Star Trek Explorer will be, say Titan, “the no. #1 destination for everything Star Trek – filled with in-depth interviews and features taking you behind-the-scenes of all your favorite shows and movies.
The new-look Explorer magazine also includes two brand-new exclusive Star Trek short stories, and a bonus 16-page themed supplement bound inside each issue, the premiere issue featuring a definitive guide to Captain Kirk.
(Longtime readers of Star Trek Magazine wil recall early UK-published issues included comic strip previously published by DC Comics, and sample chapters of new novels).
“The Star Trek brand is so exciting right now with new shows and storylines,” exclaimed Editor Nick Jones. “We wanted to match this excitement with a new, fresh-look magazine that will thrill long-time and new readers alike. We will be exploring the entire Star Trek Universe in a cool, fun way. I can’t wait to share with our readers!”
Subscribers to Star Trek Explorer will also receive an exclusive digital magazine, direct to their inbox with every quarterly issue. Each digital magazine will feature bonus short stories, printables, activities and much more.
Star Trek Magazine was the first regular magazine to be published by Titan Magazines, initially edited by John Freeman, quickly followed by Darryl Curtis, and is the publisher’s longest-running title. Launched in February 1995 as Star Trek Monthly, soon after the first broadcast of Star Trek: Voyager, a separate North American edition of the magazine was launched in August 2006, which otherwise synchronised with the UK version for contents. Over 200 issues were published, plus a number of spin-off titles, including a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Poster Magazine, and a German edition, too.
