2020 Star Trek Storytellers Hanging Around

Kevin Dilmore has announced that the 2020 Hallmark Star Trek Storyteller ornaments will be available until the entire series has been produced.  This means Kirk, Sulu, Uhura and the Enterprise tree topper will be available to purchase in 2021 and 2022.

We still have Spock, McCoy, Scotty and Chekov to be released over the next two years. Although there hasn’t been any official announcement, it is likely we will see Spock and Scotty in 2021 and McCoy and Chekov in the final year.

Whichever ornaments are released next year they will be available in both 2021 and 2022.  There is still no word if the 2021-2022 Star Trek releases will be exclusively Storytellers or if we will see other Star Trek ornaments. With all the new Star Trek series that have and will be coming out it is hard to imagine we won’t see something from Picard or Lower Decks.

Positively Trek: Kevin Dilmore on 2020 Ornaments

CE4E2835-D6C9-4EF2-9B70-B95CDF841684In this week’s Positively Trek, Dan and Bruce are joined by veteran Star Trek authors Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. We talk about the Lower Decks trailer, as well as an in-depth discussion about that dreaded C-word when it comes to Star Trek: Canon! Dayton’s role as the “Keeper of Canon” for CBS’s Star Trek projects gives him a unique perspective on this age-old question that continues to rear its ugly head within the fandom.

We also talk with Kevin Dilmore about this year’s truly unique and groundbreaking Star Trek Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments!

Ornament discussion begins at 46:13.

2020 Tribble Convention Exclusive Preorders on eBay

Preorders for this year’s convention exclusive Tribble are beginning to show up on eBay.  Hallmark has yet to announce how the Tribble will be made available since most of the conventions have been cancelled/postponed due to COVID-19.  Convention exclusive ornaments have always been available for preorder in year’s past from convention goers.  The current price of $119.99 is on the high side of the typical $80-$120 the exclusives typically fetch this early in the game.  The Tribble will be made available originally at $20.

2020 Hallmark Ornament Premiere: Proceed With Caution

Hallmark Ornament Premiere is this week beginning  July 11, 2020. In typical years it would be common to see customers lined up around the store waiting for the doors to open.  It is uncertain what this year will bring.  Will stores implement measures limiting access? Will consumers simply shop from home?

The only official word found on Hallmark’s website about the Premiere during the COVID-19 outbreak is a simple line stating contact your local store “to learn how this year’s event might be different”.

The seriousness of COVID-19 should not be understated and Hallmark Corporation should not leave procedures up to the individual stores.  The Hallmark Ornament Premiere is there biggest event of the year where you typically find customers shopping shoulder-to-shoulder, consistently reaching over and in front of others.  The checkout line is commonly 30-50 people deep as it winds in and out of each aisle.  There is literally no place to avoid others in yea’s past.

Hopefully, the individual stores will make the right decisions to make it as safe as possible for the consumers and their employees.  I emailed Hallmark ten days ago, on June 30th, with my concerns and have yet to get a reply.

Below is a copy of my inquiry followed by the automated response:

What procedures are you implementing at your stores to insure the safety of your customers during the upcoming Hallmark Ornament Premiere? I am concerned if you leave it up to the individual stores they will not take the full precautions. In past years the Hallmark displays have taken up approximately 12’-15’ of wall space.  Can more than two customers shop safely while socially distancing at 6’?

We still haven’t heard from Hallmark as of this post. So we will say what they should be saying…

Hallmark ornament collectors and fans,

Please be extra cautious this year.  Shop online, reserve ornaments with your local store limiting your time for pick up only, avoid the opening Premiere weekend when customer traffic will be at its highest, call your local store and ask when there slower times during the week tend to be, ask them what safety measures they are taking.

2020 has been a trying year. Hopefully, 2021 brings a return to normalcy.  Stay vigilant. Continue taking the necessary precautions not only this weekend but until we have gotten though this.

  • wear a mask
  • wash your hands regularly 
  • socially distance by at least 6’
  • limit your time indoors when in public

Stay safe!
Thank you for visiting Hallmark Star Trek Ornaments.

