Do you agree with all the choices for the characters? Are some less Villains and more Hero?

Inserts

  • A parallel set of 100 cards was also found in packs. It had a throw-back style from the 70’s with a more matte finish.
  • Sadly, the tribute card set continues as we lose more and more guest stars through the years. This set features stars lost from Season 3.
  • 9 Kirk’s Epic Battles are shown on this foiled insert set.
  • A 9-card Mirror/Mirror insert set features a layout similar to the DS9 Alternate Realities insert set and is a cheaper alternative to the popular TOS II MIrror set!
  • A new card set for Trek was the Shadowbox cards, a thick plastic layered card for each of the main cast. These cards don’t easily slide into 9-card pocket pages.
  • A box contained one dual autograph card and one single autograph card. The most coveted card of the set was the Shatner/Collins card, though the hardest to acquire was the dual card of the Shatner girls. The dual format allowed for some really great pairings of guest stars.

Autograph Variations

  • The Napier/Downey autograph card has a one-line and two-line variation.
  • A small number of the Brioni Farrell cards were signed with an “AKA: Xenia Gratsos” inscription.

Promos

  • The P1 was released for general distribution.
  • NSU’s Vol 24 No.1 issue has an exclusive P2 promo card.
  • The P3 promo card was an album exclusive.
