Pocket Books, a subsidiary of Simon & Schuster, was the publisher for all original Star Trek fiction printed in mass market paperback from 1979 to 2010. Simon & Schuster has changed the branding of new releases and current series produced after 2010 are under the Gallery Books banner.

Pocket Book's first Star Trek release was the novelization of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, in 1979. Previously, the license for Star Trek fiction had been with Bantam Books.

Pocket Books is a division of publisher Simon & Schuster, Inc., which is currently owned by CBS, as is CBS Paramount Television, Star Trek's production studio. Paramount Pictures, Star Trek's former owner, is now at Viacom.

Until 2009, the Pocket Books imprint was used for Star Trek publications in hardcover and trade paperback as well as mass market. In early 2010, Simon and Schuster announced that the Pocket Books imprint would be applied to mass market paperbacks only, and that a new imprint, Gallery Books, would be created for trade paperback and hardcover publications. The anthology Seven Deadly Sins was the first Trek title published under the Gallery imprint.

Pocket Books has offices in New York, London, Toronto, and Sydney. It also had offices in Tokyo until 1999, and in Singapore until 2004. In some Star Trek books, an additional locale, related to the specific book, will be added to this list of cities on the book's title page. (See Pocket Books offices for a listing of these locations.)
