The Star Trek Commemorative Checker Set was produced by The Franklin Mint in 1995, presumably around the same time as their release of the Star Trek: The Next Generation Commemorative Chess Set. Like its predecessor, this was meant to be a companion piece to the TNG chess set.

This was a standard set of checkers produced in pewter and plated in either 24-karat gold or sterling silver. The gold checkers depicted the USS Enterprise-D on one side and the 2360s Federation combadge on the other. The silver checkers depicted the Borg cube on one side and the Borg insignia on the other.

The set was sold in a special collector's case, along with its own square glass checker board that emulated the style of the TNG Chess Set's board.
