Star Trek: Lost Scenes is an officially licensed reference book written by David Tilotta and Curt McAloney, operators of the (restoration) website. The book is in part based on the same source collection of cut footage, retained by Gene Roddenberry, which generated the Roddenberry Vault home video release, but primarily on the restoration project of clippings obtained from third parties, which McAloney himself embarked upon starting in 2005.

Aside from the publication of "remastered" behind-the-scenes imagery, the book is also notable for its catalog of known deleted scenes from Star Trek: The Original Series, accompanied by restored images of these scenes and script excerpts. Published by Titan Books, it was released in August 2018.
