Mission Chicago Announced, Mission New York Revisited

As part of the First Contact Day (April 5) festivities it was announced that in 2022 there will be a Star Trek: Mission Chicago event. This convention is the only officially licensed Star Trek event in the U.S. by CBS now that Star Trek Las Vegas has been replaced with The 55-Year Mission Tour in Las Vegas. ReedPop, who is putting on Mission Chicago, was behind events like New York Comic Con, MCM Comic Con London, Star Wars Celebration and Star Trek: Mission New York. It is expected that annual Missions in rotating cities will follow.

We invite you to Star Trek: Mission Chicago– the ultimate Star Trek fan experience for all ages! Boldly explore the past, present and future of the celebrated franchise while embracing the ideals of a diverse and inclusive future that remains at the center of one of the most iconic brands of all time. Enjoy three full days of interactive exhibits, major announcements, exclusive merchandise, celebrity guests, and more from the ever-evolving Star Trek universe.

Star Trek: Mission Chicago is coming to McCormick Place in Chicago IL, April 8th to April 10th 2022. 

In light of this announcement it seems only fitting to revisit 2016’s Star Trek: Mission New York which took place during Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary. To celebrate the anniversary, Hallmark displayed all 81 Star Trek ornaments that had been released up to that time (actually 80, “To Boldly Go” was still just a cardboard image).

Unfortunately, most of the photos of the Star Trek display were taken from a distance.

The gallery, in the form of a transporter chamber, stood beside Hallmark’s event booth. It was comprised of seven tall, vertical windows each holding a dozen or so ornaments.

Happily, one Star Trek fan posted a YouTube video of the ornaments which you can view at the bottom of this page. Below are the best screen caps I could get from IoMGeek’s September 3, 2016 video. Let me know if anyone has any photos of Hallmark’s ornament gallery they would like to share.

Hallmark Button Featuring 2016 Star Trek Ornament

Hallmark gave away souvenir buttons back in September at Star Trek Mission New York.  The buttons feature the 2016 50th Anniversary “Pilot” Enterprise with gold finish.  You can still get the ornament in stores this month but good luck finding a button anywhere.


Hallmark’s Star Trek Maxine Cosplay Ornament Showing Up on eBay

Word is they only made 25 ornaments available per day for the three-day event.  The Maxine ornament will be available for the last time at next month’s New York Comic-Con.  The biggest surprise is that the ornament is not a Keepsake ornament but “branded” with the Hallmark name. If you are looking to pick up the new Star Trek Maxine Cosplay ornament it is currently selling on eBay from $55-$129.


”…and exclusive ornaments from Hallmark, which sold out quickly each day of the convention. Of the two Hallmark exclusives, the U.S.S. Enterprise was awesome, while the Maxine figure was OK.” –Hollywood Soapbox

Friday Update From Star Trek Mission New York

Tweets are coming out from Hallmark at Star Trek Mission New York today and visitors to the booth are getting a walk down memory lane.  Hallmark is displaying all their Star Trek ornaments dating back to 1991.


Star Trek Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Gallery

“In 1991, Hallmark brought the 23rd century to our Christmas trees with the Starship Enterprise Keepsake Ornament in celebration of Star Trek’s 25th anniversary.  Instantly popular with fans, dozens of Keepsake Ornaments inspired by Star Trek television shows and feature films would follow.  On the 50th anniversary of the original series, we present this tour through the 26-year partnership with Star Trek and Hallmark.”


Sculpter Lynn Norton was even there signing ornaments!
