Nerd Porn – New Hallmark Star Trek Ornaments

This year’s set of Star Trek Hallmark ornaments hit stores earlier this month, spanning decades of Trek history to capture iconic moments  throughout the series.

Fans of J.J. Abram’s 2009 film can snag an ornament depicting the meeting between Leonard Nimoy’s Old Spock and Zachary Quinto’s New Spock.  The ornament features the two Spocks sharing a Vulcan salute, complete with dialog from the film that plays with the touch of a button.  Star Trek trivia note:  StarTrek.com reported that this year’s ornament means Spock now edges out Captain Kirk as the Star Trek character with the most appearances as a Hallmark ornament.

For Trekkies (or Trekkers, if that’s your preferred nomenclature) of a more classic bent, Hallmark also is offering an ornament depicting DeForest Kelly’s Dr. McCoy, clad in his long-sleeved TOS uniform and holding a hypospray.

Rounding out this year’s offering is Hallmark’s second rendition of the Enterprise-D to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Star Trek:  The Next Generation.  This year’s version of the TNG Enterprise comes with a battery-powered stand that plays Captain Picard’s opening narration and music from the show’s theme song.

All three ornaments are available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores.

As a collector of Hallmark’s Star Trek ornaments since 1992, I’m most excited for the new version of the Enterprise-D.  Although I already own Hallmark’s original rendition of the old girl, the battery-operated stand means I can display the ship proudly on my desk throughout the year in addition to hanging it on my Christmas tree in December.

Finally, StarTrek.com reported that  Hallmark showed off some of next year’s ornaments during SDCC.  Among the sneak peaks was a classic version of Scottie from TOS, a scene from the episode “Arena” depicting Kirk battling the Gorn captain, and a model of the U.S.S. Kelvin from the 2009 film.
