Box Text: “Hailing frequencies are open.” From the command deck of the Starship Enterprise, Lieutenant Uhura breaks the silence of deep space. As communications officer, she transmits messages in all the languages of the known galaxy. Hers is often the first human voice to be heard by alien races in unexplored star systems. Both Uhura’s name and her spirit reflect the Swahili word for “freedom.”
Usually seen in “engineering and security” red. Lieutenant Uhura wore this striking “command” gold uniform in only one original episode, “The Carbonite Maneuver” (1966).
This special event edition repaint of the 2007 Lietenant Uhura limited quantity ornament was created for exclusive distribution at major collector events and conventions.
Box Text: “Set phasers to stun.” Considering the alternatives, enemies of the Federation are lucky to hear this command from a Starfleet officer. With additional settings that include overload, disintegrate, and kill, the phaser is the versatile – and powerful – standard issue weapon carried by Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in the original STAR TREK television series. Since then, versions of the phenomenally cool phaser have appeared in almost every STAR TREK incarnation. Now, with this ornament, STAR TREK fans can spend the holidays with phasers set on “fun”!
Logic or loyalty? Spock remains true to both in The Menagerie, a Star Trek original series two-parter from 1966. Written by series creator Gene Rodenberry, the award-winning episode incorporates pre-Kirk footage from an unaired installment that was originally set to be the pilot episode. Spock and Kirk find themselves at Starbase 11, where they meet Spock’s previous captain, Christopher Pike. Now burned and paralyzed from an accident, Pike can no longer walk or talk. Communicating with flashing lights controlled by his brainwaves, he can only answer yes or no, and Spock in the only one who can help him! His predicament and the mutinous lengths to which Spock will go for his former captain and friend lead to one of the series’ most well-known adventures.
Press the button on the ornament to hear Spock and Captain Kirk speak and see Captain Pike’s light flash.
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 Cruiserâs lights illuminate.
