35th anniversary patch designOkay, it's official. I got the go ahead from WotC to make the 35th anniversary patch. So now I need to get a good count of how many I need to make. The full details and a picture of the patch design (also shown at right) can be found at http://starfrontiers.info/patch2017.html. I plan to put the order in mid to late October (after the next issue of the Frontier Explorer has been out a few weeks) and ship the patch as soon as they arrive (probably around the first of the year). If you are interested in one or more patches, please visit the site and send me an e-mail letting me know how many.?

Me too.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Placed an order how many more are needed?

Sounds like a great job but where did you say we had to go?

I don't need a specific number.  I'm planning on making at least 100 like last time.  If I get enough requests and pre-orders that we are getting close to that, I'll probably order 200 since I don't want to run out before everyone that wants one gets one and there are bound to be people that will order one once they are in hand that didn't pre-order.  I've already had 44 requested (7 of which have already been paid for) before counting iggy and jedion357.  If you guys get 4 and 5 respectively like last time, that puts me at 53.  If rattraveller has already place a request or pre-order he's counted in that 44.  I'll have a better count after the next Frontier Explorer issue goes out as to the final estimate.

I'm up to 56 requested (+n for jedion357) with over half of them already paid for and the final call for preorders and requests goes out in the Frontier Explorer issue that is going out to Patron backers tonight and generally probably on Monday.  After that I'll be placing the order in mid-November and hope to have them in hand by the first of the year.  If I'm lucky people will be getting them for Christmas.

picture of an actual 35th anniversary patchSo the patches have been ordered and paid for and this morning I got an image of the production sample for approval.  It looked good so I have approved production and should have them in hand in about 2 weeks.  If you want to order one jump over to http://starfrontiers.info/patch2017.html.

So I have the patches in hand and am looking to mail the first batch out this weekend.  I've had about 135 of the 200 I ordered claimed and paid for already.  If you want yours, now would be a good time to get your order in.  If you're in the US they should show up before Christmas.

Thanks for putting these together; I'll get my order in for a couple.  Before I do, I wanted to ask whether any of the 30th anniversary patches might still be available as well.  (I showed up late to the revival....)

At the moment there are no 30th anniversary patches available.  I have two left but they've been spoken for.  If the person who has already claimed them doesn't get back to me, I'll let you know.

I'd love a 30th patch too if the other one isn't spoken for...

My 35th Anniversary patch arrived tonight.
I must say its far sexier in person than in the photos above.
And the 1 and 7 in 2017 are more noticeably different than I originally thought they would be.
This is just a piece of coolness, thanks very much for everything it took to get these done!

Just got mine today. First, I'm a Marine. Most here knew that. Now, if you are related to, or know a Marine well, you will understand what I'm about to say. OUTSTANDING!
