The second wave for the toyline was Michael Burnham and Spock, which is in development and production.

The development of the Star Trek line was featured in the "Star Trek" episode of The Toys That Made Us in 2018.

Another toy in the line was the Discovery phaser, which was cancelled after having a controversy about toy guns in the US and problems on pre-ordering.
