Cracked.com’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.”

Cracked.com; ‘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!

“Paint job was horrible. I know that when I am purchasing a Hallmark product, I have an expectation of receiving a quality product. It should be gift-worthy. When I received the Picard ornament, I was, frankly, shocked. If I had had the opportunity to examine beforehand, I would have passed this by completely.

What a retched paint job. This is Captain Jean Luc Picard, not the Joker! Workmanship matters. Pride in ones work should matter. Where is the quality control in such things? Shame on you for releasing such a poor quality item.”

“Smaller than expected. This was good quality sturdy as any other hallmark ornaments. I was a little disappointed on the size. We have all the other Star Trek captain ornaments and was adding Picard to the collection although he is almost half the size of the others. Still a great ornament just strange that they decided to make him differently sized than the others.”

MRN Bricks: “Are you taking odds that sooner or later this guy (dus15) is going to get exposed as making fakes? That much money is going to attract a lot of them, especially for people with too much money and who don’t know what to look for.”

HSTO: ”That has certainly crossed my mind and it would be pretty easy to alter the red version of Uhura (and the glow in the dark Defiant) and then print a box. I began posting the ornament listings by seller for this very reason.”

Artist Inspirations: 1992 Galileo Shuttlecraft

The Galileo’s unfortunate condition in 2012 as it was going up for up auction.
Top: 2013 image after restoration. The Galileo ornament was quite an accurate sculpt for 1992. The only standout differences are the rounded roof rails that were straightened and the lack of landing pads.
Galileo’s unveiling at Johnson Space Center in Houston where it has resided since 2013.
The restored shuttlecraft was used for an episode of Star Trek Continues, 2014’s ”Fairest of Them All”.

Artist Inspirations: Tabletop Transporter (2019)

In what first appears to be a sculpt that would likely be an aggregate of different poses turns out to be from one image.

All three characters in the same pose, phasers on their sides and tricorder hanging from McCoy’s right shoulder.

Sculptor, Orville Wilson, took a few liberties by slimming down the uniforms while bulking up the physiques. I would be happy to have Mr. Wilson commissioned to design a statue in my ”likeness” after I am gone.

Artist Inspirations: Legends Series

The iconic poses found in the Hallmark Legends series can be found in Trek merchandise like character standees, trading cards, figures and posters.

Left: Cardboard Standee Cutout on Amazon.
Middle: 2016 Dave and Buster’s trading card.

Many of the Hallmark Legends poses can be found in the Star Trek Quotable Notables Boxed Card Set that was first available on Amazon in 2017, the year after the final Legends ornament was released.

Send the coolest greetings with this Star Trek Quotable Noteables Boxed Card Set! Each boxed set includes cards and sticker sheets of your favorite Star Trek characters. 
Characters include: Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov. Box Contents: 7 Cards, 7 Envelopes, 7 Sticker sheets.

Right: 2013 Hallmark Legends: Scotty.

Scotty seen holding a Trident Scanner which was used to repair power relays. 

The term “trident scanner,” was first described almost thirty years later, in the script for “Trials and Tribble-ations,” where the device is apparently named after its general shape, which resembles a trident.

Memory Alpha

I’ll take some of the credit/blame for the standees deviations! In the design phase, when I was asked about Spock, I said something to the effect of, “Can we please NOT have him just standing there doing the hand thing?” And we didn’t. I remember being asked what Scotty could be doing, and I suggested his use of the trident scanner; it’s my favorite of his engineering tools. As for the Sulu deviation, I’m pretty confident the decision was made early that Kirk would be the only one of the seven brandishing a hand phaser. We did want each of the Star Trek Legends appear to be actively doing something, so Sulu got a tricorder. I mean, legends don’t just stand there!

A closer look should show that of all our Star Trek ornaments, the percentage depicting the use or display of a weapon is pretty low. By my (quick) count, it’s only nine:

1996—Riker (phaser)

1999—Worf (bat’leth)

2010—Kirk and Spock (lirpa)

2013—Gorn and Kirk (stone dagger)

2018—Kirk and Sulu (épée), M’Ress and Arex (phaser)

2020—Sulu (dagger), Uhura (dagger)

2021—Chekov (phaser)

We prefer not to show weapons in our Star Trek ornaments but we will when we feel it adds to the storytelling aspect of a design. Note that in 2018, the Kirk design released that year by Hallmark Ornaments substituted a communicator for the phaser he typically carries in that stance of his Quogs design, a move that was intentional on our part. Not familiar with Star Trek Quogs? Check out this link from 2009—you’ll even see the greeting card we did with them.

Note: 2019—Transporter (Kirk, Spock and McCoy with phasers)

2003 Scorpion: A Peak Under the Canopy

The 2003 Scorpion is a rare collaboration of two hallmarks of Hallmark. Lynn Norton sculpted the ship and Anita Marra Rogers sculpted the characters within. Due to last minute changes and the darkening of the Scorpion’s canopy most people haven’t had a good look at the character sculpts inside.

Image used in print with clear canopy.
Actual ornament appearance with tinted canopy.


Although the levels of tinting can vary between Scorpion ornaments nothing lets you see the details inside the cockpit quite like completely removing the canopy.
