52) 2009 Starfleet Phaser

Original Retail:  $18.50

Artist:

Novelty:  Battery light and sound

Box Text:  “Set phasers to stun.” Considering the alternatives, enemies of the Federation are lucky to hear this command from a Starfleet officer.  With additional settings that include overload, disintegrate, and kill, the phaser is the versatile – and powerful – standard issue weapon carried by Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in the original STAR TREK television series.  Since then, versions of the phenomenally cool phaser have appeared in almost every STAR TREK incarnation.  Now, with this ornament, STAR TREK fans can spend the holidays with phasers set on “fun”!
