Star Trek was published in book form by Ballantine Books in the 1970s in the USA, under license from Paramount Pictures.


Ballantine Books was a publisher given license to produce a series of novelizations and other media tie-ins based on Star Trek, starting in the 1970s and continuing until the license was exclusively awarded to Pocket Books in 1979. This was not an exclusive license, as comics, new stories and episode adaptations were published concurrently by Gold Key Comics and Bantam Books. Interestingly, both Bantam and Ballantine are currently owned by Random House. In the UK, Corgi Books published local editions of both the Ballantine TAS novelizations, and the Bantam TOS line, in the 70s.
