Hallmark’s Christmas For 2011

Hallmark continues their tradition of making Star Trek Christmas decorations with three new Trek-themed Keepsake Ornaments for 2011. Just like this year, there is a "Legends" character, a scene w/ sound clip, and a ship with lights. The three offerings are:

Mr. Spock (second in the "Legends" series).

"Mirror, Mirror” scene with dialog clip.

Romulan Bird of Prey with lights.

The three 2011 Star Trek Keepsake Ornaments will be available in July 2011 (prices are TBA). All three can be seen at the Hallmark Booth (#2913).

Comments

1. Kertrats - July 22, 2010

Very cool… I always get the Hallmark ornaments, but this year I’ll be living in Seoul, South Korea. I wonder how easily I’ll be able to purchase them…

2. Nanook177 - July 22, 2010

Growl. I like the Bird of Prey, but, dang it, I want an Excelsior/Enterprise-B and an Enterprise-C to have ALL the Enterprises orbiting my Christmas tree! :)

3. Lt. Dakin - July 22, 2010

New Enterprise!!!

4. The First Son of Krypton - July 22, 2010

The bird of prey is white????

THIS IS A DISASTER!

5. scifib5st - July 22, 2010

I concure with No.2′s comment. I hope to see the Enterprise C soon. And lets look at just using the light string plug in, or a A/C plug in. You can buy these transformers at Michales for the village homes that have 4 or 5 D/C plugs from one A/C transformer.

6. Jorg Sacul - July 22, 2010

I have the Enterprise-JJ, and will get the rest as the summer goes along. The Amok Time one with the iconic fight music… awesome!

Hallmark– here’s an idea for a tree topper. Spacedock over Earth from ST-III. make it lit, plug-in, and about 8″ tall.

7. Bryan - July 22, 2010

I only really am a big fan of the Federation ships, so next year I probably wont buy the bird of prey… but I picked up the Enterprise Last weekend, Love it…

I wish it went with all my Prime ships though that used to plug directly into the mini lights then it would always have some lights on like the Enterprise E, Runabout, Galileo Shuttle Enterprise D, etc. etc.

oh well, a benefit of not needing christmas lights is that the ship can be out all the time (like I do with my NX-01) – just wish there was a stand for that occasion.

8. Kobayashi Maru - July 22, 2010

The Enterprise -A ornamnet is by far the most superior ship ornament they’ve made thus far… i’m in agreeance that i wish the excelsior and the enterprise -B/C would make an appearance..

and what’s up with the kick/spock figures, they dont have any likeness to shatner or nimoy, i’m assuming that’s a licensing issue?

9. Mike - July 22, 2010

2011 will be the first year that none of the Trek ornaments really excite me, but I guess I will still end up wanting the Bird of Prey for my Yuletide armada. :-)

10. Bob - July 22, 2010

Agree with #9 (Mike)

This year they offer the new Enterprise, so I was assuming that next year they would offer the USS Kelvin. But nope. They choose a ship from the OS.

As others have pointed out there are many other ships they could offer.

The Mirror, Mirror ornament is just dull. There are so many other more exciting “scenes” they could have used. But we get a mind-meld scene.

I read this on another board and I think it’s a good idea.
Each year offer an open bridge ornament based on iconic ships from each series/movie with sound effects/dialogue.
Such as:
Enterprises Original thru E
Defiant
DS9
Voyager
NX-01 Enterprise
2009 Enterprise
Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek IV

11. Rich G - July 22, 2010

Boy, the original Kirk (in Captain’s chair) and Spock (at science console) were much more accurate than these two. Glad I picked them up and I wish they’d continued the crew in that style after McCoy (in Transporter).

12. rm10019 - July 22, 2010

Yeah, I’ll chime in and agree that I’m not too impressed. The ships are always great but do we need more character ornaments, really?

The Kelvin would have been a no brainer and I’d rather have multiple ships than the characters. The ‘scene’ collection is great, but the mind meld is not very dynamic, esp since it happens up against a dull flat (wall)

13. Scott B. here. - July 22, 2010

Finally! A classic Romulan BOP! Awesome.

The rest? Feh.

Gimme a Gorn and a classic D7.

Scott B. out.

14. weyoun_9 - July 22, 2010

So…everyone’s just DONE with 24th Cent. Trek merchandise?

Lame.

15. ety3 - July 22, 2010

#14 –

Yes.

23rd’s where it’s at.

16. Michael - July 22, 2010

WTH? The Romulan nacelles are blue????????????????? Major mistake. How could they have goofed this so bad? Otherwise cool!

