Star Trek: A Piece of the Action was an adaptation of stills taken from the Star Trek: The Original Series second season episode "A Piece of the Action" into a photonovel, and the eighth release in the series. Aside from an episode cast list, the book also included excerpts from reader's letters, a trivia quiz and a glossary.

Like the previous outing in the series, no internationally translated edition is known to exist.
