75) 2015 U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C

image.jpeg


image

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.

Artist: Lynn Norton

Original Price: $32.95

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.” – See more at: http://www.startrek.com/article/hallmark-sculptor-lynn-norton-on-the-storied-history-of-trek-keepsake-ornaments?ecid=PCID-2617611&pa=affcj#sthash.TWFFh3oy.dpuf

68) 2013 U.S.S. Kelvin Battle-Scarred Variant (Special Event Edition – NYCC, Qty 1575)

image

This 2013 EVENT Hallmark ornament was made from the same mold as the U.S.S. Kelvin ornament that was offered in Hallmark Gold Crown stores during the 2013 ornament season. This 2013 Comic-Con exclusive U.S.S. Kelvin features a heavily battle damaged U.S.S. Kelvin – just like during the battle with Nero and the Romulans that were from the future in the J.J. Abrams feature film, Star Trek. This is the ship that George Kirk, father of James T. Kirk, sacrificed so that his wife and newly born son could escape from a hopeless battle.

This ornament was originally available for purchase in limited quantities exclusively at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con International (July 18-21, 2013) and New York Comic Con (October 10-13) events. During each Comic-Con, sales were limited to 175 per day, with a grand total production of 1,575.

60) 2011 Romulan Bird of Prey

2011

Lynn Norton

A space vessel boasting 23rd-century technology as stealthy and cunning as the aliens aboard it, the Romulan Bird-of-Prey is one of the most intimidating ships ever to face the U.S.S. Enterprise under the command of Captain James T. Kirk.  Although its distinctive features are powerful energy plasma torpedoes, a cloaking device rendering it all be undetectable by Romulan enemies, and a hull decorated with a colorful bird from which the ship gets its name.

 Press the button on the ornament to see the Romulan Bird-of-Prey’s lights illuminate.

Original Retail:  $32.95

Artist:  Lynn Norton

Novelty:  Battery light

Bot 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.

Serial #:  QXI2156

Lynn Norton…“I was happy with that design and the way it turned out. My original sculpture is smaller than the actual ornament. As we anticipated the circuitry and the size of the battery pack, when they started building the molds they realized that the secondary hull wouldn’t be big enough to house the batteries. I must give my art director credit for this, as rather than fattening the hull to fit the batteries, he instructed them to upsize the entire ship so it would maintain more accurate dimensions.”

50) 2009 Klingon Battle Cruiser

 image

Klingons are the most ruthless and feared enemies of Starfleet, and the presence of these menacing warriors in space is made all the more fearsome by the ominous appearance of their battle cruisers. Expressly designed for war, the ships are equipped with powerful weaponry and defense systems including disruptors, photon torpedoes, and cloaking devices. Like a dangerous predator slyly lurking in the cold reaches of space, a Klingon battle cruiser is usually NOT a welcome sight for the crews of other Federation starships.

Press the button on the ornament to see the Klingon Battle Cruiser’s lights illuminate.

QXI4347

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.” – See more at: http://www.startrek.com/article/hallmark-sculptor-lynn-norton-on-the-storied-history-of-trek-keepsake-ornaments?ecid=PCID-2617611&pa=affcj#sthash.eHmdJ3hi.dpuf

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.

Lynn Norton…

“I loved the very dramatic unveiling of that ship in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I’ll never forget the awe I felt from seeing it on the big screen. That was the first time we ever had seen it like that, and it was detailed out for us to see in all its glory. Fans wanted it, too. There was a campaign petitioning Hallmark for several years requesting it. ‘You need to do that ship!’

“Originally, our ornament of the A was planned as our last starship with a cord for power, but the design had to be shifted to battery operation or it wasn’t going to pass UL (Underwriters Laboratories) specifications. That’s why my sculpt has those awful tree-trunk pylons to support the nacelles; they had to be big enough to house the wiring to satisfy UL. Since then, every ship has been battery-operated.” – See more at: http://www.startrek.com/article/hallmark-sculptor-lynn-norton-on-the-storied-history-of-trek-keepsake-ornaments?ecid=PCID-2617611&pa=affcj#sthash.p8SQtUuo.dpuf
