The 2020-21 Storyteller ornaments will be available in stores in July of ‘22 along with the Mirror McCoy (predicted for July) and Mirror Scotty (predicted for October). This means by October of 2022 there will be eight Star Trek ornaments available on store shelves. With the abundance of Trek ornaments it is likely we won’t see any additional character or scene ornaments which makes our list of 2022 predictions a bit more abbreviated than years past.
2022 Character Contenders
- Mirror Mirror McCoy Likely July release.
Odds: Sure thing!
- Mirror Mirror Scotty Likely October release.
Odds: Sure thing!
- The Lower Decks characters in a stamped metal design could bring us Ensigns Mariner, Tendi, Boimler and Rutherford.
- We have had two Tribbles so far and Hallmark could still continue the series. It is a super cheap tweak to an existing ornament. Considering there are other Tribble color variations and the fact that it makes for a good generic Star Trek stocking stuffer, I‘m not sure we’ve seen the last of the hairy critters.
- Captain Christopher Pike is already a staple in the Star Trek universe and his own series is currently filming. 2022 may be too soon for an ornament, look for it in 2023.
- Captain Michael Burnham’s new rank and uniform for the upcoming season of Discovery would make a cool Keepsake.
- In this divided world we could use a Let That Be Your Last Battlefield ornament more than ever. What if Hallmark gave us a Lokai and Bele pairing as a convention release similar to the Arex and M’Ress in 2018? Or how about a Bele release with a Lokai repaint the following year?
2022 Ship Contenders
- A 30th anniversary edition of the famous Shuttlecraft Galileo ornament? That would be interesting.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B. How long will fans have to wait? Star Trek Generations celebrates a 30th anniversary in 2024 but we’d still like it sooner.
- Strange New World’s U.S.S. Enterprise seems to be a lock but not likely until 2023.
- U.S.S. Discovery went through a retrofit and was recommissioned with the registry NCC-1031-A. Will the ornament get recommissioned too?
2022 Scene Contenders
- How about a Kirk ornament shouting “Khaaaaan!” when Star Trek II celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2022. Even better, give it Magic Motion Sensors so it screams out at you when you walk by your tree.
- A scene with Picard and Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Picard would give us two classic characters AND promote the current series.

How amazing would the TNG warp core be. Could make it a plug in and the pulse feature would be such a great addition on the tree.
I think you’re on to something.
I’m hoping for the Enterprise B in 2023, or maybe a alien ship that hasn’t been done yet, like the Cardassians
We’ve waited for the B a looong time and I love the idea of a Cardassian starship.
