Old SkyBox press release


Star Trek: Insurrection Moving Trading Card Set
Guarantees One Autographed Card In Every Box

 
 
Mt. Laurel, NJ . . . Fleer/SkyBox will release its Star Trek: Insurrectionä movie trading cards on December 2 1998, one week prior to the film opening As a bonus to collectors, one hand-signed autographed card will be guaranteed inside each 36-pack box of the movie trading cards. Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis, Gates McFadden and LeVar Burton are among the stars who have agreed to sign cards. The highly-anticipated Paramount Pictures motion picture is slated to open at theaters nationwide on December 11. Star Trek: Insurrectionä is the ninth Star Trekä motion picture.
 
"The cast of Star Trek: Insurrectionä has been extremely cooperative, and I can't say enough good things about them." said Steven Charendoff, Entertainment Director at Fleer/SkyBox. "Their willingness to sign autographs and to make this series of cards such a success shows their commitment to Star Trek fans everywhere. That's why Star Trekä is so great!"
 
In addition to the excitement of autographed cards, the Star Trek: Insurrectionä movie card set will consist of 72 basic cards, plus bonus cards. Contrary to some speculation, this set will not be combined with the highly anticipated Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 7 series. A set focusing solely on Season 7 will be released in 1999 so that fans mat complete their collections.
 
The 72-cards basic card set will feature Plot cards (23), Soundbytes (27), Character Profiles (13), Alien Races (8), and a checklist. Bonus cards include Wardrobe (9), revealing behind-the-scenes costume designs; Schematics (9), featuring pre-production artwork used to create the many new ships in the movie; Behind-the-Scenes (9), offering insights from set designed Michael Okuda; Interplay (9), detailing the key relationships among various characters; Gold cards (7), depicting the starring cast; and, of course, Autographs (19).
 
"This collections will offer fans far more than the typical move card ste," added Charendoff. "We have succeeded in going beyond just retelling the story. We want fans and collectors to be entertained in other ways, to learn how and why the moving was made, to get closer to the actors and the crew. As a result, this promises to be our most successful and best-selling entertainment card series of the year."
 
Star Trek: Insurrectionä movie cards will be oversized, consistent with previous Star Trekä movie card sets. These cards will be available in 9-card packs with a suggested retail price of $1.99 per pack.
 
Paramount Pictures' Star Trek property has become the most enduring science fiction property of all time since it first aired on television on September 8, 1966. With four series having aired on television, eight motion pictures released, and more than $2.5 billion products sold at retail, Star Trek is at the height of its popularity. This year, Paramount releases its ninth motion picture, Star Trek: Insurrectionä, launching Star Trek into a "bold new millenniumä."
