Star Trek: The Next Generation: The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D Illustrated Handbook is a hardcover reference book that was co-authored by Ben Robinson and Marcus Riley and illustrated by Rob Garrard and Ian Fullwood.

The first volume in the Illustrated Handbook series, two mass-market editions of the book were published by Penguin Random House on 9 July 2019, under Eaglemoss Collections' Hero Collector imprint.

A considerable amount of content that was previously published in the Star Trek Fact Files has been updated and incorporated into the book, alongside entirely new material.

A Special Edition includes a starship miniature that was previously released in the first (Standard Edition) issue of the Official Starships Collection partwork.
