The Franklin Mint is American company which was founded in 1964 in Wawa, Pennsylvania by Joseph Segel. It markets an extensive array of collectibles based on a wide variety of subjects and licensed franchises.

Over the years, the company has produced many licensed Star Trek products including collectible plates, pewter figures, dioramas, tankards, clocks, belt buckles, jewelry, ceramic mugs, coins, games, and starship replicas.

Interactions with Star Trek productionsEdit

In the episode "Peak Performance", Michael Dorn's Worf character kept a metallic model of a D7-class Klingon battle cruiser in his quarters. This model was used again as a background prop in Drafting Room 5 on Mars Station in the "Booby Trap" episode. The model was actually an unmodified nine-inch 1989 evaluation prototype from The Franklin Mint's pewter Star Trek starships line.

Wil Wheaton's Wesley Crusher character kept a metallic model of a Constitution-class vessel in his room at the Starfleet Academy campus in "The First Duty". This model was actually an unmodified ten-inch pewter USS Enterprise model (#810) released by The Franklin Mint in 1988.

In "The Visitor", Tony Todd portrayed an elderly Jake Sisko who existed in alternate reality's mid-25th century. A Franklin Mint Deep Space 9 model can be seen as a set decoration in the living room of Jake's Louisiana home.

The Franklin Mint's "Zefram Cochrane's Phoenix" pewter replica was utilized in three episodes as display models seen in Admiral Maxwell Forrest's office. The Phoenix also appeared as one of Travis Mayweather's childhood models which were kept aboard the ECS Horizon.
