If you are a Trekkie, or you have someone on your Christmas list who is, now is an excellent time to add to your collection. The line was first released in 1991 and has been going strong ever since. The first ornament for sale was the Starship Enterprise. In 2010, due to the popularity of the Star Trek line, Hallmark started the “Star Trek Legends,” which began with Captain James T. Kirk as the headliner 1st in the series.
Those Trekkie fans who can’t get enough have been waiting with baited breath to find out what the new releases for 2018 will be. The word is finally out, the 2018 collection will add six more ornaments to the mix. This year, Hallmark has even added one from the Star Trek animated series.
Star Trek Hallmark Ornaments Released in July 2018
In July of this year, Hallmark released the scene from “The Name Time” where Sulu is fencing, while Captain Kirk ducks atop the Enterprise bridge. The ornament is a “magic” one and has an audio chip that plays the dialogue from the movie that makes it even more spectacular. Also, in July, the Starfleet tricorder was revealed from the Original Series. It too is a magic ornament that lights up with and plays the original Trek dialogue. The third release in July was the Crossfield-class DSS Discovery, announced and anticipated since September 2017. Lastly, the Constitution-class USS Enterprise was a throwback from the original Hallmark ornament first released in 1991. It is the seventh TOS-Era Enterprise Hallmark ornament.
