F-Toys Star Trek starship models

F-Toys is a Japanese maker of small models, which come packaged with sweets. They have released several Star Trek ships, starting in 2008, with the Star Trek Fleet Collection. Most of the same ships from that original series were reissued in 2016, and there have also been mirror universe variants of some designs.

The ships often require some limited assembly to complete them up, and come with an adjustable display base, with text describing the ship.

This list is in release order.

Star Trek Hallmark Keepsake decorations

Hallmark's Keepsake range is a huge ongoing series of Christmas decorations, featuring characters and other designs from numerous properties, including Star Trek. The first Star Trek design, a model of the USS Enterprise was released in 1991, and there have been new Star Trek ornaments every year ever since, with between one and six new Star Trek designs available every year.

The Star Trek offerings tend to fall into three categories: Models of ships, which have featured every year since the first Star Trek piece in the range. Figurines of individual characters, sometimes with sections of a location, which have featured almost every year since 1995. And dioramas featuring multiple characters and/or sections of locations, most often recreating specific moments from episodes and movies; these have been a regular feature in the range since 2004. There have been a handful of other formats as well, including more traditional glass decorations, props, and even a postage stamp. Many of the ornaments feature light or sound effects.

This list is split into the four, collecting together the starships range, figurines, dioramas, and a fourth category cover other releases. Within each section the lists are in reverse release order, with the latest designs at the top of the section.
