(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek Interstellar: The Official Star Trek Fan Club was the first officially authorized fan club for the Star Trek franchise and was established by Gene Roddenberry in 1968. Ruth Berman edited club publications and co-ordinated the fan club on behalf of Star Trek Enterprises and later for Lincoln Enterprises.
The fan club published twelve issues of Inside Star Trek and enjoyed close access to Star Trek's cast and crew during the production of the series' third season. After Star Trek was canceled by the network, the club and magazine were discontinued.
