Box Text: “Hailing frequencies are open.” From the command deck of the Starship Enterprise, Lieutenant Uhura breaks the silence of deep space. As communications officer, she transmits messages in all the languages of the known galaxy. Hers is often the first human voice to be heard by alien races in unexplored star systems. Both Uhura’s name and her spirit reflect the Swahili word for “freedom.”

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.

Mankind’s existence is in the balance as the ships and crew from different eras join to battle the enemies of the Federation and the forces that caused their convergence. Press the button on the bottom of the ornament to see the ship’s deflector dish and engines illuminate.
Lynn Norton..“The triple-nacelle ornament from (the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode) ‘All Good Things…’ was based on my original sculpture from 1993. Hallmark allows artists to retain original artwork for our portfolios, although the sculptures are often badly damaged from the process of molding and prototyping. The licensor supplied me with a number of photographs of the filming model as it was being refitted with additional components. In addition to adding the third nacelle and battle-bridge modifications, I made numerous proportional adjustments and refinements to the sculpture. I knew the 2007 ornament would be battery powered and wouldn’t have to pass the rigorous UL tests for tapping electricity from a light string. I still had to make provisions for LED placements, wire paths and battery installation, which included an access door on the underside of the saucer.” – See more at: http://www.startrek.com/article/hallmark-sculptor-lynn-norton-on-the-storied-history-of-trek-keepsake-ornaments?ecid=PCID-2617611&pa=affcj#sthash.eHmdJ3hi.dpuf
