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.”

HSTO: “May I ask how and why you have had so many of these ornaments? This is your fifth Uhura you have put up this year along with four of the 2011 Defiants. How many more do you have?”

dus115: “This is my last one.”

HSTO: “How did you ever end up with five?”

dus115: ”Just from collecting. Especially at the height of COVID-19.”

HSTO: ”Where were you able to find them?”

Usually seen in “engineering and security” red. Lieutenant Uhura wore this striking “command” gold uniform in only one original episode, “The Carbonite Maneuver” (1966).

This special event edition repaint of the 2007 Lietenant Uhura limited quantity ornament was created for exclusive distribution at major collector events and conventions.
