Defiant
Voyager
USS Enterprise from 2009
Kelvin
Borg cube
Discovery

If I were DST and the new movies were suddenly on the menu, I'd want to be the first to offer the NCC-1701-A from Star Trek Beyond.

I would agree if like DST I was expecting it to arrive in a possible 4th film without major changes... Look how much the 1701 changed between Into Darkness and Beyond!

I'd expect to see the 2009 version of the Enterprise, the Kelvin and the Franklin. I'm not sure about the Vengeance?

DST produces these ships at the speed of Hallmark ornaments, don't they? I'd say anything named Enterprise usually has a greater chance of being made, especially if it can be repurposed, but either way, three ships is three years worth of product development for this line's category.

We haven't really had a completely new ship every year. I don't know if I count he NX-01 and A redo.

Well, I thought DST was finished because of this MacFarlane thing. Two new ships is sounding pretty cool!

Well I think at this point we call time on the DST Star Trek line. Whatever if ever something Star Trek comes eventually, surely its going to be something different from what weve seen in recent years.

Well.. according to the the last ask DST... DST Chuck thinks they are still making product...and this was just last week.

 

Fabricio V. 
Hello Guys! I have questions related to Star Trek: 
1- How are you on action figures now? I know that another company has licensed all Star Trek related merchandise including Discovery and it has been a while that the Khan figure is to be released. To be honest it is not a fully articulated figure and I want to know what is your position in that matter. Are you still making those figures or is Khan the last? 
2 – After the Reliant is out are you going to be focusing on ships from movies or TV? We really want Defiant and Voyager. Is a ship per year too much? 
3 – And now the props, TNG cobra phaser is almost out but what about a tricorder? Would be just awesome to have one just like you guys made the away set for TOS. 
Live long and prosper! 

DSTChuck: 
1. We are still at work on Trek figures, including the Borg and a couple new pieces. Khan has been out for a little while. 
2. At this time, we have not planned a stop to the ship line, in fact we have begun development on the ship we will do after the Reliant. 
3. We have no plans to make a Tricorder from TNG.

I'd love Voyager or the JJ Enterprise (whether the 2009 or Beyond)

I generally like the Defiant better than Voyager.  That being said I kinda hope Voyager is the next ship after the Reliant.

I'm not holding my breath for anything at all anymore. They keep announcing new items and showing pictures for all kinds of other products lines but NOTHING at all for Trek. Obviously NOT a priority for DST anymore.

Very true trekhunter, I'm still hopeful to get the TNG cobra Phaser, but after that I doubt we'll see any new Role Play.

Could the silence be a good thing though? Seems to me from that last Ask DST theyre not done with Star Trek but working on several new products.

Could all this down time be a good thing for the line?

Sometimes if you leave something long enough without releasing product and then relaunch a while later, theres renewed interest.

With the success of Star Trek: Discovery and a second season in the works, it seems to me that DST would be keen to capitalise on that success by doing product based on the forever-favourite classics and if rumour is to be true, the kelvin timeline too.

It would make good business sense to go dark with Star Trek for a number of months, and then at toy fair next February, launch a new line; perhaps sculpted by a different art team, perhaps a new direction? No more selects, more articulation and a return to more articulated figures in the black series style box packaging a lot of toy companys are following now.

Dare I say we may see a number of new figures from both the classic franchise and the new kelvin franchise?

Even further out on that limb, Id say that DST are working on Kelvin Timeline ships (The Enterprise being the first) and figures. Jaylah? Kirk? Spock? McCoy? Uhura? Khan? Nero? Spock Prime? I wouldnt be surprised if we saw some or all of those, the new kelvin timeline would make some decent action figures.

According to the latest Ask DST, Chuck would love to do a Kelvin Universe Enterprise:
 
Michael C.: Will you guys at some point do the JJ enterprise from 09 and beyond, or the kelvin. i would like to hear about that. Also, have you guys ever considered the USS Grism from Star trek III. There’s enough dialog from the captain that I’m sure it would work. And have you ever considered re doing the enterprise from star trek III.

DSTChuck: We have long wanted to do a Enterprise from the JJ movies, so we’ll have to see if that is possible in the future.

 
He also reiterated that they're developing another mystery ship after the Reliant:
 
Dave C.: Hey Chuck, will you guys be releasing a model of the U.S.S. Enterprise based on the Phase II design? I just saw the diecast miniature that is coming from Eaglemoss but a larger scale one with lights and sounds would be incredible.

DSTChuck: Right now we are working on the Reliant and starting development on the ship after that – hopefully we will have news for everyone by Toy Fair.


And in Trek-ish news, now that The Orville has gotten a second season, they may look into that property:

Damon K.: Hi, I’m a huge fan of your ship replicas and was wondering is there any chance we could see an electronic replica of the Orville. The show is amazing and I’m sure I’m not alone in wanting a toy of that ship.

DSTChuck: I think it is way too soon to consider product for that show – maybe if it gets picked up for a S2 we could look into it.

If DST made an electronic Orville, Id buy it in a heartbeat.

DST should look at The Orville, Galaxy Quest too.

You know what Id really like to see from DST... Some Big Bang Theory select figures, some Friends select figures and Frasier select figures... in no way related to Star Trek except for the mentions on each of those shows, but that would be neat I think.

Id also like to see DC Select too.
