An issue of Galaxy

Galaxy was a science fiction magazine on Earth in the 1950s. It featured the work of some of the genre's greatest writers including Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Theodore Sturgeon. "Court Martial", by Samuel T. Cogley, was one of the stories written for it. The cost of a copy was thirty-five cents.

It was the main competition to Incredible Tales of Scientific Wonder and was held up by Herbert Rossoff as a superior publication. Douglas Pabst thought it was a "rag". (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

The cover image of Galaxy seen in the episode "Far Beyond the Stars" was based on a matte painting by Albert Whitlock of the Starbase 11 planet in the Star Trek: The Original Series episodes "Court Martial" and "The Menagerie, Part I". The typeset and layout of the cover were adopted from the real life Galaxy magazine.
In real life, the cover of the September 1953 issue looked like this .
Galaxy was, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 291), published from 1950 to 1980. In 1951, Heinlein's The Puppet Masters was serialized in this periodical.
