Star Trek launches new magazine titled Star Trek Explorer
Star Trek brings fans a new magazine in 2021.
The Star Trek brand is launching a brand new magazine under the new name of Star Trek Explorer. The magazine will be the second book published alongside Star Trek Magazine from Titan Publishing. Issue 80 of the magazine is due out on September 1, 2021. So it looks like the two magazines will be produced side by side.
There are rumors that Star Trek # 80 in the US (# 208 in the UK) is the latest issue in this series of issues, but I haven’t found any official news on this. The new Explorer magazine is going to include things similar to the original magazine, including interviews, behind-the-scenes coverage, new fictional content, and other fan-related stuff.
The first issue of the magazine has an order deadline of October 11, 2021 and features Michael Burnham from Discovery, Captain Pike from Strange New Worlds and James Kirk from the original series on the cover of the magazine, with Burnham being front and center.
The magazine’s description reads

Titan Publishing remains attached to magazines
Titan Publishing has had great success with the magazine, publishing it (at least) # 208 issues. The magazine featured articles on Trek Online short stories, excerpts from Trek novels, and other fan-related content.
The first issue of Explorer comes out with two covers, one featuring Burnham and the other featuring illustrations of Tim Anderson’s TOS illustrations.
Titan Publishing also produces magazines focused on Star Wars, The Simpsons, and Marvel Comics, running roughly two issues per month between any of the four publications offered on a regular basis.
