04) 1994 Klingon Bird of Prey


IT’S THE KLINGONS! Shields up, and red alert! Just kidding – the Klingon’s are now allies with the United Federation of Planets … or are they???

The 1994 Klingon Bird of Prey Hallmark ornament is modeled after the imposing Klingon space vessels from the hit television series: STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. With this fierce battleship orbiting around your tree, you had better notify Starfleet Command to send help immediately, just in case the Klingon commander has something up his sleeve. This meticulously detailed Klingon starship features automatically and continuously flickering and glowing lights from the front torpedo launcher and the rear engines.
You can plug this ornament into any miniature light bulb socket on a standard miniature Christmas tree light string, or plug it into the Hallmark Legacy Cord (sold separately).
Artist: Lynn Norton
