Logo of The Official Fan Club Magazine.

The Official Fan Club Magazine was a licensed Star Trek magazine published by FANtastic Media from 1979 to 1994.

History and format[]

Founder Dan Madsen launched the publication in 1979 as a fanzine for an unofficial fan club, with Paramount Pictures licensing both the club and magazine in 1982. It sported various titles, including Star Trek II: The Movie Fan Club, Star Trek III: The Official Fan Club Magazine from #42-45, and finally settling on Star Trek: The Official Fan Club Magazine with #46 in July/August 1985. A redesign with a TNG-style logo debuted in #58 in October/November 1987, with a revamp in #95 in February/March 1994. Paramount's logo began appearing on the cover with #62 in June/July 1988.

Columnists included Mark A. Altman, Richard Arnold, and Bjo Trimble.

In December 1994/January 1995, with its 100th issue, it was rebranded Star Trek: Communicator, which continued for ten more years.
