Star Trek: The Official Fan Club of the UK Magazine was the publication of Star Trek: The Official Fan Club of the UK and began publication upon the formation of the club in the summer of 1993. Published quarterly, the magazine was the only significant content in the membership pack.

For a 1994 Star Trek: The Next Generation cross-promotion, free issues of a "Special Pizza Hut Edition" of the magazine were featured at Pizza Hut restaurants in the UK.

With issue 5, the magazine adopted a "Stardate" issue numbering. As editor Tim Gaskill explained in Issue 9.03.01, "The first number is the overall issue number [...]. The second number represents the [...] year of publishing [...] and the last digit represents the quarter.".

Following the takeover of the fan club by the Titan Entertainment Group, three more issues of this magazine were produced. Having only minimal content featured over just 20 pages, the magazines served as stop-gap measures until Titan launched their own fan club membership pack. It was superseded by Titan's Star Trek Explorer, Federation News, and Fair Trade magazines.