 

Update! Email received the day after the Saturday premiere…

Comic-Con@Home – July 22-26, 2020

Source: Toucan

San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual comics and pop culture convention Comic-Con, today shared details for an initiative in the works, Comic-Con@Home, an online event that will combine aspects of the convention experience with the comforts of home. Circumstances involving the COVID-19 pandemic and California’s restrictions against large gatherings have forced SDCC to cancel their 2020 international celebration that brings fans and professionals from all over the world to San Diego. Comic-Con@Home was first teased in early May with a short video announcement and a promise of details to come. Pop culture enthusiasts will note that this initiative joins the Comic-Con Museum’s virtual endeavor, Comic-Con Museum@Home, already ongoing.

Although Comic-Con@Home will provide badges for fans to print and wear proudly, all aspects of the initiative are free and there are no limits to how many can attend. “For the first time in our 50-year history, we are happy to welcome virtually anyone from around the globe,” said SDCC spokesperson David Glanzer. “Though stay-at-home conditions make this a very difficult time, we see this as an opportunity to spread some joy and strengthen our sense of community.” Comic-Con@Home will be held on the same dates as the previously canceled Comic-Con, July 22-26, 2020.

2020 Star Trek Las Vegas Moves to December

Official Announcement:


IMPORTANT UPDATE: June 5, 2020

The Official Star Trek Las Vegas Convention Moving to NEW DATE and VENUE!
Admission Passes and Tickets Have Been Temporarily Taken Off Sale But Will Be Back Soon!

During these challenging times, the safety of our Star Trek convention attendees, celebrities and staff is the utmost importance to us. We have continued to monitor the local, federal and international protocols concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we had hoped that our Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas could take place in August, due to the unprecedented circumstances, we must postpone and move to a new venue.

The 19th Annual Star Trek Convention’s NEW DATE is now December 9-13, 2020 and is beaming into Caesars Forum Conference Center Las Vegas, the brand-new state of the art, $375 million facility located in the heart of the famed Las Vegas Strip! Caesars Forum Conference Center features direct access to our new host hotel, the newly renovated Harrah’s Las Vegas! 

William Shatner, Walter Koenig, Kelsey Grammer and more guests have confirmed the new date, and we are currently working on more confirmations. Please check the website for updates!

If you wish to hold your same seat or general admission, as well as a la carte autograph and photo op tickets, you do not need to do anything. Your tickets and same seating will be transferred to the new date and updated tickets will be sent to you via the email address you used at the time of purchase within a few weeks. Your original ticket will no longer be valid.

Attendees must cancel their hotel reservations at this time. We will have revised booking links shortly so you can re-book your hotel reservations for the new date.

As for flight cancellations, many air carriers have amended their policies and procedures during this health crisis to accommodate customers. Please contact your airlines directly for information.

If you’d like a refund for the Star Trek Vegas Convention, please contact customer.service@creationent.com. The deadline for refund requests for the convention is June 19, 2020 (please include your invoice number and the convention name/city in your email).  If you do not request a refund by the deadline, your admission passes and a la carte photo op and autograph tickets will be transferred to the new date. Refunds will begin to be processed after the deadline date. Please allow up to 8 weeks from the deadline date for your request to be processed.

We appreciate your patience and continued support and look forward to seeing everyone in December!

Until we can all safely meet to celebrate all things Star Trek,
Your friends at Creation Entertainment

Star Trek Las Vegas Still Scheduled for August 

Even with the COVID-19 virus making its 2020 squeeze on the world, Star Trek Las Vegas still has plans on proceeding.  Creation Entertainment is getting pushback from fans as they continue to sell tickets for the August event.


Official announcement:

Dear fellow Star Trek fans:

We hope you have been staying safe and healthy during this challenging time. While Creation has been social distancing as a team, we are still working hard to make the upcoming Official Star Trek Convention a grand celebration of Gene Roddenberry’s legacy for a hopeful future.  The event is set for August 5-9, 2020 at The Rio All-Suites Resort and Casino in fabulous Las Vegas.

As we currently have 71 Star Trek celebrities attending, we are on our way to getting over 100 stars and will feature a non-stop five days of fun. Our top-tiered Gold Convention Admission Packages, the most upscale way to attend the entire convention, are nearly sold out and will be removed from sale by Monday, April 27.

