INTRODUCTION


FASA Star Trek Gaming Magazine Articles

Creating this section of the parts index was very time consuming and in some instances complex. I'm satisfied with this part of the index and find it rather complete, a reliable and an accurate source; it has gone through many many revisions. I painfully supply this list to help all the FASA ST fans to obtain these gaming articles for there collection. We where able to provide downloadable PDFs or scanned images of almost all these articles for the rest of us to enjoy, finally! (Note: the downloads are not here).

As a combined effort with Morena_Shipyards (FASAfan) the quality of this list is possible. To further complete this list, we used several different types of research methods to expand and correct this list. Its an on going process as well as we find new ADs and Articles in different Magazine publications from the past.

FASAfan (Lee, the Morena Group owner) has put together a very similar Magazine List in PDF format (perhaps other formats) and has distributed it among the FASA ST community. It has his special research notes and magazine history briefs as well. His list also includes (which this list does not) info for the Heritage Models ST:RPG and covers the West End Games' ST boxed games. You would benefit from reading it, when you download it from his Group (see links page for his web site), version 3.1 was the last version I seen.
