The Star Trek: First Contact trading card set produced by SkyBox was released in November 1996. A widevision card set, in line with SkyBox's previous film-related releases, the set comprised a sixty-card base set and five chase sets. One of the more unusual chase sets was the Blueprint Posters – these were paper inserts, rather than cards, which folded out to 9" × 7".

The single autograph card for the set featured Brent Spiner and was of extreme rarity, only appearing in 1 out of 3,600 packs (an estimated print run of 180).

In the base set, odd-numbered cards had a background of an intact Enterprise-E corridor wall, while even-numbered cards featured an assimilated corridor wall.

Two different boxes were produced for the cards: one for hobby stores, containing 36 packs, the other for Blockbuster Video, containing sixteen packs.