We also only have a few Captain’s Chair Admission Packages still available and today we have put on sale Copper Convention Packages and General Admission Convention Packages. Preferred (Reserved) Single Day and General Admission Single Day Tickets will be coming soon.

As something to look forward to this summer, we can’t wait to spend another truly intergalactic time in Vegas!

Your devoted Trekker friends at Creation Entertainment

New Series Announced! Star Trek: Strange New Worlds


CBS Announcement:

The Star Trek universe is adding another new series to its ranks!

CBS All Access has ordered a full series of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, based on the years where Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) helms the U.S.S. Enterprise.

The series will feature Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 fan favorites Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One, and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock.

The series will follow the trio in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.

“Fans fell in love with Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck’s portrayals of these iconic characters when they were first introduced on Star Trek: Discovery last season,” said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, CBS All Access. “This new series will be a perfect complement to the franchise, bringing a whole new perspective and series of adventures to Star Trek.”

“When we said we heard the fans’ outpouring of love for Pike, Number One, and Spock when they boarded Star Trek: Discovery last season, we meant it,” said Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman. “These iconic characters have a deep history in Star Trek canon, yet so much of their stories have yet to be told. With Akiva and Henry at the helm, the Enterprise, its crew, and its fans are in for an extraordinary journey to new frontiers in the Star Trek universe.”

“This is a dream come true, literally,” said Executive Producer Akiva Goldsman. “I have imagined myself on the bridge of the Enterprise since the early 1970s. I’m honored to be a part of this continuing journey along with Alex, Henry, and the fine folks at CBS.”

The series premiere was written by Akiva Goldsman with a story by Goldsman, Kurtzman, and Jenny Lumet. Goldsman, Kurtzman, and Lumet will serve as executive producers in addition to Henry Alonso Myers, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth.

Aaron Baiers, Akela Cooper, and Davy Perez will serve as co-executive producers. Goldsman will remain an executive producer and a key part of the creative team on Star Trek: Picard as well.

The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios, Secret Hideout, and Roddenberry Entertainment.

2020 San Diego Comic-Con Cancelled


For the first time in its 50-year history San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual pop culture celebration, announced today with deep regret that there will be no Comic-Con in 2020. The event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021.

“Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for the organization. “We eagerly look forward to the time when we can all meet again and share in the community we all love and enjoy.”

We will continue to update where and if there will be availability of the Event Exclusive 2020 Tribble ornament.

2020 Hallmark Pricing, Part 5 – The Final Chapter

This will be the last post about Hallmark pricing for 2020.  In my response to their last email to me I asked why the equivalent Harry Potter Storytellers are cheaper than their Star Trek counterparts and below you will find their response.

Hopefully, the higher prices don’t drive away fans.

Keep Collecting the Future!

2020 Hallmark Pricing, Part 4 – Hallmark Response Received

We have been covering not only the price hike in the Star Trek Storytellers series but also the discrepancies between the Dream Book and Hallmark’s official website.

April 05, 2020 – Part 1

April 10, 2020 – Part 2

April 10, 2020 – Part 3

Well, I said I would post Hallmark’s response when it was received and here it is.  I’ll let it speak for itself.

2020 Hallmark Star Trek Ornament Pricing

The 2020 Dream Book is now available to KOC members in physical form and a virtual catalog is available for download on Hallmark’s website.  Hallmark has also posted the 2020 ornaments on their website.  Unfortunately, the two do not jive.  Hallmark’s website has the expected prices of $29.99 for Uhura, Kirk and Sulu and $119.99 for the Enterprise.

The Dream Book is listing inflated prices of $34.99 for the character ornaments and $149.99 for the Tree Topper.

2020 San Diego Comic-Con Still On

As of now, the 2020 San Diego Comic-Con, scheduled for a July, has not been cancelled. For anyone who had plans to go it is a certainty that it will be cancelled this year. The convention has always been a hot bed for “the funk”. Anytime you get that many people together in such a tight space it is inevitable that everyone catches everything.

Thinking this year’s convention is still a possibility is foolish. It is almost certain that next year’s SDCC will also be cancelled unless a vaccine has been found by then. We are living in different times.

Our thoughts are with everyone and their families across the globe. Stay safe!

A Message from Hallmark

At Hallmark, we recognize the role we play in your relationships and your lives. The health and well-being of our employees and our customers are our top priority. As the situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, I want to take a moment and share an update.

