Sneak Peek Week: Star Trek on 1/17/22

Hallmark has announced a Sneak Peek Week with Star Trek leading things off on Monday. The week’s previews consist of ”Keepsake ornaments, itty bittys and gift releases”. What does that mean for our beloved Star Trek franchise? It will likely be a more formal introduction of the final two Storyteller ornaments, Dr. Leonard McCoy and Lt. Commander Montgomery Scott, which we previewed in November. Stay tuned!

I’m pretty damn sure my dad would consider this canon. And, as far as I’m concerned, it is canon.”

STAR TREK CONTINUES is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, fan-produced webseries… the brainchild of long-time Star Trek: The Original Series fan — and producer, director, actor, voice-actor, musician — Vic Mignogna. 
 
From “Where No Man Has Gone Before” to “Turnabout Intruder,” TOS chronicled the first four years (2265–2269) of James T. Kirk’s historic five-year mission before the series was prematurely cancelled. STAR TREK CONTINUES is proud to be part of Trek history, completing the final year (late 2269 – early 2270) of the original adventure. 
 
STC shot in an 18,500-square-foot studio which housed the largest, most complete standing TOS sets in the world — including the bridge, corridors, turbolifts, quarters, sickbay, briefing/rec room, transporter room, Jefferies tube, engineering, auxiliary control, shuttlecraft, planet set, and much more — precisely constructed using the original Star Trek blueprints. 
 
Vic and (his) team of talented film professionals raised the bar in the quality of stories and overall production on one of the most recognized, popular fan productions ever made.

HMS Bounty Ornament Sells Out for NYCC Online Event

Yesterday’s NYCC online-only event went live at 11:59 am E.S.T. and while it only took the event exclusive Star Wars Boba Fett ten minutes to sell out and the Ghostbusters Ectomobile 45 minutes, it took the HMS Bounty Star Trek ornament more than 30 hours. The Star Trek event exclusive ornament had previously been available for the SDCC online event (July 23, 2021) and the KOC online event (August 17, 2021).

All 3,750 Klingon Bird-of-Prey ornaments have now been released to the public through the three events. If you are still in need of an ornament you will now need to look at the secondary market where eBay prices have seemed to bottom out at around $60 as of late.

HMS Bounty Event Exclusive Available Tomorrow for NYCC

  • ORDER HERE!
  • Available October 7, NOON E.S.T. *ONLINE ONLY*
  • Log into your Hallmark account before noon so you can expedite check out. Limited quantities (less than 1,900) will sell out quickly. July’s SDCC event sold out in five minutes.
  • If you do not have a Hallmark account you will need to register beforehand. 
  • If you already have a Hallmark account be sure to confirm your password is still active ahead of the event.
  • REFRESH! In July, the website didn’t go live until 12:02. There were reports that ornaments went from ‘COMING SOON’ to ‘OUT OF STOCK’ and back to ‘IN STOCK’ just from refreshing the page.
  • Don’t get greedy. Hallmark says you’re not allowed to purchase more than one of each ornament. You may consider getting only one ornament in total. Most customers who had issues during the SDCC event seemed to be buying more than one ornament (i.e. an HMS Bounty AND a Boba Fett).
  • Just because you have an ornament in your shopping cart does not mean it has been allocated to you. You must have your credit card ready. Better yet, have it already on file through the website.
  • Create a hallmark.com account and save your credit card info under profile – payment methods.
  • If you have purchased from hallmark.com before it is likely your credit card is still on file. Verify ahead of time that it is still a good credit card number.

For details on how to purchase exclusives, visit PopMinded.com/Events and expect the PopMinded convention shop to return in-person, to a full line-up of events in 2022.
