USS Prometheus and Xindi Insectoid ship set course for your desk
For starship lovers, EagleMoss's Official Starships Collection has been like a tall glass of tranya—sweet and refreshing. Having run through most of the lead ships—like the Enterprises and Voyager—as well as the most common enemy vessels like the Klingon Bird-of-Prey and the Romulan War Bird, the collection is now turning its eyes on the obscure. Issue 24 will bring fans the very unique Xindi Insectoid Ship from Enterprise's third season, while Issue 25 will deliver the USS Prometheus and tri-vector assault mode, seen in the Voyager episode "Message In a Bottle." (No word on whether a miniature Andy Dick is included.)

John Byrne hints at the future of New Visions
When John Byrne first revealed his project to create photo comics using images sourced from The Original Series, it was hard to imagine how exactly this would work. A similar idea was tried in the 1970s without success. But if anyone in the comic world could pull it off, it is John Byrne. The success of the first volume led to an ongoing series with IDW, and the result has been rich, engaging stories and unique visuals. Now, in his forums, Byrne drops hints at the future direction of New Visions.
