Hallmark’s Ornament Premiere runs July 9-17, 2022 with Keepsake Ornament Club members getting to shop Ornament Premiere starting July 8!’s Two Most Depressing Star Trek Ornaments

“Jeffrey Hunter refused to film additional scenes as Pike, which is why we got a story that allowed another actor to play the part under heavy make-up and a giant facial scar shaped like the Falkland Islands. Amazingly this convoluted plan to cut costs and buy time resulted in an acclaimed two-part episode that welcomed Pike into Star Trek canon – and it also gave us the second-most depressing Star Trek Christmas ornament of all time.”; ‘Star Trek’ Only Saved Captain Pike Out Of Cheapness, May 20, 2022

“A Christmas ornament that lovingly recreates the famous scene in which one of the main characters slowly dies from radiation poisoning. Here’s your greatest tragedy dangling from a tree. Merry fucking Christmas, Spock fans!; 6 Movie Merchandise Misguided Messes May 29, 2015

Trek Core, May 1, 2022

Strange New Worlds is always fun, entertaining, exciting, heartwarming, inspiring, and most of all, very worthy of the name Star Trek.”, April 29, 2022

“If a “Star Trek” show is going to begin this strongly establishing its setting and characters with the passion and attention to detail of a ’90s Trek show, then we will only have better and better things to look forward to.”

Slash Film, May 1, 2022

“Funny, inspiring, and kind of amazing, Strange New Worlds is, so far, the best new Trek in years.”

IGN, May 1, 2022

“It simply wants to tell Trek stories the way they used to be told — one space battle, one diplomatic summit, one alien virus, one spatial anomaly, one transporter accident at a time.”

NPR, May 1, 2022

“The first 5 episodes of Strange New Worlds more than prove there’s a place in contemporary Star Trek for some breezy, exciting, and self-contained stories.”

Gizmodo, May 1, 2022

“The new show demonstrates the highest production values — and ethical values. In a landscape of wishy-washy storytelling, this one takes a stand.”

IndieWire, May 1, 2022

“It’s off to a promising start, with a solid crew brimming with potential. By going back to the past, Strange New Worlds points the way to a brighter future.“

TV Line, May 1, 2022

Strange New Worlds is the most easy-breezy Trek in years. It’s here to make new friends, for sure. But it’s not leaving behind its oldest fans either.“

Inverse, May 1, 2022

“With Strange New Worlds they’ve got the real thing at last – a live-action, modern series that actually feels like Star Trek. Watching the first three episodes of this show was like sinking into a warm bath, and I was reminded of just how satisfying this format can be.”

Radio Times, May 1, 2022

“Strange New Worlds is the Paramount Plus Trek show that finally relaxes and embraces the classic Trek format, while still feeling fresh and modern.”

CNET, April 30, 2022

“This is an extremely promising start for the latest branch of the ever-expanding Trek universe. Strange New Worlds may be boldly going where its predecessors have gone before, but it’s doing so in style.“
