And second.

I’ve never won a thing in my life. Even the “vacation package” I “won” had a catch. Nothing looks too exciting to win. Maybe if they had a starship Enterprise or something…

2. I'm dead Jim - August 13, 2009

Yeah, they need to offer a couple of the new E custom models with lights and what not. Forgot the name of the company doing those.

3. BAILY - August 13, 2009

I hate discriminatory contests that are U.S. only …. what about us Canadians??

4. Anthony Pascale - August 13, 2009

FFS, complaining about free giveaways

i swear there is something wrong with some Trekkies

5. Kevin Dilmore - August 13, 2009

Also in issue #21, a short Harry Mudd story courtesy of Dayton and me. :)

6. Raphael Salgado - August 13, 2009

I want this. Am I nerdy?

7. BAILY - August 13, 2009

I’m only complaining because it seems all Trek contests are U.S only. I really like the prizes though. That Star Trek cast portrait is beautiful .. I must go find it somewhere

8. Sybok's Secret Brother - August 13, 2009

Sweet – Gonna win me some tickets! Thanks!

9. Christine - August 13, 2009

For some reason, I just love the Star Trek magazine… Minus the occasional Enterprise bashing I sometimes see, which tends to upset me. ^__^;;

10. David B - August 13, 2009

I like the TOS and Voyager posters as I am a fan of both but I am not a US resident, I don’t suppose this offer aplies to the UK version of the magazine?

11. StudioGeek - August 13, 2009

BAILY – The reason most contests are US only is that Canadian Sweepstakes law is significantly different from the US (this holds true for most International territories as well).

So it’s not any bias, it’s just the inability to have separate sets of rules for multiple countries, some of which include the needs for license and bonds in each of the countries to make their country eligible.

Plus, shipping costs, since most prizing like this is donated to the sponsor, additional costs to ship each of these items could be a deterrent.

Finally, when information is shared with co-sponsors who donate the prizing (does not seem to be the case here since you do not need to opt-in for it), often the companies are looking to grow lists of customers, many times of which they are only marketing to the US.

Just a few reasons things like this happen all the time – hopes you feel a little better about it!

12. Kirk, James T. - August 13, 2009

However great these prizes might be – one of the major problems with Star Trek is whoever manages the marketing (CBS?) only properly markets it in the US. If you look at other huge franchises such as Star Wars or Batman you will see a huge number of global marketing campaigns to get the brand recognized. The film was a huge success but i feel could have been even bigger had the international marketing for it been bigger.

I understand that Star Trek is an American franchise but that hasn’t stopped Star Wars or Batman from becoming just as big outside the US.

13. Mot - August 13, 2009

Prizes sound good to me. I’ll take ‘em.

14. THX-1138 - August 13, 2009

I think #11 has pretty much summed it up as far as countries outside the U.S. and their prize eligibility. Are there no magazines or fan-based companies in countries outside the U.S. that can sponsor prizes like this for their own citizenry?

I do have to agree that for the most part, Trek is woefully under-promoted outside of the U.S. Which may be why there aren’t any international contests.

As for me, I am in it and I’m gonna win it.

15. Valar1 - August 13, 2009

4- FFS. hilarious, I’ve never seen that abbreviation before but i instantly knew what it was- something archetypal, lol.

16. Wes W. - August 13, 2009

Notice how they put Bill’s picture behind the ‘lighter side of Star Trek’! LOL!

17. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge - August 13, 2009

Titan, you miserable capitalist bastards.

I remember a time when “Star Trek Monthly” was availible only in Ireland and England. I was there in 1995 for issue one, with Captatin Picard on the cover, and a free bookmark. Saving my pocket money as an eight year old, just to make sure I could get this every month. And the licesnse expaned to include Austraila and New Zealand in 1998/1999, with practically no change to the magazine.

And fourteen years later, this is how I and other loyal readers repayed. A competition availible in the US. Now, I do not begrudge someone winning this, but the high and mighty Titan Magazines seem to have forgotten their humble beginnings from 1995, and the eight year old Irish kid, who loved the magic of Star Trek, and a publication called “Star Trek Monthly”.

