Star Trek - The Complete Next Generation (Rittenhouse)
Okay, I might as well start this one. Here's what I've been told so far...

Star Trek The Complete Next Generation Set

1) It'll come in two parts. Part one this year and part two next year.
2) There will be 4 autographs per box.
3) There will be Randomly inserted cut signature cards from Gene Roddenberry. (30 made)
4) The case incentive card will be made from his TNG business cards. It will have the TNG logo and an image of the ship on them.

If anyone else knows something more, please tell!

JUne is the most likely month.

Am looking forward to this set - I hope to pick up a definitive set of autos from the main 7 crew.

I know they all signed the same format (for the first time) in the RA movie sets but TBH I can do without Data pulling goofy faces or the abundance of sailor hats. Hopefully some better images will be chosen this time around.

Also, wasn't there talk of including some comm-badges as incentive cards as was done in the Trek XI movie set?

Howdy,

This is a really exciting sounding set. I loved the Next Generation and the only Star Trek Card that is in my collection that is not a Promo is a Gates McFadden Casting Call
Chase Card from Nemesis.

That may change in June given my love affair with Rittenhouse Archives recent sets.

There are pics of two of the autograph cards coming in this set in the NSU 2011 Preview exclusive web gallery. Both are from previous Trek signers, but both are awesome looking Smile

Hi Chris:

Please see this thread:

Preview of 2011 Cards

I believe that is what the above posts are referencing. Included in the image gallery of cards coming in 2011 are two The Complete Star Trek: TNG 1987-1991 cards.

Oh. What a disappointment.

I'm glad to hear some people like the cards, but the "quotable" looked that is being reused for CTNG is by far my least favorite style. Far too much white and far too little picture.

If Rittenhouse is really having such a hard time with originality, or if they are just struggling with change, then I wished they would have repeated the look they used for Next Gen Season 7 cards, or at least the look they beat to death with all their TOS cards.

Those cards were at least nice to look at.

I thought I was the only one thinking a bit dissapointed with these cards.

Personally I don't mind the green and white cards, you get a decent sized image and a decent sized signing area. They seem unique enough to call them the 'TNG style' and given how many of these cards RA put out last time, I reckon most of the set will be on this design.

However I think the red and white cards featuring the main crew are absolutely horrid. I've never liked them since the yellow iterations which came out for the TOS Quotable set. They are just way too overdesigned. The replication of the actor image (seen in the background) seems pointless and detracts from the main image, the main image is badly photoshopped, the quotes don't enhance the signature, not a fan of the slanted signature area and the "Quotable Next Generation" logo on the top left makes the cards too set specific. These can't be the definitive RA cards for the TNG crew surely? Frown

Personally I was hoping to see a new TNG 'twist' on the TOS style cards much like we got with the Movie sets. If this doesn't come to pass I think the main crew need to be on the green and white style cards to integrate with the rest of the signers.
