With Star Trek: Discovery finally arriving today, this week has seen some exciting new merch hit the streets, with others on the way. The new Eaglemoss model for the U.S.S. Discovery will be warping to online retailers soon, the Hallmark ornament of the U.S.S. Discovery has been announced and new wearable Discovery pins are now available for purchase.
Eaglemoss U.S.S. Discovery
Ben Robinson, who runs the Eaglemoss license for Star Trek, recently tweeted that the model for the U.S.S. Discovery would be available for purchase soon.

Robinson didn’t specify when the U.S.S. Discovery would be available for order. However, with the Discovery premiere literally around the solar system, “soon” could be days. Robinson did confirm months ago that the U.S.S. Shenzhou was also on the way. He also tweeted that there are more new Federation and Klingon ships in the first two episodes of Discovery than the entirety of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Which means we can expect far more Eaglemoss ships from Discovery over the coming months.
After Trek host Matt Mira also tweeted the picture below from the set of the show to TrekMovie.Com. It is presumably a better look at the Eaglemoss Discovery.

First look at the Hallmark Discovery Ornament
Hallmark is also revealing more with a new video featuring a look at their planned ornament for the U.S.S. Discovery. The show’s hosts, Christine and Kevin (who fans also know as a regular Star Trek author Kevin Dilmore), revealed the ship will debut as part of Hallmark’s Keepsake Ornaments line next year.
No word yet on an exact price or street date, but Christine and Kevin did say “next year”, which probably means you can find the Discovery ornament available in stores and online Christmas 2018. The video includes a lot of good angles on the Discovery, such as the one below.
Pin Your Excitement for Discovery
N0w you can join the Federation with new lapel pins thanks to Quantum Mechanix. These new Discovery pins are made out of a zinc alloy and can be attached to your shirt with a pin from behind. These are smaller than the previously released full-sized replicas (available at Entertainment Earth for $14.95), but they still have a sleek, gold-colored finish. Quantum is currently selling the gold-colored command pin for $4.95.
Fan Sets are also extending their line of Star Trek: Discovery pins. For $5.95, you can buy officially licensed collector’s pins of First Officer Michael Burnham, Sarek and the Klingon Voq. There are in addition to the previously released pins for T’Kuvma, Saru, Captain Georgiou and the U.S.S. Shenzhou. To purchase, just visit FanSets’ homepage. You can find other pins featuring your favorite Star Trek characters from each TV show and film.
