V.1 N.1

front cover, Rick Endres
back cover, Richard G. Pollet

Where No Man Has Gone Before v.1 n.1 was published in 1979 (reprinted in September 1981) and contains 70 pages. It is a gen Star Trek: TOS anthology.

While it was labeled as the first issue, and the editorial speaks of a second issue, it appears that the publication was folded into Randall Lander's zine, Stardate.

The front cover is by Rick Endres, the back by Richard G. Pollet, other art by Pollet and Rick and Terry Endres.


The zine's dedication:

The dedication of this premiere issue is, first and foremost, to Mr. Gene Roddenberry, the Great Bird of the Galaxy, without whose awesome vision and creativity all this wonderful insanity of the past fifteen years would never have occurred.

We would also like to pay tribute to all those fantastic people around us who put up with the insanity and bore with us during the production of this 'zine.
The zine's editorial by Rick Endres:

Well, we've finally done it! After what seemed like months and months of preparation, delays and deadlines, we've gotten the premiere issue of WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE off the ground. In future issues,, this particular page will be an open forum a page where we intend to publish our readers' letters and commanders [sic], and also our own feelings and ideas. We invite all of you to drop us a line to let us know how we're doing. Let us know what you like, and also what you don't like. We want to be in tune with our readers' attitudes.

It has been really exciting (and hectic!) getting this first zine out, but as you're reading this, we're already starting to put together our next issue. We'd like to encourage our readers to send us their stories, artwork, etc., so we can consider them for publication. We are always in need of material; this zine is primarily Star Trek oriented, as you can tell, but we're also on the lookout for fans' original science fiction and fantasy material, stories based on characters and situations from other science fiction TV series, books and movies, and reviews or essays on particular Trek and sf books, TV episodes, and movies. There will be no sensorship [sic]; however, we expect writers to use good taste and judgment. Editing will be kept to-a minimum. Plot, situations, and dialogue will be left basically intact. We like to correct for spelling, usage and grammar mistakes (except where they are used for effect in dialogue). We think you'd have as much fun seeing your story or article in print as we have putting the mag together for you, so good luck, and start writing!

At this time the editors would also like to thank two gentlemen for their invaluable assistance in helping us get our act together. Richard G. Pollet and Randall Landers (editors of their own Star Trek fanzines. Captain's Log and Stardate respectively) deserve a tip of the cap. In addition to sending short stories which are published in this issue. Rick and Randy were more than kind in filling us in on the ups and downs of starting up a publications such as this one. Again, many, many thanks, guys!

We hope to have WHERE NO MAN...#2 ready in 1982, Please send us your comments about this issue, and also any material of your own that you'd like to see published. We hope to have a very interesting Subspace Chatter in the next zine.

Included in the Reprint

Randall Landers adds in the reprint:

The above information is correct; WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE has been reactivated to be printed in 1982 as a sister publication to STARDATE. Editor Rick Endres is going to be in complete control of his fanzine, and we hope that you are interested in this project.

I'd like to thank Rick for allowing me to reprint his first issue as part of STARDATE PRESS, The issue stands to be one of the best first issues I've ever seen, and I thought I'd like to see it in print again. Thanks, Rick!

It seems a little strange to be writing something new in this fanzine of mine that has been defunct for almost two years now, but I wanted to say a few words to update things a bit.

First of all, I'd like to sincerely thank Randy Landers, editor of STARDATE, for reprinting the original issue of WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE, and for granting me the opportunity to develop my skills as a writer and artist by working as co-editor on his zine. Serving on the staff of STARDATE has been a great experience for me. Indeed, it reminded me how much fun (?) it was to work on WHERE NO MAN... This - coupled with some judicious prodding from Randy - has brought about the decision to revive WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE on an annual basis, beginning in 1982.

Serving with me on the staff of WNM will be associate editors Linda Mclnnis and (who else?) the redoubtable Randall A. Landers. By utilizing their fine talents and the experience I've gained on STARDATE - not to mention enjoying the relaxed deadline of an annual zine - we hope to make WHERE NO MAN one of the finest zines on the market.

My thanks to all those who supported WHERE NO MAN in its original run, and to all the new fans who have ordered this special reprint. And my thanks in advance for your support of our future efforts!