Hallmark set up a task force several weeks ago that continues to monitor the situation. We are tracking the information provided by public health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Utilizing their guidance, we are taking precautions to protect our employees and our customers. We are temporarily closing our Crayola Experience locations nationwide. Some of our independent retailers who own and operate Hallmark stores in our retail network have also temporarily closed their locations. This is a rapidly-changing situation that is impacting countries, states and cities differently. Our teams are making decisions based on the most recent information provided by the CDC, WHO, and local public health agencies and government officials, while keeping the health and safety of our employees and customers in mind.

We understand many of you may be feeling isolated as public health officials encourage us to distance ourselves from others and community events are canceled. I encourage you to continue to find ways to connect with your loved ones during this time. Make a phone call, video chat with a friend, send a handwritten note in the mail, spend time with your child doing art projects, enjoy a movie night in with your family. Emotional wellness is just as important as physical well-being. As you take precautions to keep your family physically healthy, don’t forget to take a moment for yourself.

Hallmark’s Complete 30-Year Line of Enterprise Ornaments

Star Trek ships by the name of Enterprise have been represented by Hallmark 23 times over the past thirty years. Here is a complete list of every Enterprise Hallmark ornament released and those Enterprises that have been missed.

Enterprise NX-01 (2002)
Lynn Norton: “It’s a very cool ship. In my mind, it typified what a starship should look like even more so than the original Enterprise. I always had a bit of a problem with a primary hull and this secondary hull sticking out from it and then your engines are way in the air on these pylons. I always imagine that there is something happening in these engines that would harm the crew, so you want them as far away from the crew and even the engineering section as possible. The NX-01 was integrated. It is sculpturally more pleasing to me.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Pilot Episode-50th Anniversary* (2016)
Box text: The very first Starfleet vessel to bear the name U.S.S. Enterprise is rendered here to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its iconic journey into the Final Frontier. Based on the series’ pilot episode, this gold-hued Enterprise ornament lets you hear Captain Kirk’s monologue and the iconic music from the opening credits of the Star Trek TV series!

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Pilot Episode-50th Anniversary* (2016)
Box text: U.S.S. Enterprise – Featuring dialogue and music directly from the original “Star Trek” TV Series, this Keepsake Ornament depicts the iconic starship as originally built and painted for special-effects filming. This is a repaint of a 2016 Keepsake Ornament celebrating Star Trek’s 50th anniversary.  Limited quantity of 3,450.

Lynn Norton: “This is the one that I really went out of my way to make as accurate as possible. I based it on the original shooting model with its larger bridge dome, larger deflector dish and nacelle features as a tribute to the series’ 50th anniversary. Assuming it’s able to maintain all of its details in final production, it’s more accurate than anything I’ve done before.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 (1991)
Box text: This unique ornament, with its bright blinking lights, commemorates the 25th anniversary of STAR TREK and celebrates the holiday season.

Lynn Norton: ”From the beginning, Star Trek imagined that we had overcome the problem of a ship having enough energy not only to propel yourself but to give yourself a comfortable living environment. As a design, it captured our excitement from the notion of flying saucer and the way we had come to imagine what a deep-space vehicle might look like. When you start thinking of the physics of propelling an object through space, it doesn’t have to look aerodynamic. It can be purely functional. The fact that it was a flying saucer is one of the things that captured my imagination right away. All space movies are really submarine movies. The Enterprise reflects all the elements of a submarine crew’s experience — living in close quarters in a hostile environment with nothing but a thin metal skin between them and oblivion — and put it in space seamlessly. At Hallmark, Don Palmiter, Dill Rhodus and I brought fine scale model-making to the ornament business. We really had to convince our art directors we could go beyond cute and traditional and make really believable small models to be used as ornaments. Our commitment to high quality fit right into the Hallmark ideals for product. Now, I also had to fight the initial idea of having a string of garland hanging along the edge of the primary hull, and Santa Claus popping out of the bridge — true story! I wanted to make it as accurate as possible. I’m very aware of the changes to that first ornament. Because it had big, thick circuitry inside for lights, the ornament had heat dissipation problems. We had to build a big cavity into it so the circuit board would not melt the plastic. Also, the ornament had to fit into a ‘printer’s box’ store display with a limited space, and I had to shorten the nacelles for it to fit. I beat that poor design nearly to death, but it got us started and it was very popular with fans of Star Trek and of Keepsake Ornaments. When we reissued the ornament in 1996 for the show’s 30th anniversary, we used the same design.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Ships of Star Trek Minis* (1995)
Box text: This set of three miniature Hallmark ornaments feature smaller versions of previoulsy released Hallmark keepsake ornaments – The Starship Enterprise from the original tv series, U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D, and the Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek: The Next Generation. These miniature ornaments can hang independently, or be hung from the 2001 Space Station Deep Space Nine Hallmark ornament. When combined with the 2001 Starfleet Legends, you can create your own miniature Star Trek fleet.


