An ongoing series based on the 1987-94 syndicated series. It begins during the show's second season, and ends at a period in-between the final episode and the film Star Trek: Generations (1994). The letter column is called "Starfleet Confidential". DC Star Trek: The Next Generation comics were published with direct market and newsstand editions. Direct market issues #1 thru #52 have a logo or text in the box where newsstand editions have a UPC barcode. Beginning November 1993 with Star Trek: The Next Generation #53, direct market editions have a UPC barcode with the words "DIRECT SALES" while newsstand editions are unchanged. Issues #55 thru #63 were also sold in DC Collector's Packs of two or twenty comics. These issues have a logo instead of a UPC barcode.
