Star Trek: Communicator was the main publication of the Official Star Trek Fan Club. An evolution from Star Trek: The Official Fan Club Magazine, Communicator was a bimonthly magazine, and began releasing with issue 100 - continuing the issue numbering from its predecessor.

On 9 February 2001, Decipher purchased the assets of FANtastic Media, including the Fan Club, and continued publication of Communicator. In 2005, the company announced the cancellation of the magazine after issue 155, citing complaints about subscription mailing delays as well as threats of lawsuits; the underlying cause was financial, due to the collapse of the card gaming industry that was Decipher's mainstay. Attempts to revive the publication by creator/club founder Dan Madsen and managing editor Larry Nemecek have, to date, been unsuccessful.

A number of limited edition starship replicas including the Captain's yacht "Cousteau" and the Vulcan ship from Star Trek: First Contact were released by John Eaves and the fan club, in conjunction with the magazine. Along with a Deep Space 9 replica, they have become much sought-after collectors' items.
