Star Wars and Doctor Who.
