(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - The Official Poster Magazine was a short-lived monthly publication produced by Titan Magazines under the banner of "Star Trek Monthly Publications". A preview issue - "Issue 0" - was produced and given away free with Star Trek Monthly issue 18. The magazine ended abruptly at fourteen issues after a year in publication with at least one more issue planned. The fifteenth issue would have focused on "Accession" and featured interviews with Ira Steven Behr and Rosalind Chao. In Star Trek Monthly issue 36, it was announced that the magazine was "on hiatus due to in-house changes".
A spin-off from the successful Star Trek Monthly, each issue of the magazine focused on a specific episode from the fourth season, including a fold-out, large-format poster with art related to the episode and an interview with one or more relevant Star Trek figure (including Ira Steven Behr in most issues), a detailed episode guide, articles on characters or races, trivia and broadcast dates.
