The Nomad model was inserted into the set for Mayweather's quarters by the series' art department, rather than being scripted to appear. ("Dead Stop" audio commentary, ENT Season 4 DVD)

(TNG: "The Battle", "Hide and Q", "Too Short a Season", "The Big Goodbye")

USS Melbourne-dedication model

A Nebula-class model

In an illusion created by Barash, Admiral Picard kept a model of a D'deridex-class vessel in his office aboard the Romulan warbird IRW Decius. In that same illusion, Riker kept a model of a Nebula-class starship and another model of the Apollo 11 lunar lander. (TNG: "Future Imperfect")

The Nebula-class model was labeled with the name and registry of the USS Melbourne and was one of multiple concept models that Ed Miarecki built for "The Best of Both Worlds". The Melbourne, however, was later seen as an Excelsior-class starship. See the USS Melbourne article for more details.
The D'deridex model was an unmodified part of an AMT model kit, No. 6858.

Daedalus class model

A Daedalus-class model

Benjamin Sisko kept a model of the Daedalus-class starship in his office on Deep Space 9. In the same room, he also kept models of a Miranda-class starship and another of a Nebula-class starship and, in later years, a large model of the International Space Station, complete with a docked space shuttle. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)

The Daedalus-class model was of the USS Horizon, while the Miranda-class model was of the USS Saratoga.
The Nebula-class model, the same one as described above in "Future Imperfect" (though the two small nacelles were soon replaced by a modified sensor pod), was an inaccurate depiction of the Nebula-class version Melbourne, but as mentioned above, the Melbourne was later revealed to be an Excelsior-class starship.

Keiko O'Brien's classroom aboard Deep Space 9 featured five starship models, including Miranda-, Galaxy-, Daedalus-, and Nebula-class starships as well as one other, unidentified vessel. (DS9: "The Nagus")

Models in Admiral Leyton's offce

The observation lounge aboard the USS Enterprise-E contained display cases with golden models of all six Federation starships named USS Enterprise. During the Enterprise's trip to the year 2063, some of the models were broken when Captain Picard slammed a phaser rifle into the case. (Star Trek: First Contact) The models were eventually replaced. (Star Trek Nemesis)

John Eaves constructed the golden models from commercially available model kits. See the studio model sections of the Constitution-class, Ambassador-class, Galaxy-class, and Sovereign-class for more background information.

Captain Picard also kept a transparent model of the USS Enterprise-E in his ready room aboard the ship. (Star Trek: First Contact; Star Trek Nemesis)

Only the shadow of this model appears in Star Trek: First Contact and it is entirely absent from Star Trek: Insurrection. The model was a transparent acrylic cast, taken from the study model John Eaves made of the Sovereign-class. This model was sold in the May 2008 It's A Wrap! sale and auction for US$48,000. [1]

Jake Sisko, as a child, played with starship models. When he took an interest in Bajoran girls, his father playfully asked him, "Wasn't it a few weeks ago that you were playing with model starships?" Jake, however, corrected him by reminding him that it was more like "a few years ago." (DS9: "Move Along Home")

Alamo model, The changing face of evil

The Alamo

Miles O'Brien spent many years of his childhood building model starship engines. (TNG: "All Good Things...") By his adulthood, he had moved on to creating historical models, including a scale model of the Alamo compound in 2375. (DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil") When his daughter, Molly, was attempting to touch the model, Miles shooed her away and told her that "it's a model, not a toy." Keiko sarcastically added that, if that was the case, "then maybe it belongs in a museum." (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")
