Issue 137 (US issue #10) of Star Trek Magazine was the March/April 2008 issue. This issue focused specifically on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of the series' premiere.

From this issue, the magazine was reduced in size – from 9 inches wide x 12 inches high to 8 x 11. For this issue, and future 100-page specials, a different binding format was used – the magazine was perfect bound instead of saddle-stitched.
