(written from a Production point of view)

A Star to Steer Her By was a special publication, produced by Pocket Books and released with Playmates Toys' two 12" Masterpiece Collection figures. The hardback book, published in a limited print run of 20,000, featured biographies of Christopher Pike, James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Benjamin Sisko, and Kathryn Janeway. Five different covers were produced: one each for the four main captains, and one with all four combined.

The biographies presented in the novel were later republished in novels of the The Captain's Table miniseries, as well as the omnibus collection of that series.