U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *30th Anniversary* (1996)

Box text: This 1996 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament set features the voice of Captain James T. Kirk, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701, and the shuttlecraft Galileo NCC 1701/7. This Star Trek Hallmark Ornament features sound: A starfleet communicator as it is opened, as used by Enterprise crew members on the hit television show, followed by the voice of William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, and his famous opening for the show: “Space… the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: To explore strange new worlds… to seek out new life and new civilizations… to boldly go where no man has gone before…”.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Blown Glass* (1999)

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Stamp* (1999)
Box text:  Beginnning in 1998, the United States Postal Service issued its largest-ever series of commemoritive postage stamps.  By the time the program is completed in 2000. A total of 150 designs will have been released, providing a decade-by-decade look at significant personalities and events of the 20th Century. Authentic reproductions of six noteworthy designs are featured in the 1999 Keepsake Ornament line.  Each one is showcased in its own unique frame that enhances  the artwork and the enjoyment of the familiar images.  Ideal for holiday or year-round decorating, or to display with a collection of Celebrate the Century commemorative stamps, these ornaments will be cherished well into the next century.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *40th Anniversary* (2006)
Box text: A flagship of Starfleet, U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 embarked on its historic five-year mission in 2264. Commanded by Captain James T. Kirk, the STARSHIP ENTERPRISE transported us to the final frontier for unparalleled adventure. During their exploration, the ship and crew introduced us to life on new planets and unimaginable technologies. As an ambassador for Earth and the rest of the United Federation of Planets, the ENTERPRISE gave us an inspiring vision of the future. Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original Star Trek television series with this authentic representation of the first ship “to boldly go where no man has gone before.” To see this ornament come to life, place it on the included display stand. Press the button on the back of the stand to hear the theme song from the original TV series and see various lights on the ship illuminated. The lights will automatically turn off after 20 seconds.

Lynn Norton: “Look at the original Enterprise and you see basic geometric shapes. Almost everything on that original ship, I can execute on my miniature lathe and miniature mill. As we start moving through more complex designs, there became fewer and fewer things I could make on the lathe. They became more oval-shaped, there were detailed ridges and recesses that didn’t appear that much on the original Enterprise except for the interior of the nacelles. They added details to the models as time went on. This was my more accurate sculpting of the original ship design. It felt redemptive in that I was able to get it closer to scale. There is a difference in end product versus what I sculpted because of the process to build a master pattern that is used to cut the molds. You end up with process shrinkage and distortion, and in 2006, that didn’t make me happy. The saucer got too thin. They weren’t able to keep the nacelles properly aligned to the center axis. It’s not just us. That’s been a problem for every manufacturer who makes this ship into a consumer product. I just wanted to do something a little different than I had done before.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 (2018)
Box text: The flagship of Starfleet, U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 embarked on its historic five-year mission under Captain James T. Kirk in 2265. The ship and crew introduced Star Trek™ viewers to the final frontier with unparalleled adventure, life on new worlds and unimaginable technologies. An homage to the classic series and its legacy of more than 50 years, this premium Christmas tree ornament is rendered in metal, an essential addition to any Star Trek™ collection.


U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Tree Topper* (2020)
Promotional info: The Storyteller Enterprise Tree Topper ornament tells a different story depending on the combination of other ornaments in the series connected via a Keepsakes power cord.  These Storyteller ornaments will be based upon characters from the Star Trek episode “Mirror, Mirror”.  Look for Mirror Sulu, Mirror Kirk and Mirror Uhura in 2020 and more Storytellers coming in 2021 and 2022.

