Lynn Norton…“This is the one that I really went out of my way to make as accurate as possible. I based it on the original shooting model with its larger bridge dome, larger deflector dish and nacelle features as a tribute to the series’ 50th anniversary. Assuming it’s able to maintain all of its details in final production, it’s more accurate than anything I’ve done before.
“One thing to note in the progression of all of Hallmark’s Star Trek ornaments. People will ask why ornaments are so much better looking now than in the past. Some of that is owed to advancements in technology. Some of that comes from the learning curve for me, and some is the learning curve for the manufacturer and mold makers. Twenty-five years ago when we started making the Enterprise, to that point we had been making cute, fuzzy bunnies and such. Now, we’re known for the work that we do on all designs. Because of my technical background and my background as an engraver, I was pushing the limits of what I understood the limits of the manufacturing process to be. And we keep getting better every year.” – See more at: http://www.startrek.com/article/hallmark-sculptor-lynn-norton-on-the-storied-history-of-trek-keepsake-ornaments?ecid=PCID-2617611&pa=affcj#sthash.91Bd8ESX.dpuf
The fact that you came under-supplied to meet the attendees needs (especially those fans who were actually working the Mission New York convention) is a disgrace. I have collected everyone of your Star Trek offerings since 1991 and missed this one. NOT ACCEPTABLE in any way. Please note that Hallmark ornaments are something which I buy as gifts in a very HUGE way each year. I guess you are no longer in need of my business, happy in your success apart from serving a loyal customer;s needs. NOTE THIS: I offered to pay the woman rep you had there if she could send me one later (since you still intend to sell them at NYC Comic Con) in a month. She said no. INEXCUSABLE. Please retrain her out of her sorry customer service ineptitude.
