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 summer 1993. Published quarterly, the magazine was the only significant content in the membership pack.

With issue 5, the magazine adopted a "Stardate" issue numbering. As explained by editor Tim Gaskill 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 club by the Titan Entertainment Group, three more issues of the Fan Club Magazine were produced. These were minimal on content, being only 20 pages in length, and served as a stop-gap before Titan could launch their own Fan Club magazines - Star Trek Explorer, Federation News and Fair Trade - as part of the relaunched membership pack.