I.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Mirror Universe* (2019)
Box text: When a transporter malfunction during an ion storm flung Captain James T. Kirk and three of his officers into another dimension, they found themselves on board the I.S.S. Enterprise, a Terran Empire battle cruise nearly identical in configuration to the ship they called home.  This “mirror universe” Imperial Star Ship Enterprise featured dagger-and-Earth symbols as decór, armed soldiers in every corridor, and torture chambers called agony booths to keep crew members compliant with command.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 2.0 *Kelvin Timeline* (2010)
Box text: In its maiden voyage in 2009’s Star Trek, the U.S.S. Enterprise responds to a distress call from the planet Vulcan.  Arriving to find the rest of the rescue fleet destroyed by Romulans, the Enterprise tries unsuccessfully to save the planet.  With Captain Christopher Pike held prisoner by the enemy and First Officer Spock emotionally compromised, the crew soon find themselves under the command of the brash young James T. Kirk,  The warp-speed action that follows is a baptism by fire for the Enterprise’s fledgling crew and an exciting Star Trek introduction to a new generation of fans.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Refit* (2019)
Box text: Carrying its crew on all-new voyages, the refit version of the U.S.S. Enterprise launched to face the cosmic entity known as V’Ger. Boasting updates to its warp nacelles and overall design, this Enterprise was introduced in 1979’s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-A (2005)
Box text: Under the command of Captain James T. Kirk the starship U.S.S. ENTERPRISE NCC-1701-A was pressed into service to replace its namesake that was destroyed on a previous mission.  Nearly identical to its predecessor, the ENTERPRISE-A was prematurely launched to intervene in a hostage situation on planet NIMBUS III, forcing the crew to complete vital systems while en route.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C (2015)
Box text: The fourth Starfleet vessel to bear the name U.S.S. Enterprise, the NCC-1701-C played a crucial role in establishing peace between the United Federation of Planets and the rival Klingon Empire. In the classic Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise” (1990), this Ambassador-class starship entered a temporal rift, providing a view of an alternate reality that transformed Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew into bitter and weary warriors in a decades-long conflict between the two space-traveling powers.

Lynn Norton: “I had this ship on my short list for years. The ornament has got a kick-ass lighting effect. I know there was some conversation among fans as to our releasing it with a pristine look rather than having some battle damage as depicted in the (TNG) episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise.” My vote was to make it pristine. While I’m thrilled that Star Trek fans like our products, we have to keep the Hallmark shopper in mind as our primary consumer. When you put something in the store that appears battle-damaged, to them, it looks dirty. They don’t know the backstory and in many cases they don’t care as they likely are buying these as a gift for someone who is a fan. That fan will appreciate the detail and pore over it, but at the point of purchase, the buyer needs to be attracted to it. In my mind, I like reserving the battle-damage look for reissues or as event exclusives.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C *Battle Damaged* (2017)
Promotional info: U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-C, a Keepsake Ornament inspired by the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise,” depicts the iconic starship with a battle-damage paint scheme as it appeared on screen.  This repaint of a 2015 Keepsake Ornament has a total production run of 3,325 and sales will be limited to 225 per day.


U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D (1993)

Box text: The U.S.S. Enterprise from the TV program STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, voyages to your galaxy to light up your tree.  This unique starship, with its blinking and glowing lights, will fill your holiday with Keepsake Magic!

Lynn Norton: “At the time, Paramount would send me original blueprints and photos of the filming model as it was being constructed. I had access to detail that wasn’t readily apparent on our TV sets in those days, and I was able to explore and appreciate the design. I always imagined how I wanted to be part of the teams that built those studio models. It was thrilling for me to see the materials they were sending me. What appealed to me most was the level of detail visible on the hull and nacelles. The original was very simplistic in nature, and I had no problem with that. On the D, everything was busy. The Aztec patterns on the hull caused us some concern. What people are imagining on these end products is an extension of what happens in real life. Much of the hull plating is prefabricated and painted at the factory and there are little bits of variation in the paint lots, so there is a small difference in tone for each plate. Also, as plates go over curves, reflectivity changes. It happens on metal aircraft, so we’re familiar with seeing it. Even if you have no paint, the fact that metal when formed will change its lighting characteristics just slightly enough that it ends up with a patchwork look. But on an ornament, capturing that look can add literally hundreds of decoration steps, whether spray masks or pad printing or however you choose to do it. We chose not to.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D *Ships of Star Trek Minis* (1995)
This set of three miniature Hallmark ornaments feature smaller versions of previoulsy released Hallmark keepsake ornaments – The Starship Enterprise from the original tv series, U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D, and the Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek: The Next Generation. These miniature ornaments can hang independently, or be hung from the 2001 Space Station Deep Space Nine Hallmark ornament. When combined with the 2001 Starfleet Legends, you can create your own miniature Star Trek fleet.


