Who is Arex?

You will only know of Arex if you are a Star Trek super fan or you have such excellent recall you can summon the long ago memories of childhood Saturday mornings.  Arex was voiced by our very own James Doohan on the two-season animated series.

Source: StarTrek.com

Arex, an Edosian (Triexian) possessed of his tripodal species’ characteristic orange skin and six limbs (three arms and three legs, with three digits on each hand and foot), began serving as a navigator aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise on stardate 5371.3 (2269).

Later that year, on stardate 7403.6, the versatile Lieutenant Arex manned the bridge science station, from which he scanned the surface of Delta Theta III in search of Captain Kirk and Commander Spock.

Arex has been in Starfleet for many years. He is known as the best navigator in the fleet. Before he entered the service as a technician, he spent 10 years in the merchant space fleet. While Arex is an officer, and a good one, he is not a product of Starfleet Academy. He worked his way up through the ranks, becoming an officer via a “field commission” during a battle involving the Klingons and the small cruiser aboard which he was then serving. It is not fair to say Arex has never been to Starfleet Academy — he spent two years there some time ago, as a space navigation instructor. One of his high-scoring students was a young Russian named Pavel Chekov.

His reflexes are quick, and he can move with great speed when necessary. In an emergency, he can operate the complex helm-navigation console by himself.

Arex is a thoughtful being, given to long silences. There are times when he retreats to the solitude of his quarters to deliberate … or perhaps to worship the many gods of Edos. One never knows, for Arex never speaks of these moments of isolation.

Arex has no brothers or sisters. In fact, it is highly unusual for there to be more than one child per family on his home planet Edos. The population must be kept down due to the longer life factor. 

Aboard ship, Arex often keeps to himself. However, when the mood is right, he can be persuaded to play a flute-like instrument called a sessica. Arex also can be persuaded — at very rare moments — to display a special proficiency in sleight-of-hand, a trick he picked up while in the merchant space service. Arex is entitled to wear three decorations for bravery and has a Starfleet Citation for Conspicuous Valor.  Read more…

Who is M’Ress?

So…you’re a Star Trek fan but not a STAR TREK FAN. You may or may not know who the latest character Hallmark is honoring for an ornament. Voiced by the queen of Star Trek herself, Majel  Barrett.  M’Ress was only seen on Star Trek: The Animated Series and never appeared on any of the live-action television series or films.

Source: StarTrek.com

A native of the planet Cait, M’Ress is a humanoid feline covered with thick orange fur and sporting large incisors, golden eyes with catlike vertical pupils, and a long tail. Her purring speech makes her a natural communicator, which may partly account for her posting aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise as a relief communications officer, which began at about stardate 5143.3 (2269).

M’Ress graduated from Starfleet Academy in 2266, and rose to the rank of lieutenant in only two years. She is a specialist in communications and computer translator systems. Prior to joining the Enterprise crew, she served aboard a scout ship and the U.S.S. Hood NCC-1703.

M’Ress amuses herself in off-duty hours with the pursuit of Federation and galactic histories and the writing of free-form poetry. She also pursues an interest in anthropology and archaeology, subjects which relate to the histories she studies.

Among the crew personnel, M’Ress is well-liked and includes among her close friends Uhura and Nurse Christine Chapel. The distinctive “purr” in her voice is immediately arresting when she speaks, and she is a popular actress in the ship’s small theatre company.

M’Ress’ three littermates also serve in Starfleet in various capacities. The long line of her ancestors in well-known on Cait, and her parents are honored citizens. M’Ress herself is quiet about her family’s rank. Read more…

Third Annual Hallmark Star Trek Ornament Predictions

Last year’s predictions discussed the possibility of a Star Trek: The Animated Series ornament and a Discovery ornament and in 2018 we got both.  2018 also gave us “The Naked Time” ornament which we gave 3:1 odds back in our 2017 predictions.

Possible Future Character Ornaments

Michael Burnham as the lead of the two year old series Discovery is very likely as a character ornament. Odds: 2:1

Captain Philippa Georgiou. Odds: 19:1

Captain Gabriel Lorca. Odds: 42:1 

 

Possible Future Ship Ornaments

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B has been mysteriously absent from the Hallmark lineup. A strong contender for a Event Exclusive ornament. Odds: 6:1

At some point we should expect Discovery’s design of the original U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 from the first season finale. Odds: 7:1  

Star Trek: Discovery’s other ship, U.S.S. Shenzhou may be another angle at promoting Star Trek’s latest series. Odds: 12:1

Is the V’Ger likely to show up next season? Probably not but with The Final Frontier’s 30th Anniversary it is a long shot. Odds: 82:1

 

Possible Future Scene Ornaments

Two words: “Spock’s Brain”. Odds: 3:1

There is no gray area on the reception a “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield” ornament would be. Odds: 5:1

The time has never been more right than to release a “Plato’s Stepchildren” ornament celebrating Kirk and Uhura’s groundbreaking kiss. Odds: 8:1

A “Space Seed” ornament could revisit the popular Khan character that was first ornamentalized in 2005. Odds: 8:1

Nothing would be better than a Kirk ornament shouting “Khaaaaan!”. The Star Trek II scene has become a staple in the public lexicon. Odds: 14:1

With the Star Trek: Generations 25th Anniversary coming in 2019 we may get a scene depicting Picard beside a dying Kirk. Not very Christmasy? Look no further than 2015’s “The Needs of the Many” ornament. Odds: 23:1

“The Corbomite Maneuver” would be favorite among fans but lost on the general public. Odds: 250:1

 

Possible Future Prop Ornaments

Just sci-fi looking enough to possibly sneak in as a Christmas weapon ornament, the Phaser Rifle has a decent shot. Odds: 18:1

The Laser Pistol is more modern day sidearm than futuristic weapon. Odds: 30:1

Hallmark has given us the phaser, the communicator, the tricorder and even the transporter chamber, so what is left? Maybe a scene from the Next Generation Holodeck. Odds: 37:1