17. Anthony Thompson - July 22, 2010

Those uniform patches look a bit out of scale (too large), esp. on the Spock ‘legends’ piece.

18. Montreal_Paul - July 22, 2010

Hey, picky fanboys… who cares if they are not 100% true scale replicas with original paint and read white and blue nacelles and the windows are 1/1000 of a hair off. THEY ARE CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENTS!!! Get a life!

19. Orb of the Emissary - July 22, 2010

Love the Romulan B.o.P ornament! Can’t wait! But is it from the original aired version or the remastered version?? :-P

20. Oh No, Odo - July 22, 2010

I’m with you #14

I want more TNG and DS9 ornaments. The last 3 years have just been TOS. Worse yet is their repeating characters they already made. Two Spocks and Kirks but not one Scotty?

And don’t get me started on DS9. Only two character ornaments from previous years(Sisko and Worf), less than any other Trek show.

I give up. I’m not collecting these until some variety returns to the line. Farewell Hallmark!

21. Hat Rick - July 22, 2010

The ornaments are surely a pleasure to have and to hold.

22. Praetor Shinzon II - July 22, 2010

There are no Romulan Birds of Prey; there are Romulan Warbirds. There are no Klingon Warbirds; There are Klingon Birds of Prey. How difficult is it to keep this straight? Over and over this occurs. It like all the idiots who call Khan, Kahn. Two completely different names and different origins of the names. Is there intelligent life on planet Earth? Beginning to wonder.

23. DC - July 22, 2010

@22 I think you better go back and watch Balance of Terror again. The term Bird of Prey is used.

24. Lore - July 22, 2010

I think most of us would pony up the cash for a set of starship ornaments.

25. CJS - July 22, 2010

@22 In TOS the Romulan Ships were called Bird of Prey and @4 they were essentially white (or off-white).

Nothing says Christmas like a forced mind-meld or a fight to the death!

26. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

Hallmark is sticking to 23rd century characters and ships because that is what the majority of fans want. So I wouldn’t expect anything from TNG or the other spinoffs anytime soon. They’ll just keep putting out TOS keepsakes until people have had enough.

27. Anthony Thompson - July 22, 2010

22.

Why is it that overbearing know-it-alls are so frequently shown up? I’m asking because you probably have more experience than most. : )

28. THX-1138 - July 22, 2010

Erff… those character ornaments don’t look too good. The Rommie “ship” might be a decent addition.

I have an artist friend who is also a ship fan and she has a great vaulted ceiling in her house where she put’s up a 19 foot tree. She has wired the various Hallmark ships (about a dozen or so?) and displays them flying around the tree and room lit up and either fighting each other or rescuing one another. I have an 18 foot ceiling but alas only go with a 10 foot tree. Might have to get the Rommie ship and do the whole “Balance of Tree-error” thing.

29. Lt. Bailey - July 22, 2010

Indeed, in the episode BALANCE OF TERROR. The navigator, Lt Stiles makes a remark that the ship are painted like a giant bird of prey. So thus they can be referred to as BoPs or Warbirds. And I seem to recall some commentary by Mike & Denise Okuda that in ST III, the “bad guys” were to be Romulans and the script called the ship a “Bird of Prey”. But they were changed to Klingons at one point so the name of the ship stayed as BoP even though it refers to Romulan ships.

Chalk it up to that period of time when the Romulans and Klingons shared information as in ENTERPRISE INCEDENT. I refer to the TOS episode and not the Star Trek Slot machine game which is highly addictive.

30. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

#28

Your friend is able to have a 19 foot tall tree in her house? And your ceilings are 18 feet high? You folks live inside castles or something?

#22

I really enjoy how someone like you who thinks they are always right tries to correct other people but end up needing to be corrected themselves. You need to rewatch some of the classics, my friend. :-)

31. Holger - July 22, 2010

These are OK. Not great, but not bad.

32. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

ENT= Romulan Bird-Of-Prey
= Klingon Bird-Of-Prey

TOS= Romulan Bird-Of Prey
= Klingon Battle Cruiser

TNG, DS9,VOY, first ten movies

= Romulan Warbird, Klingon Bird-Of-Prey, Klingon Battle Cruiser,
Reman Warbird

“Star Trek”= Klingon Warbird (otherwise known as Battle Cruiser)

Hope this helps.

33. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

Oh, and “Enterprise” also featured the Klingon “Raptor”, which means ‘bird-of-prey’.

34. Kertrats - July 22, 2010

And, in “Broken Bow,” one of the Vulcans refers to “Klingon Warbirds.”

35. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

#34

Brannon Braga called that one an error, but ironically, Bob Orci made it canon by throwing that term into “Star Trek” during the Kobayashi Maru sequence.

36. THX-1138 - July 22, 2010

#30

Nope. We both built our homes. As opposed to having the upstairs and downstairs separated by the shared ceiling/floor, we decided to take part of it out. Hers looks like an atrium sort of thing (hexogonal 12 foot hole from the ground level floor to the second floor ceiling) and my great room is open from floor to ceiling with a loft that goes around about 2/3 of the interior. Living out west and owning my own ranch style house for so long, I decided that I was done with my 7 foot ceilings so I built my place. I love it but get back to me when it comes time to wash the windows or repaint the walls. Oish!

BTW, my friend is also a big Firefly fan and last year had this really cool pewter Serenity flying around with the Trek ships. Fit right in. Now she is going to get that super high end Serenity ship that’s being made. Don’t think it will be circling the tree, though.

37. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

#36

Nice. By the way, do have any of the Diamond Select/Art Asylum figures and ships?

38. Bryan - July 22, 2010

I know that we shouldn’t forget about Trek’s roots but… I agree with many of you, Give TOS a rest… Market the TOS 2.0 crew now, they’re in another movie coming out in a couple years, and Most of us grew up with TNG, DS9 & Voyager so why are we ignoring them?

39. Vultan - July 22, 2010

I just wish the Klingons and Romulans would make up their minds and settle on some proper names for their ships. I suggest they be the Klingon Thunderbird and Romulan El Dorado.

There. No confusion. Just a couple of classy names for a couple of classy spacefaring species on the go.

40. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

#39

The Klingons and the Romulans have hated each other for centuries. Its possible that one side “stole” ideas and designs from the other just to humiliate them. That could apply to spacecraft names as well as the designs and technologies. Part of an arms race between two rival powers.

41. CaptainDonovin - July 22, 2010

Whoo hoo, more ships. I’m gonna need a bigger tree!!

42. THX-1138 - July 22, 2010

#37

I have the AA/DST original E, The TMP E, The D, and the E E. And TWOK Khan all-burned-up figure. They gave that one to me for free for buying so much of their stuff. I have many multiples of all their Trek Tek stuff, too.

43. Krazy Joe - July 22, 2010

Eh.

I would have far preferred the USS Kelvin for 2011. The Romulan Bird of Prey never excited me.

44. CJS - July 22, 2010

Long ago in the before time, when the canon was TOS and a couple of movies, the Klingons had Battlecruisers and the Romulans had Birds of Prey (and the occasional Lend-Lease Klingon Battlecruiser). Then, when making Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, first the film’s bad guys changed from Romulan to Klingon and then the part of the movie where we found out that Kruge had stolen a Romulan ship was left on the cutting room floor, and so the 1st Klingon Bird of Prey was born. After that, the Bird of Prey name was considered to be associated with the Klingons, so in order to avoid confusion the TNG producers started calling Romulan ships Warbirds.

45. Desstruxion - July 22, 2010

I like the fact that they no longer have wires attached. That way I can play with them after Christmas is over, heh heh.

46. CmdrR - July 22, 2010

Nice to have these come out every Christmas. Always loved the Rommies’ ship. Clean lines, yet menacing like a manta.

47. Imrahil - July 22, 2010

The BOP looks nice, but they need to a) fix the nacelle color and b) get the feathers off the top. They should only be painted on the bottom.

I wish they plugged into the trees still though. I miss the days when I’d plug it in and the whole tree would start making noise at once.

The “Legends” figures look terrible. They really need to get a better sculptor.

Oh, and viva la 23rd century.

48. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

#44

Except the producers went with Klingon Birds Of Prey during “Enterprise”.

49. Trek Ahead - July 22, 2010

I have an ornament from every year they made them.
But this year I’m going to pass on the “New Movie Enterprise” Since I didn’t like the movie, or the new design, I won’t be getting that one.
I look forward to the Romulan Warship with the Bird of Prey emblazoned on it though!

50. Avro Arrow - July 22, 2010

Nice… I’ve always had a soft spot for the classic Romulan BoP! Looking forward to that one.

Picked up the JJprise a couple of weeks back… and it was broken in the box! First time that’s ever happened in all the years I’ve been collecting the ship ornaments. I’m guessing it had something to do with them switching from the plastic insert to just wrapping them in tissue paper this year? Fortunately, they take the ornament out of the box to show you when you buy it, so I didn’t pay for it, take it home, and find out there. Luckily, they had another one available that was in one piece.

