Hallmark has been producing Star Trek Keepsake Ornaments since 1991 when they released the original U.S.S. Enterprise from the television series. At the time, in order to get the lights to work you needed to plug your ornament into your light string. Nowadays the Keepsake ornaments take watch batteries. I prefer the batteries; if you don’t need an outside power source, your ships can be on display year-round.
This year’s Star Trek Keepsake Ornament is the U.S.S. Enterprise from the Second Season episode, “Who Mourns for Adonis”. In this episode, as the Enterprise approaches the M-Class planet, Pollux IV, a giant, green, glowing hand rises from the planet’s surface. The Enterprise’s attempts to flee prove unsuccessful and they find themselves in the grasp of some alien power. Kirk and company are then contacted by the “owner” of the hand who claims to be the Greek God, Apollo.
