In the mid seventies, it was the height of Mego toys and the height of Star Trek in syndication. Mego acquired the rights to manufacture Star Trek action figures. In the span of the next two years they would increase their number from five figures to fourteen. They would soon manufacture other Star Trek toys (including tricorders, phasers, and communicators); all of the figures and toys would become hot collectors items. However, after revolutionizing the Action Figure business in the seventies with their innovative body style, Mego would eventually go out of business by the early eighties, partly due to bad choices in toy lines. This site is a record of Mego's involvement with Star Trek during their height.