51. Khan was Framed! - July 23, 2010

Romulan bussard collectors aren’t blue, they’re red…wtf?

52. THX-1138 - July 23, 2010

Actually, what we consider the bussard collectors on the Romulan ship were in truth sort of a yellow/white backlit half dome. I think the box art on the AMT model influenced all of us into believing the orange/red domes. And the Rommie ship had a striking resemblence to the old E’s nacelles.

53. Lynn A. Norton - July 23, 2010

Mea Culpa! I’m sorry to have caused a controversy about the color of the bussard collectors on the Romulan BOP. #52 is correct that the box art on the first AMT model kit probably influenced almost everything that has been made into models and toys from the beginning. Since I’m also a fan, I wanted the ornament to be as accurate as possible. Before starting the sculpting assignment, I questioned the red coloration seen on many previous products. The original TOS broadcast material wasn’t conclusive, so I resorted to exhaustive research from publications, drawings and online sources. Without exception they all described blue light emanating from BOP bussard collectors. The Hallmark ornament prototype on display at Comic Con has been approved for production, so I have to assume that CBS/Paramount was OK with the color choice. I guess if enough people think it’s wrong, we may have created something REALLY collectible. Thank you for your comments. I listen and learn.

54. Red Dead Ryan - July 23, 2010

#51

Maybe it can be a “J.J verse” Romulan Bird-Of-Prey?

55. Scruffy the Janitor/Vampire Slayer - July 23, 2010

22> Schinzon

History lesson: The KlingonBOP from Spock was originally a stolen Romulan ship. It even fires a plasma torpedo.

There was a scene in 3 where Kruge & co. hijack the Romulan ship. It wasn’t filmed, but it was storyboarded.

That would make The HMS Bounty twice stolen.

56. dep1701 - July 23, 2010

@47

There actually were ‘feather” markings on the rear edges of the wings and tailfin of the original filming model. There was only one brief “clear” view of them in the show, and that was on the Enterprise’s viewing screen before the Romulan Commander comes on, and subsequently self-destructs the ship.

57. DesiluTrek - July 24, 2010

No, don’t “give TOS a rest.” Ever!

58. Chuck Doran - July 24, 2010

Bryan, you wrote: – just wish there was a stand for that occasion.

I have collected all of the Hallmark Star Trek Ornaments since 1991 and I display all of the ships in a lighted display case on Hallmark’s “Every Kid’s A Star” Display Stand. The stands were made in 2005 and can be found on Ebay. Hope that helps.

Chuck

59. Bob - July 25, 2010

60. Chad - July 26, 2010

First off I’d like to thank Lynn Norton for his considerate response on the design of the 2011 Bird-of-Prey.

Secondly, I’m wondering if there’s a link anywhere to the ornaments listed in 59. Bob’s post?

61. greenappleman7 - July 27, 2010

The gigula-flux-jigglator on the klingoneese q’okd’fds is de-flunoculated by a parsec of 45.283.90 stardates hectromertz!
THIS IS A DISASTER!

62. Tom - December 5, 2010

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find the USS. Enterprise flying tree topper. I saw it yrs ago in the back of a magazine but have not been able to find it. If someone knows, please contact me to let me know. It’s The Enterprise flying around the top of the tree.

63. T'Cal - December 27, 2010

I would love a collection of ships that comes with a display similar to that in the Obs Lounge in TNG. Perhaps it could be a large plaque with a spot for each Enterprise ornament from TOS thru the E-J.

64. dannyds9 - February 7, 2011

I think the Romulan Bird of Prey looks fine. The very first ornament…1991 original Enterprise 1701 is by far the worst looking out of all of them so far but look how much is sells for on ebay… I know, I paid for one. I held out for a long time getting one because of the look but wanted a complete collection. I didn’t care much for the new movie or new Enterprise either but got it…again…to have the complete collection. As far as the plug in wires the older ornaments have…I’m glad they did away with them, makes it alot easier to display them on stands on a shelf. A K-7 would be nice…but hey, they do have alot more ships to make and just think…this did start way back in 1991…who would have ever thought they would be making them still….I hope they never stop….look forward to them every year.

65. dannyds9 - February 7, 2011

an added thought….ships from other series would be great…Battlestar: Galactica(both old and new) Buck Rogers In The 25th Century, Babylon 5, Seaqeust DSV, Space: 1999…. any other ideas?

66. Royalrjr - February 27, 2011

I’ve been waiting for an Enterprise from the Enterprise show. I think that one was only released as a pewter figure with a stand. A new sculpt of the original Enterprise and the new Romulan Warbird from Nemesis would be nice also.
