Romando is a Japanese company which manufactured small pre-painted plastic models of Star Trek starships in 2003 and 2004. The 1/7000 Scale Star Trek Official Museum Series was retailed in Japan as a "gashapon" toy line by Yamato Co. Ltd.

The in-scale Deep Space 9 space station and additional ships in other scales were also included in the series. Many of the smaller ships were similar in size to Galoob's Star Trek Micro Machines while the larger ones were comparable to Furuta's releases.

Ships ranged in size from three to nine centimeters in length and came with individually-labeled stands displaying Japanese text. Smaller versions of some of the ships attached to small pegs and shared display stands with their larger counterparts. A small amount of assembly was required. The "dark" versions of the ships were detailed in fluorescent paints that glowed under UV black light.
