Today at the big “Destination Star Trek” convention in Germany, Eaglemoss’s booth had quite a few new items on display, including the upcoming releases for their Star Trek: Discovery – Starships Collection.
UPDATE: Here are more views of the Eaglemoss ships from Twitter user Black Alert (@schwarzeralarm) while at Destination Star Trek this weekend:

Upcoming Discovery Starships
The new Eaglemosss Star Trek: Discovery line has already released two ships (the U.S.S. Discovery and the U.S.S. Shenzhou). At their booth Eaglemoss had a poster showing off official renders of future starships in the line. The most notable of these was Discovery’s USS Enterprise, which is not expected to be released for quite some time as Eaglemoss only received the CG files in February. This shot (via Ben Robinson from Eaglemoss on Twitter) provides a nice view of the dorsal side of the ship, which was barely seen in Discovery’s season 1 finale.
On display for the first time was the Klingon Bird of Prey, which will be the third ship in the series. The ship was supposed to be released already, but was delayed due to production issues. The Bird of Prey will be the next release in the line, and subscribers were promised a special bonus due to the delay.
The U.S.S. Kerala, which is slated to be the fourth ship released, was also on hand. The Shepard-Class Kerala was seen in the second episode of Discovery (“Battle at the Binary Stars”).
In addition to the standard Discovery ships on display, Eaglemoss showed off a few subscription-only bonus issues. Much like they have done in the Official Starships Line, the Shenzhou has been repainted as the I.S.S. Shenzhou complete with the Terran Empire logo on the hull.
Additional subscription-only bonus issues will include dedication plaques for the USS Shenzhou and USS Discovery, as well as a scale chart poster of Discovery’s ships, and a Tardigrade figurine (no pictures available).
Due to the production delays with the Bird of Prey, an official release date has yet to be announced. Eaglemoss plans to not release any ships during the Summer, returning in the Fall with the U.S.S. Kerala. For more info, visit Eaglemoss.com.
