Las Vegas was home to a unique interactive Star Trek destination from 1998-2008 called Star Trek: The Experience. The gift shop offered many non-Hallmark Star Trek ornaments and a Christmas tree skirt and now it seems there was also a matching Christmas stocking (703308). The stocking had an original MSRP of $20.00.
The tree skirt doesn’t come around very often on ebay and this is my first time seeing the matching Christmas stocking. The auction ends November 16, 2021 so if this is something of interest you may want to jump on it quickly.
This auction is not affiliated with this site.
Final sale price $139.41 with $15.99 shipping.
Another tree skirt sold by itself on the same day for $139.50 with free shipping.
Star Trek: The Experience, which opened in January of 1998, was operated by the Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. The attraction included a Deep Space Nine-style Promenade, a Quark’s Bar-inspired restaurant, the Klingon Encounter and Borg Invasion 4-D rides. After Cedar Fair and CBS Consumer Products could not come to an agreement, it was announced that the attraction would shutter. A closing ceremony was held on September 1, 2008.

It is not often we come across overlooked Star Trek ornaments but that seems to be the case this week. A big “thank you” to our reader, Rob, for discovering these non-Hallmark ornaments when they appeared on eBay this week. It appears to be a collection of Star Trek ornaments that were sold at Star Trek: The Experience, officially licensed by CBS Studios.
We have long known about the Starfleet Command/United Federation of Planets ornament and it appears often on resell sites. What was once thought to be a one off stamped metal ornament now appears to be at least a series of five that were sold at Star Trek: The Experience between 1998 and 2008.
