Besides their line of action figures and accessories, Mego also produced several other Star Trek toys.

Star Trek Communicators

Sold in both a boxed set and a carded "blister pack", this was a pair of walkie-talkies styled after the communicators seen on the original Star Trek. They were molded primarily from blue plastic, with a button-release "cover" that flipped up like the antenna grid on the show's units.

Command Communications Console

Marketed to be compatable with the above Communicators, this was a large unit made to replicate the communications console on the Enterprise bridge.

Super Phaser II Target Game

This was a "role playing" toy that consisted of a light-emitting "Super" type 2 phaser (an enlarged, bulkier version of the standard type 2 phaser) with a "sonic buzzer device" that fired at a "target reflector badge" depicting a Klingon D7 class cruiser. Firing at the badge's large red target reflected the light back to the phaser, activating the buzzer.

NOTE: An upgraded version of this same technology would be used for the Star Trek: The Motion Picture-inspired Star Trek Phaser Guns by Milton Bradley.

Star Trek Tricorder

This was an actual, functioning portable tape recorder made to look like the tricorders from the show. Like the Communicators, this was molded primarily from blue plastic. It had a flip-up top that concealed the dial that controlled most of the recorder's functions, as well as the volume control. The tape compartment was located directly below. The unit came with a cassette tape containing 30 minutes of audio footage from "The Menagerie, Part I" and "The Menagerie, Part II" (the other side was blank, allowing you to record your own audio).

Star Trekulator

This was a fully-fuctional large desk calculator with LED readout and a light-up panel depicting artwork of Kirk, Spock and Uhura.

Star Trek Phaser Battle

Similar to the "Telescreen Console" marketed with the action figures, this was a tabletop game unit that allowed you to attack alien ships. Gameplay was a little more complex that the Telescreen, as there were more controls (especially dual buttons for port and starboard shields) to use, as well as a larger playing screen and a "digital-style" scoreboard.

Other toys

Mego also marketed a line of educational Trek-related toys, including a Intergalactic Projector (a home planetarium projector), a Crystal Radio set and other "build-it-yourself" scientific toys. They also advertised a toy tribble as part of their toy line, but it is doubtful that it was ever produced. Mission to Gamma Seven Playset
