The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 is one of the most recognizable spaceships in history. Even the few people who aren’t fans know that the ship is from Star Trek. This year, for the 50th anniversary of the show this famous ship has been reproduced by Hallmark as a Limited Edition Keepsake Ornament. Hallmark has reproduced the U.S.S. Enterprise as it was seen in the pilot episode, “The Cage.”
This beautiful reproduction is highly detailed and exclusive to only in 3 locations, San Diego Comic Con, New York Comic Con and Star Trek: New York. This exclusive edition is painted to look as the Enterprise did when it first graced television screens in 1966. I have never been disappointed by any of the Keepsake ornaments that Hallmark has produced and this one is another example of their greatness. The level of detail on this small ship is above and beyond, including the extra detail to the domes on the nacelles. (You can see the detail in the photos). Hallmark has been producing Star Trek Keepsake Ornaments since 1991 (25 years!) and this year’s ornament is proof that they just keep getting better.
This very lightweight U.S.S. Enterprise is approximately 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. Sculpted by Lynn Norton; this marks Norton’s 27th Star Trek ornament. It is fitting that the first Star Trek ornament he sculpted was also the Enterprise in 1991. Like other ornaments from last few years, this ornament does not have to be plugged into a string of lights; it is powered by 3 batteries (included). This “magic” ornament recites the opening monologue by William Shatner from the Original Series and it plays part of the theme music.
The Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise The pilot version retails for $30.00 USD and is will be available at San Diego Comic Con, Star Trek Mission New York and New York City Comic Con. This gives you 3 chances to pick one up. The U.S.S. Enterprise Pilot version will look great on your tree this holiday season or hung at your desk for year round enjoyment.
