Fictional starship display model, U.S.S. BELLWETHER, NX-90866, INGRESS CLASS science vessel with experimental METAWARP propulsion by Lynn A. Norton.

Lynn A. Norton is an artist who, since 1991, has sculpted nearly all of the Star Trek starship ornaments that have been produced by Hallmark for their beloved and bestselling Keepsake Ornaments line. Norton sculpts and prototypes original patterns for ornaments and toys from his personal home studio. His process remains the same as always. He starts by making detailed drawings and then employs engraving tools to hand-carve the ornaments from synthetic wood. Though Norton technically retired back in 2006, he continues to sculpt Hallmark’s Star Trek Keepsake Ornaments. As he told author John Peterson for the book Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments: The Inside Stories from the Artists Who Create Them, “I’d like nothing better than to sculpt starship ornaments until my fingers fall off.” He lives in Leawood, Kansas.

Picard: “Let’s see what’s out there. Engage.”

Picard: “Data, find a way to defeat that shield.”
Data: “That may be impossible, sir.”
Picard: “Things are only impossible until they are not.”
Data: “Yes, sir.”

Data: “Captain, I am seeking advice in how to…”
Picard: “And I will be delighted to offer any advice I can on understanding women.  When I have some I’ll let you know.”

Picard: “Do we have clearance?”
Data: “Aye, sir. Standard parking orbit.”
Picard: “Make it so.”

Picard: “Data, I want this to be an away team of one…you.  I don’t think there is a reason to risk anyone else.”

Picard: “Indispensable is the appropriate word.”

Data: “Captain, there is no rational justification for this course.”
