The Making of Star Trek: The Next Generation was a trading card set produced by SkyBox and released in 1994. The set followed the creation of an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, from initial story idea to final airing.

The set came as a complete box, with three different versions available – the Collector's Edition, the Gold edition, and the Platinum edition. Each edition was limited to 50,000 sets, and each came with a different exclusive bonus – the Collector's Edition came with SkyVision discs and a viewer to use with them, the Gold edition came with a collectors' pin, while the Platinum edition came with a hologram card of the USS Enterprise-D encased in Lucite.
