Today Hallmark unveiled their 2018 Dream Book online, revealing details on their four planned Star Trek ornaments. In addition, they also have a Star Trek con exclusive planned. This is the most Star Trek offerings from Hallmark in years. We have photos and demonstration videos of the 2018 Star Trek line from Hallmark to help you plan your holidays early.
Star Trek: Discovery U.S.S. Discovery Ornament With Light

TOS Tricorder Ornament With Light and Sound
Hallmark is continuing their TOS prop ornaments with the Star Trek Tricorder, to compliment the TOS Communicator ornament they released in 2008 and Phaser ornament from 2009. This plastic ‘Magic’ ornament measures measures 2.29″ W x 3.5″ H x 1.77″ D. It is priced at $19.99 and will be available on July 14, 2018.

TOS “The Naked Time” Ornament With Sound
Hallmark also continues their tradition in recent years of classic Star Trek scene ornaments with one from the TOS episode “The Naked Time,” featuring Captain Kirk and Sulu with his rapier.

Convention Exclusive: Lieutenant Arex and Lieutenant M’Ress Ornament Set
Hallmark has a fifth offering for 2018 which isn’t being shown in the online Dream Book released today, but can be seen in the physical Dream Books being sent to members of the Keepsake Ornaments Club. In a Hallmark first, they are doing a set of two ornaments from the animated Star Trek series. The pair of Arex and M’Ress will retail for $40.00 with a limited run of 2,800 ornaments sold to members of the Keepsake Ornaments Club, and at three events this year: San Diego Comic-Con (July 19-22), Star Trek Las Vegas (August 1-5) and New York Comic Con (October 4-7). Hallmark has provided TrekMovie with an image of their 2018 Star Trek con exclusive TAS pair (below).
Look for TrekMovie reviews of these ornaments later in the year. Keep up with all the Star Trek merchandise news and reviews at TrekMovie.com.
$50.00 just to join the Hallmark Ornaments Club, so I guess I’ll be passing on the Animated set. Too bad…
Yikes. What do you get for that $50, just the opportunity to spend more money? That sounds like quite a racket they are running.
The Animated ornaments look very cool. It would be great if Discovery could bring in live-action Arex and M’ress. With CGI where it is, seems feasible that a believable Arex could be done on television.
I’ve never joined, but you get like 3-4 free ornaments and they have events and stuff. It’s kinda like a club for ornament enthusiasts.
ST Phase II had an Arex cameo at 7:09 :https://vimeo.com/100628608
You don’t need to be in the club to get any of these ornaments. That part was getting the Dreambook (they’re free catalog or all ornaments) automatically mailed to you. You can also pick that catalog up for free at Hallmark stores.
The Animated set is available at the three conventions.
And for club members online after each con.
I love Arex and all but I’ve always hated the way his arms were positioned. The coming coming out the center of his chest thing….yeah….
Hmm, I hope the Discovery doesn’t give a fungal infection to my tree!
You have flagged a reasonable concern. What happens if your Christmas tree gets zapped to the Mirror Universe and replaced with its homicidal duplicate? That is not the recipe for a Merry Christmas.
It’s the Doctor Who Christmas Special after the 9th Doctor regenerated to the 10th Doctor all over again. Those killer, spinning Christmas trees!
Oh I am SO getting that USS Enterprise ornament.
The inevitable response to the “Naked Time” ornament?
There. I’ve done it for the rest of you.
I’m sorry the Discovery still looks ugly and weird to me.
It’s just a spaceship… with chopsticks.
So… chopsticks and a pizza slicer. East meets west.
It IS a pizza cutter. Oh, man.
I actually love the look, Tiger2, since it implies a certain retro quality. A ship that looks built more conservatively and sturdy than other later, more advanced Trek ships built through trial and error. The problem, of course, is that this aspect of the ship doesn’t really fit the timeline or narrative around it at present.
I’m sure I’ll end up buying both ships. . . And maybe think about putting them on the tree too.
Technically not convention EXCLUSIVES. Or does the meaning of the word loose something along the way,lol! When you don’t even have to go to the con to get them and can just sit at home and order all the socalled exclusives,it looses the right to be called con EXCLUSIVE,since they’re NOT exclusive to the con. Event item is as far as I’ll go. And I said the same thing on a different site. lol. Considering picking them up while at Comic-Con,and NYCC in October,but I doubt I will.
Definitely going to get that Enterprise. Nice. My wife will probably get me Discovery, which is fine. She gets me a Trek ornament every year.
My literally first second reaction when seeing the full image of all of these at the top of this article was: “Please don’t let the Animated Series figures be convention exclusives, please don’t let the Animated Series figures be convention exclusives, please don’t let the Animated Series figures be convention exclusives.”
Then I scrolled down to the last full paragraph.
Four words: Stop doing this, Hallmark.
I didn’t hear Uhura say, “Sorry, neither” when Sulu said, “I’ll protect you, fair maiden!”
