Star Trek the Original Series ran for three seasons from 1966 to 1969 and became one of the most famous of TV Sci-Fi Programmes alongside the BBC's Dr Who. Both series have seen the largest number of original novels of ALL TV series ever, and these books are still actively being produced today. All the TV episodes of the original series were novelised as numbered books (1 - 12) by James Blish (and No 12 with J A Lawrence due to the death of James Blish). This numbered series has been reprinted several times over the years, both in the US and the UK. As there have been so many Star Trek books, the gallery is split into several pages. This first page covers all the novelisations and their varying covers from the 60s to the 70s, including the "Fotonovels" issued in 1977/78.

To see these books cover variations ordered together, go to Page 1a, and as published in other countries, go to Page 1b.

In 1985, Bantam re-published 'Star Trek 11' under the title "Day of the Dove" which was one of the episodes featured in the book, and also 'Star Trek 12' in the same style cover but without a title alteration. Both books are in the same style as the 16 original novels third cover variation (see Page 2). To my knowledge, none of the other ten books were reprinted in this way.

Later reprints of the first 9 books in this cover design, in addition to bringing No 1 into line with the rest and the different cover for No 2, all showed the number as a much smaller font, thus matching up with the last three books originally released.