U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D (2012)

Box text: For twenty-five years, science fiction fans have enjoyed watching the 24th century adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. This anniversary-edition Keepsake Ornament comes complete with a display base, so you can relive the excitement felt at hearing the opening music year after year. Attach ship to base and press button to hear Captain Picard’s monologue and music from the opening credits of STAR TREK: The Next Generation.

Lynn Norton: “Since I previously made adjustments to my original 1993 sculpture for the 2007 issue, I utilized the revised sculpture from 2007 as a basis for the 2012 anniversary edition. I removed all of the additions and restored the D to its original configuration. We decided to place the ornament on a display base so it could have sound in addition to lights. With that in mind, the control circuitry, batteries and speaker would all be housed in a base that is permanently attached, unlike the detachable bases on previous ornaments.”

Future U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D *Refit* (2007)
Box text: A famous version of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D appears in a space-time paradox where three separate time periods have collided.  Commanded by Admiral William T. Riker, the refitted Enterprise and officers are reunited with the former captain, Jean-Luc Picard.  Mankind’s existence is in the balance as the ships and crew from different eras join to battle the enemies of the Federation and the forces that caused their convergence.  Press the button on the bottom of the ornament to see the ship’s deflector dish and engines illuminate.

Lynn Norton: “The triple-nacelle ornament from (the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode) ‘All Good Things…’ was based on my original sculpture from 1993. Hallmark allows artists to retain original artwork for our portfolios, although the sculptures are often badly damaged from the process of molding and prototyping. The licensor supplied me with a number of photographs of the filming model as it was being refitted with additional components. In addition to adding the third nacelle and battle-bridge modifications, I made numerous proportional adjustments and refinements to the sculpture. I knew the 2007 ornament would be battery powered and wouldn’t have to pass the rigorous UL tests for tapping electricity from a light string. I still had to make provisions for LED placements, wire paths and battery installation, which included an access door on the underside of the saucer.”


U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E (1998)

Box text: A unique ornament – featuring the U.S.S. Enterprise-E NCC-1701-E from Star Trek: First Contact.  Under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the crew of the 24th-century Starship Enterprise is traveling back in time to the 21st century.  There, they’ll confront the biggest threat to the Star Trek universe – the Borg, whose actions would alter history and turn Earth into a Borg colony.  The U.S.S. Enterprise seen in the movie is the sixth starship in the history of the Federation to carry the proud name EnterpriseThe front deflector shield as well as both warp engines and the impulse engines are lighted.

Lynn Norton: “I adore the E. They did things to it to make it look more aerodynamic than it needed to be, but those choices gave it more style—a more swept-back, speedy appearance like a modern race car. There were a lot of products out there being developed right along side the model during (Star Trek: First Contact’s) production. I was getting the same photos from the studio as everyone else was, and originally the E had a blue-glowing deflector array. We went to see the movie and there’s that whole scene set on the deflector array and they’re out there walking around on it—and it’s amber! I was like ‘What the?’ But we were able to make that change while the ornament was in development at the toolmaker. Because it didn’t go to stores right away, our ornament was one of the few screen-accurate products on the market at the time.”

