This is the only classic-era STAR TREK ANNUAL published by Marvel UK in late 1979 to coincide with the film's Christmas release. It reprinted Marvel's adaptation of THE MOTION PICTURE, published in the States in MARVEL SUPER SPECIAL and the first three issues of the ongoing Trek monthly.
In the UK, it was serialised in FUTURE TENSE a year later.
The Trek annuals had previously been published by World Distributors who licensed reprints of the notoriously off-message US Gold Key comics.
Marvel UK published one more Trek annual: a companion to their short-lived STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION comic which, like the title that spawned it, took its contents from DC Comics and the licensed Starlog magazines.
