50 years ago this year, Captain Kirk and his crew first appeared on small screens across America. The interstellar adventures of the Starship Enterprise quickly captivated audiences, turning the show into an iconic piece of television history. Press the button on the ornament to illuminate the scene and hear dialogue from the original Star Trek TV series!
Unfortunately, this piece was scarce when it was released at the October 1st Ornament Debut. I was the first one in the door and there were none to be had except for those that had reserved the precious few ahead of time.
I probably should’ve sprung for the Death Star Tree Topper as an investment purchase but that is a lot to ask of a Trek fan.

Box Text: “Set phasers to stun.” Considering the alternatives, enemies of the Federation are lucky to hear this command from a Starfleet officer. With additional settings that include overload, disintegrate, and kill, the phaser is the versatile – and powerful – standard issue weapon carried by Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in the original STAR TREK television series. Since then, versions of the phenomenally cool phaser have appeared in almost every STAR TREK incarnation. Now, with this ornament, STAR TREK fans can spend the holidays with phasers set on “fun”!
Logic or loyalty? Spock remains true to both in The Menagerie, a Star Trek original series two-parter from 1966. Written by series creator Gene Rodenberry, the award-winning episode incorporates pre-Kirk footage from an unaired installment that was originally set to be the pilot episode. Spock and Kirk find themselves at Starbase 11, where they meet Spock’s previous captain, Christopher Pike. Now burned and paralyzed from an accident, Pike can no longer walk or talk. Communicating with flashing lights controlled by his brainwaves, he can only answer yes or no, and Spock in the only one who can help him! His predicament and the mutinous lengths to which Spock will go for his former captain and friend lead to one of the series’ most well-known adventures.
Press the button on the ornament to hear Spock and Captain Kirk speak and see Captain Pike’s light flash.
If you had to invent a futuristic communications device, what would it look like? decades before flip phones beacame commonplace, the visionary prop artists of STAR TREK created the convincing, portable, and highly desirable method for 23rd ceturay Starfleet crew members to keep in touchwith each other. Its transmissions could cross great distances, and its functions included a locator that anticipated today’s GPS.
Open the lid and press the buttons inside to the lights flash and hear portions of actual communicator conversations form the original STAR TREK television series.
Box Text: A routine cruise turns deadly when the U.S.S. Enterprise is prematurely pressed into service to protect the secret “Project Genesis” experiment. Responding to an enigmatic call for help, Captain Spock offers his ship and eager but inexperienced crew to veteran commander Admiral James T. Kirk. Together they face an old enemy, Khan Noonien Singh, who lures Kirk into a battle of revenge. Khan is defeated, but not before unleashing the experimental Genesis Device, creating new challenges for the future of the Federation.