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E *Starfleet Legends Minis* (2001)
Box text: Featuring: 3 legendary miniature star trek ships (Enterprise E, Voyager, and Defiant) that connect with the 2001 Deep Space 9 Space Station Hallmark Ornament (not included)

And now to those ships that have been missed…

U.S.S. Enterprise XCV 330
Registry: USS Enterprise (XCV 330)
Class: Declaration
Service: circa 2130s
Captain: Unknown

This USS Enterprise (XCV 330) appears in Star Trek: The Motion Picture(1979) among a series of illustrations depicting ships named Enterprise. It also appears as a model in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), together with models of the Wright Flyer, a V-2 rocket, a Bell X-1, a Vostok-3KA capsule, a Space Shuttle orbiter, and some Star Trek universe starships. The 1979 Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology describes this “first interstellar liner” as a Declaration-class ship launched in 2123. Its length is given as 300 metres (980 ft), and it has a capacity of 100 crew and 850 passengers. The Star Trek Maps by New Eye Photography Editors, also published in 1979, listed this ship as a fusion drive probe that was Earth’s first attempt to explore another star system. The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, published in 1980, describes the ship as “the very first starship U.S.S. Enterprise“.[2] A painting of this ship hangs on the wall of Earth’s 602 Club in flashbacks that appeared in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode “First Flight” (2003).

Will we ever see this in ornament form?
Never.

I.S.S. Enterprise NX-01
Registry: ISS Enterprise (NX-01)
Class: NX
Service: 2150s
Captains: Maximilian Forrest (Vaughn Armstrong), Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula)
The Star Trek: Enterprise episode “In a Mirror, Darkly” features a Mirror Universe version of NX-01 Enterprise. This ship is equipped with a cloaking device, deflector shields, a tractor beam, a prototype agony booth, and different exterior markings. It is commanded by Captain Maximilian Forrest, although for a brief time his first officer, Commander Jonathan Archer, takes command following a mutiny. This Enterprise is destroyed by the Tholians.

Will we ever see this in ornament form?
We have only seen the U.S.S. NX-01 in metal form so getting any version of the I.S.S. NX-01 is very remote.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 *Discovery*
B7754FE5-4BAF-483B-A7F4-A3FC67E82B5E
Registry:
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701)
Class: ‘Constitution
Captains: Christopher Pike
Enterprise first appears at the end of Star Trek: Discovery’s first season and throughout the second season (2256).

Will we ever see this in ornament form?
Very likely and hopefully with a Pike spinoff series it will be sooner rather than later.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-A *Kelvin Timeline*

Registry: USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A)
Class: ‘Constitution
Service: 2263–ongoing
Captains: James T. Kirk (Chris Pine)
Enterprise-A first appears at the end of Star Trek Beyond after the destruction of the original Enterprise when the crew resume their five-year mission.

Will we ever see this in ornament form?
It seems like this could be a good excuse to trot out another Enterprise and the general public wouldn’t look close enough to realize where along the Star Trek canon it was representing. If the movies dip back into the Kelvin universe this would be a sure bet.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B
Registry: USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-B)
Class: Excelsior-class refit
Service: 2293–2329 (36 years)
Captains: John Harriman (Alan Ruck)
The Enterprise-B was launched at the beginning of the film Star Trek Generations (1994). During the ship’s maiden voyage, the crew encountered an energy ribbon known as the Nexus, where James T. Kirk was officially declared missing and presumed dead. The design of the Enterprise-B is nearly identical to that of the USS Excelsior, which first appeared in the 1984 film Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. Differences between the Enterprise and the Excelsior include: flarings on the outside of the secondary hull, additional and larger impulse engines, and slight differences in the nacelles and bridge modules. Non-canon information concerning the Enterprise-B includes several licensed Star Trek novels in which Demora Sulu (Jacqueline Kim) followed Harriman as captain, as well as licensed guides such as the Haynes Enterprise Manual, in which a list of the ship’s captains includes Demora Sulu, William George, and Thomas Johnson Jr.

Will we ever see this in ornament form?
We should have already seen it! C’mon Hallmark!

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-J
Registry: USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-J)
Class: Universe
Service: 26th century
Captain(s): Dax
The “Azati Prime” episode of involves time travel and features a scene in which Enterprise-J appears. Enterprise-J operates in a possible timeline during the 26th century. In this timeline, Enterprise-J participated in the Battle of Procyon V, a climactic battle in which the Federation successfully drove the invasive trans-dimensional beings known as the Sphere Builders back into their own realm. The ship’s crew included a descendant of the Xindi scientist Degra.

Will we ever see this in ornament form?
Slight, slight, slight chance. Who am I kidding? No.
