Guys, this is Larry Nemecek.. sorry I'm not signed in. This article is factually wrong at least in the English language editions: The series ran from 2005 to 2011 for 135 issues, and included episodes in the mix from ALL Star Trek series; an individual issue could have episodes from any and all series, per the loose theme. I wrote show notes for every issue, which otherwise repurposed Fact Files material for each issue's theme of three chosen episodes or films.The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bones4ever (talk • contribs).

I think you might be confusing this with the Best Episode Collection from Japan, Mr. Nemecek, which did indeed run for 135 issues, and featured a mix of episodes on a central theme each issue. See [1] (BEC) versus [2] (this series). We don't have an article for that one yet. This series did also reuse Fact Files material, but it was definitely TNG and the movies only - you can see the official website on the Wayback Machine here. -- Michael Warren | Talk 05:03, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
I concur with my colleague, Mr. Nemecek. As the archivist who spent weeks gathering illustrations, I confirm that this particular edition ran for 70 issues, which was followed by a 28 issue Star Trek: The Original Series - The Collector's Edition in 2007-2008. The Japanese (edited) and differently organized version my colleague mentions, is indeed the one you refer to, and is remarkable in this respect that it ran concurrently for awhile with the 2003-2008 Japanese language version of the Star Trek Fact Files, to my knowledge, the only time GE Fabbri publications did so. I know that Tim Leng's Fabbri staff writers prepared texts in English which were then sent to the Japanese editorial bureau of De Agostini where they were translated for release, much like their later ill-fated follow-up, The Official Star Trek The Next Generation: Build the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D, to which you contributed, and it is good to know that you were involved in this effort as well. An entry for this Japanese edition is on the back-burner of my mind, but their is precious little information available on the internet. Regards, --Sennim (talk) 11:06, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
