Star Trek: A Taste of Armageddon was an adaptation of stills taken from the first season episode "A Taste of Armageddon" of Star Trek: The Original Series, into a photonovel, the fourth release in the series. Aside from an episode cast list, glossary and trivia quiz, the book also included a mini-interview with guest actress Elinor Donahue, who portrayed Federation Assistant Commissioner Nancy Hedford in the episode.
