A special, in terms of communications, is a part of a program or publication that is not part of a regular schedule, but is created to generate interest from media consumers.

In the television broadcasts of the planet Magna Roma, regular series of gladiator-style fights were part of the normal schedule. However, a particularly notable event, sometimes a brutal spectacle or execution, would be shown as a special. Prisoners, an Enterprise landing party among them, were reticent to fight one another in the year 2267, leading the head Magna Roman guard to threaten them. If they failed to provide a decent spectacle for the cameras, he promised to do a special on them. (TOS episode: "Bread and Circuses")


In comic book publishing, special issues have been released for many series of Star Trek books:

DC Comics
