Chronological list of "studio models" in Star Trek: The Animated Series. While most of these designs were never strictly speaking a "model" due to the series being animated, they would have been if the format was different.

This list is of all new model designs that first appeared in The Animated Series. Information on models that represented a single design can be found in the articles linked below. Information on models that were recycled or refurbished to represent different vessels or props from different species in all series will be listed herein.
