The Star Trek: The Next Generation Magazine was a magazine published by Marvel UK between 1990 and 1992. Each issue reprinted a strip from DC Comics' Star Trek: The Next Generation volumes 1 and 2, as well as articles previously published in Starlog.

Initially released fortnightly, the magazine went to monthly publication with issue 20, which also saw a significant expansion of the magazine and an corresponding increase in price, from 60p to £1.50.

The title is not to be confused with a similar UK magazine by Phoenix Press, which also reprinted DC comics.
