De’vID’s solution of spelling them out in full is probably the best.  FWIW in my own notes I’ve used:

STConst = Star Trek Constellations anthology
ST:C = Star Trek: Continuum web site
STC #104 = Star Trek Communicator issue 104

Voragh

Thanks to both of you. This really was new to me. I've added this to the
wiki for future reference — in addition, of course, to all of your
perfectly maintained databases. wa' Dol nIvDaq matay'DI' maQap!

While doing this, I noticed we should / could / might want to find an
agreement on abbreviations. In my list, I now have the following
identical shorts. Any suggestions to distinguish?

STC     Star Trek Communicator
STC     Star Trek: Continuum
STC     Star Trek Constellations

You asked this already in 2016:

The answer hasn't changed. Don't use the abbreviation "STC" by itself.
In the {boQwI'} sources page<https://github.com/De7vID/klingon-assistant-android/blob/master/app/src/main/res/layout/sources.xml>, I use "STC 104" for the one issue of "Star Trek Communicator" which has Klingon. But otherwise, I just spell out "Star Trek: Continuum" and "Star Trek Constellations" in the entries where these appear, since they appear so rarely.
