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.
The destruction of the Kelvin provided the emotionally stirring opening scenes of 2009’s Star Trek, introducing a new generation of fans to Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. Press the button to see the starship light up.
