The Official Star Trek: Voyager Magazine was an authorized magazine published by Starlog Press, reporting on Star Trek: Voyager. Like the official Next Generation magazine and official Deep Space Nine magazine before it, the publication provided summaries of current episodes, as well as interviews with production staff. The magazine is notable for numerous behind-the-scenes photographs. The magazine was initially referred to as "bi-monthly" (in an introduction inside the first issue) but went on to be published a lot less frequently than that.

From issue #12 onwards, the magazine underwent a slight restyle. Instead of its front and back covers being made from card, the publication began to be published with paper covers. Also, though the images in the first eleven issues were one page in size at the most, three-page gatefold posters were included in all the subsequent issues. These posters were often either publicity stills of the regular cast members or taken from episodes aired around the time of each issue's publication, though the images also included Tuvix in issue #13, Amelia Earhart and Denara Pel in issue #14, The Clown in issue #16, and a behind-the scenes photograph of Robert Picardo and Ethan Phillips (without makeup and in casual clothing rather than costumes) in issue #18.

The magazine's first issue was published with a variant cover wherein a portion of the card was holographic. Also, the cover of issue #17 asked "who's really alien?", giving options as Tuvok, Seven of Nine, Harry Kim, Neelix, the Hirogen and B'Elanna Torres. The answer given on the same issue's contents page was, "None of them, of course. They're played by human actors. As for the characters, only Ensign Kim is fully human."
