Hot Wheels Star Trek starship models

Since 2009 Hot Wheels have released a number of model Star Trek starships. The collection so far includes ships from TOS, TNG, and nuTrek. Most of the ships have been part of a mid-scale series, where ships are typically about fifteen centimeters on the longest side. There are also a few releases as part of Hot Wheels smaller model-car series, which are about seven centimeters long.

Most of the mid-scale ships have been released in waves of four to six ships. The third was was released as a multi-pack with the board game Star Trek Scene It?.

This list is split into the two scales, in release order by the initial release of any ship class (with any subsequent variants listed immediately after) within each section.
