Star Trek: The Collectibles

   New projects for this year include Star Trek: The Collectibles. This 256-page all-color book takes an in-depth look at the wide world of collectibles based on the original Star Trek television series. Author and veteran Star Trek collector Steve Kelley includes everything from action figures and clocks to props and trading cards.

   Though the series only lasted three seasons in the mid-1960s, the collectibles keep coming.

   The book won’t be available until late September (you can pre-order a copy by clicking on the title above), but here’s a sneak peek at the cover:


   Many thanks to designer Tom Nelson for this stunning cover. Yes, that’s the die-cast Franklin Mint U.S.S. Enterprise — but doesn’t it look real?
