The Hamilton Collection Logo

The Hamilton Collection is a company that primarily produces limited edition plates and is affiliated with The Bradford Exchange, Hawthorne Village, and Collectibles Today.

The company was known as Hamilton Gifts for many years and began to release Star Trek-related products under the CBS Consumer Products brand in 2008.

Star Trek association

The company was founded in 1973 and later joined forces with Paramount Pictures in a licensing agreement that has allowed them to produce numerous series of Star Trek plates, mugs, figurines, toys, and similar collectible items. Some of these items were produced for Hamilton by Applause and some items were also distributed by Enesco.

The company has produced many unique series of commemorative items, including some celebrating Star Trek's 20th, 25th, 30th, and 40th anniversaries. Characters, scenes, and starships from Star Trek films and episodes have often been depicted on their licensed products.

Lower Decks tribute

The Tom Paris Voyager plate shown in Star Trek: Lower Decks

In the Star Trek: Lower Decks episode "We'll Always Have Tom Paris", Brad Boimler is shown to have a collection of Voyager plates, and hopes Tom Paris will sign a collectable plate with his image on it. This was an in-universe tribute to the real-world Hamilton Collection plates. Although Hamilton never released individual plates for the Voyager crew, in conjunction with this episode the retailer Star Trek Unlimited released a plate identical to Boimler's Tom Paris plate.
