The initial collection ran for seventy issues coming to an end in December 2006. Those issues each contained three episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation with the exception of the last two issues which both contained two episodes and ten issues released variously throughout the run which contained the ten Star Trek movies to date.
The information in the magazines was for the most part reprinted or reworked information from an earlier GE Fabbri publication, the Star Trek Fact Files. Some additions were made to add in references to the events of Star Trek: Enterprise and Star Trek Nemesis which (with the exception of season one of Enterprise) were not released prior to the original Star Trek Fact Files being published. The Star Trek Nemesis issue represented all new material for English readers, though the film was at least partially covered in the Japanese edition of the Star Trek Fact Files.
The magazines also contained a behind the scenes section which was not originally included in the Star Trek Fact Files but was largely comprised of previously published interviews and production information from other sources.
