In the California-class [line], there are three types of hull painting: there’s blue, red, and yellow.
We’ve extended the visual metaphor of the uniforms to the ships, and the Cerritos has yellow on the hull because it’s primarily a second contact engineering ship. They show up to planets that need engineering stuff done on them in order to be able to communicate with the Federation.
There’s also, you’ll see in the show, blue-hulled California class ships, which are usually deployed to places where there has to be more medical expertise, and red-hulled ships that are like for moving around ambassadors and doing more command-level stuff.

Besides the Cerritos, the other 27 known California-class ships now include…

Hallmark appears to be expanding their Star Trek universe. The Star Trek water globe, available in August, seems to be a direct descendent of Hallmark’s take on the Keepsake Table Toppers (2016’s “To Boldly Go” and 2019’s Transporter). The water globe has the familiar Star Trek character figures and employs the light and sound technology seen in the Keepsake line for years.
It has yet to be seen how the water globe will be marketed but it is possible it will be in stores as an off-season product since it will not be under the Keepsake label.
