The Amok Times Newsletter started in April 1996 as a way to provide information on Star Trek trading cards. The pages throughout this site are dedicated to the many, many sets released over the years by several companies. It includes information, statistics, images and more.
This website is a new format for me and I welcome any suggestions or thoughts. Currently, I have completed the main trading card sections such as Rittenhouse and SkyBox. I will begin working on the more oddball sections like phone cards and stickers and such next.

SkyBox Captain’s Cards

When Voyager Profiles released, it came with a Captain’s Card. SkyBox made the decision at that time that the cards were dark. So, they reprinted the 3 remaining cards using slightly different (thicker) stock and lightened them. “Gift sets” had already been sent out for the press and others that included a full set of the 4 darker cards.  These cards were unnumbered. Recently, sets showed up on ebay.
