downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Star Trek Magazine Collected

Titan Magazines has digitized early issues of its first ongoing licensed title Star Trek Magazine, making them available for the first time on CD-ROM.

The issues, all edited by John Freeman, contain the first 24 issues of Star Trek Monthly in full colour, providing you with a fantastic search tool as well as some fascinating reading (typos and all). The only thing not included, for contractual reasons, is the reprint DC Comics strips.

Launched in 1995, back when Freeman still had hair (well, some, anyway), the Magazine helped establish Titan Magazines on the UK news stand and paved the way for other licensed tie-ins such as Star Wars Magazine, Babylon 5 and today's range, which includes LOST, Torchwood and Heroes.

The CD-ROM is compatible across Mac OSX and Windows systems and every article can be printed in full.

Features on Star Trek: First Contact and the birth of Star Trek: Voyager are just some of the highlights plus in-depth articles on Star Trek technologies, cultures and the show's history along with interviews with actors such as William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols and Patrick Stewart and many others.

If you've only recently discovered Star Trek Magazine and have perhaps been hunting down these early issues on eBay, this CD-ROM is a great alternative. It's just a shame it doesn't come with free bookmark like those early issues of the Magazine did!
