La Sirena Ornament Review has posted a review of the latest Hallmark Star Trek ornament. La Sirena was the first ornament representing Star Trek: Picard and is available in stores now.

As for the “magic” features, this year’s Hallmark offering doesn’t have any lighting effects, though this version of La Sirena does have an integrated sound chip which cycles through a handful of audio clips from Star Trek: Picard’s first season — all from Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), though it would have been nice to have at least one recording of the starship’s captain, Cris Rios (Santiago Cabrera) in the mix.

This ornament has no bells and whistles. The 1994 plastic Klingon Bird of Prey from Hallmark has lights that are powered by plugging into a string of Christmas lights, which the Bounty edition does not because it is solid metal. The die casting is very good. A lot of little details can be seen and felt, from tiny ridges on the fuselage and raised patterns on the wings to the detailed weapons turrets. The finished product is clean with no visible seams or flaws.

Holding this hefty little bird in my hand I can imagine a couple of humpback whales inside. No wonder it’s so heavy!

“In fact, if you look at the photo on the ornament’s box, you can barely make out the details in the sculpt. Honestly, it doesn’t even photograph that well — but when you take a look at the 1994 Bird of Prey ornament, THAT ship looks like it flew right off the screen and onto my tree.”

Veteran Hallmark artist Jake Angell has once again outdone himself with the design of “Mirror, Mirror” Spock.  Standing with his arms crossed, Spock is a handsome figure. The details—from his trademark beard to his medals and Terran Empire badge—are precise for such a small model. His gold sash hangs neatly over his left thigh and his dagger is at his right hip.

Every year, collectors anxiously await the release of Hallmark’s next Star Trek Keepsake ornaments. The first Star Trek Hallmark ornament was the original USS Enterprise NCC-1701 in 1991. Since then, Hallmark has produced at least one Star Trek ornament with lights and sound every year, as well as some without the bells and whistles. And with Christmas two months away, it’s time to start thinking about the holidays.

For 2020, the folks at Hallmark have outdone themselves. Not only are there 3 new Star Trek Keepsake ornaments,  there’s also a large tree topper, and all are themed around the classic episode “Mirror, Mirror,” And together, they tell a story, for real.

Equipment: Hallmark U.S.S. Vengeance Keepsake Ornament Review
The U.S.S. Vengeance is molded in a charcoal grey color which is great contrast for the blue LED lights. Speaking of the lights, the U.S.S. Vengeance is illuminated on the front and back of each nacelle, the deflector dish and the impulse engines at the rear of the saucer section. The lights are subtle but they manage to give this tiny ship…(read more at Geekstronomy)

Equipment: Hallmark 50th Anniversary U.S.S. Enterprise Keepsake Ornament
This version of the U.S.S. Enterprise is made from the same mold that was used for the SDCC exclusive U.S.S. Enterprise. The version from San Diego was a reproduction of the Enterprise that was used in the pilot episode, “The Cage,” which means it has “points” on nacelle domes. That is a fine detail that most would never notice but Hallmark doesn’t disappoint…(read more at Geekstronomy)

Equipment: Hallmark Exclusive U.S.S. Enterprise Keepsake Ornament
This exclusive edition is painted to look as the Enterprise did when it first graced television screens in 1966. I have never been disappointed by any of the Keepsake ornaments that Hallmark has produced and this one is another example of their greatness. The level of detail on this small ship is above and beyond, including the extra detail to the…(read more at Geekstronomy)

Equipment: Hallmark Keepsake Ornament U.S.S. Franklin
The sculpture of the Franklin is spot on. I am always amazed just how much detail can be poured into a small ornament. The U.S.S. Franklin NX-326 measures 3.5″ W x 1.1″ H x 5.15″ D. This makes it the perfect size for display because it doesn’t take up too much room. I am sure it would look great next to…(read more at Geekstronomy)
