(written from a Production point of view)
There were at least three versions of the magazine. Two separate editions were published in North America: the Canadian version was published as a special edition of TV Guide and included a feature on "The Canadian connections in Star Trek". A second version for the United States removed all references to TV Guide, and replaced the feature on Canadians with a feature which focused on "America's role in space exploration". Both versions were produced in Canada.
A version was also published in the United Kingdom, as a special edition of the TV listings magazine, the Radio Times. Like the Canadian TV Guide version, the UK edition featured a prominent RT logo at its top. The additional feature in this instance was "Britain's role in space exploration". The magazine saw an translated version in the form of the German language 30 Jahre Star Trek: Offizielle Sonderausgabe für Sammler.
All version came with a pull-out Star Trek space map poster.
