Kevin Dilmore has announced that the 2020 Hallmark Star Trek Storyteller ornaments will be available until the entire series has been produced. This means Kirk, Sulu, Uhura and the Enterprise tree topper will be available to purchase in 2021 and 2022.
We still have Spock, McCoy, Scotty and Chekov to be released over the next two years. Although there hasn’t been any official announcement, it is likely we will see Spock and Scotty in 2021 and McCoy and Chekov in the final year.
Whichever ornaments are released next year they will be available in both 2021 and 2022. There is still no word if the 2021-2022 Star Trek releases will be exclusively Storytellers or if we will see other Star Trek ornaments. With all the new Star Trek series that have and will be coming out it is hard to imagine we won’t see something from Picard or Lower Decks.
This will be the last post about Hallmark pricing for 2020. In my response to their last email to me I asked why the equivalent Harry Potter Storytellers are cheaper than their Star Trek counterparts and below you will find their response.
Hopefully, the higher prices don’t drive away fans.
We still haven’t received an answer to our inquiry about Hallmark’s pricing confusion but we do have an update. Unfortunately, the pricing on Hallmark’s website has now been changed to match the higher prices of the 2020 Dream Book.
The 2020 Dream Book is now available to KOC members in physical form and a virtual catalog is available for download on Hallmark’s website. Hallmark has also posted the 2020 ornaments on their website. Unfortunately, the two do not jive. Hallmark’s website has the expected prices of $29.99 for Uhura, Kirk and Sulu and $119.99 for the Enterprise.
The Dream Book is listing inflated prices of $34.99 for the character ornaments and $149.99 for the Tree Topper.
We have reached out for clarification but have not heard back at this time. Stay tuned.

When the 2020 Hallmark Star Trek Storyteller Ornaments were announced they had a price tag of $29.99 per character and $119.99 for the Enterprise Tree Topper. We now have had our first glimpse of the 2020 Hallmark Dream Book and the Storyteller characters are now $34.99 and the Tree Topper is a whopping $149.99. OUCH! You will be looking at $254.96 for the 2020 Star Trek lineup and that is before the Event Exclusive Tribble appears on eBay for $60.00 – $100.00.
