Looking to add to your Star Trek tree, stay on theme and keep within Trek canon? Don’t overlook Hallmark’s NASA ornaments released form 1994-1999.
On the evening of September 8, 1966, over 10 million people tuned in to NBC to see the premiere of a new television series called STAR TREK. From the moment they heard “Space, the final frontier…these are voyages of the Starship Enterprise…” millions were hooked. The series would run for only 3 seasons, but the show’s success in syndication would inspire several major motion pictures and several additional television series. Through it all, STAR TREK has become an icon of pop culture.
This 1994 Hallmark puzzle was an early version of the ornament sneak peeks that we see today. In order to see the 1995 Star Trek ornament the puzzle had to be assembled and then with the “Magic Eye” technique you would learn the identity of the ornament.
If you try and cheat by looking at the cover you will only see a question mark in its place along with the first three Star Trek ornaments Hallmark released.
