Autographs Abound in
Star Trek: Voyager Profiles Trading Card Series
One Hand-Signed Card Guaranteed in Every
September 23, Mt. Laurel, NJ . . .On September 30, 1998, Fleer/SkyBox
will launch Star Trek: Voyager Profiles trading cards, featuring an autographed
card in every box from a starring cast member or guest star of the popular
science fiction TV series. The star-studded autograph list is headed by
Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), John
De Lancie (Q) and more than a dozen other actors. Star Trek: Voyager Profiles
marks the continuation of Fleer/SkyBox's new policy of guaranteeing collectors
at least one autographed card in every box of Star Trek trading cards.
"The guarantee of an autographed card in every box signifies Fleer/SkyBox's
renewed commitment to Star Trek fans and collectors everywhere,"
says Fleer/SkyBox Entertainment Director Steve Charendoff, "and the
list of signers is most impressive. We have received cooperation from
the entire current starring cast, as well as a number of major guest actors,
including John De Lancie and Dwight Schultz, whose importance to Star
Trek transcends Voyager. All of the actors involved have been extremely
eager to make this program work for the sake of their fans."
In addition to the autographed cards, the base 90-card set will profile
the 10 most important characters since the show made its debut four years
ago. Each character will be featured in a nine-card subset. Each subset
will consist of 3 Personal Log cards; 3 Reflection cards featuring comments
about the character from other characters; one Captain's card with comments
from Janeway; one Crew Manifest card, and one Alien Encounter card featuring
a significant incident between the character and an alien.
"Since Voyager is such a character-driven show, it only seemed fitting
to present a card set in this format," adds Charendoff. "While
we could have presented the set in episodic format, similar to other Trek
sets, but newer format enables us to explore each character in more detail.
All of the major story arcs and subplots will still be covered in detail,
but in a different, more interesting way.
In addition to the base set, Star Trek: Voyager Profiles will
include the following bonus sets:
· Alien Technology -- As the name implies, aliens and their ships are
the focus of these cards. Nine cards in all.
· Make-up with Michael Westmore -- These cards will feature make-up techniques
used by make-up artist Michael Westmore to create Voyager's spectacular
characters. Nine cards in all.
· Seven of Nine Expose - The newest crew member appears in her own nine-card
bonus set. Card #Seven of Nine will be an extra special bonus card surprise.
· One Autographed in Every Box -- These autographed cards feature authentic
hand-signed autographs from cast members and guest stars including:
Fans will also have another opportunity to win a complete
set of the autographed cards by playing the Star Trek: Voyager Autograph
card game. Fans who collect game cards to successfully spell out the words

Star Trek: Voyager Profiles trading cards will be available in 9-card
packs for a suggested retail price of $1.99 per pack.