18. Brett Campbell - August 13, 2009

4 – Anthony, you are funny!

They could give cash with some of these prizes and some Trekkies would still bitch.

19. CarlG - August 13, 2009

@4, 18: They could give away cash, a jewel-encrusted life-size Enterprise, a crate of Chateau Picard and a green chick, and Fan Dumb will still complain… FFS indeed.

20. Harry Ballz - August 13, 2009

What, no BLUE chicks?? Ratsaroonie!

21. Antoniemey - August 13, 2009

I already have the checks… but I’ll take the rest of that stuff…

23. Brett Campbell - August 14, 2009

22 – WTF?

Yeah, we got it from the article headine.

You seem to have difficulty understanding that the complaints are not about the prizes.
They’re complaints that, as per usual, anyone outside the US doesn’t count.
Still it takes so long for the magazines to crawl over to the UK that the deadlines for entry would probably have passed anyway, even if we weren’t regarded as second-class citizens.

25. Brett Campbell - August 14, 2009

24 – I had no difficulty whatsoever understanding that posts #1 and #2 were about the quality and the desireablity of the prizes themselves. Reread those posts.

26. BAILY - August 14, 2009

#11 – StudioGeek

I understand that it works that way. It just sucks for the lot of us from Canada and the UK who also read and are loyal to the mag. Nonetheless, good luck to all that enter the contest

27. Third Remata'Klan - August 14, 2009

“Contest open to U.S. residents only.”

Grrrr. I hate that….

28. James Cannon - Runcorn Trekkie - August 14, 2009

With you on that buddy. I too have EVERY edition going back to 1995 here in England. Not happy with that at all.
“Star Trek Monthly” was a quality magazine that didn’t have that “spread over 8 pages interview” that most US mags do. When reading an interview, I expect it to continue on the next page, not have another one between it.

It does appear to have gone downhill big time.

I’ll still end up buying the friggin thing though tbh.

29. CarlG - August 14, 2009

@24: Yeah, well I kind of take it for granted; I’m in Quebec, so we get double excluded even if the contest is open to Canadians… blech.

30. Paul Simpson - August 15, 2009

17 / 28 We ran competitions in the UK edition of the magazine that were for UK entrants only for the first 18 months of my editorship, with similar sorts of prizes (one was Gold Tickets for FedCon, I remember), and got virtually zero response. Some sort of UK based competition is in the planning stages, and I hope we get a better response
28 – We very rarely spread interviews with bits inbetween (unless it’s a pull out supplement). Big features – like the Romulans/Time Travel/Borg/Humour pieces – need to be. What do you feel is missing from the magazine now that was there before?
9 – Enterprise bashing? There may be some in the letters page from fans, but I haven’t seen any evidence of that in features etc. There’s occasionally people saying that it was a missed opportunity, which isn’t quite tne same thing.

31. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge - August 16, 2009

^ Oh that’s great news! I can’t belive you’ve been editor for that long either!

And just one more general Titan question, can readers from Ireland enter the competitions? The last competiton I can think of off-hand was the last issue of Torchwood Magazine, but the terms and conditions say “open to UK readers only”.

32. Paul Simpson - August 16, 2009

Three years come the end of September!
I believe that readers from Eire don’t qualify for UK only competitions, but your best bet is to email the competition address and ask directly – as editors, we don’t set up the terms and conditions on competitions, as there’s obviously legal ramifications (as are mentioned in some of the comments above) and the terms for this US competition are longer than the articles I’m editing for the upcoming Villains issue!!

Paul

33. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge - August 17, 2009

I don’t envy you having to read all that competition jargon!

Thanks for your help!

34. Lieutenant - September 20, 2009

Has any one gotten word on winning yet? I know the drawing was supposed to be today, but I don’t know if I haven’t gotten any notification because I didn’t win or they haven’t announced the winners yet.

35. Frank Rosario - August 15, 2010
