There were revelations and giveaways aplenty during the brilliantly named “Is There in Truth No Keepsakes? Hallmark and Star Trek” panel on Saturday morning at Star Trek Las Vegas. Hallmark’s licensing creative director Christine Taylor and senior writer Kevin Dilmore provided fans with an exclusive first look at four Star Trek Keepsake Ornaments from Hallmark’s 2020 line. Hallmark is going all out, as 2020 will mark the 30th anniversary of their Star Trek Keepsake Ornaments.
The Star Trek Storytellers Keepsake Ornament Series will launch with Captain Kirk, Security Chief Sulu, and Lt. Uhura as seen in the The Original Series (TOS) episode, “Mirror, Mirror.” Each ornament will feature sound from TOS and bases that light when the characters speak. Further, each character-themed ornament tells its own storylines from the episode, and when connected together to a Keepsake Power Cord, they build to a bigger part of the story, each playing off scenes with one another.
Fans were also wowed by the fourth 2020 ornament revelation. The U.S.S. Enterprise Tree Topper lights up and plays the TOS opening monologue, main theme and closing theme. When it’s paired with the characters in the Storyteller Series, the Tree Topper reacts by building a bigger storyline with coordinating sound effects and lights. Taylor and Dilmore also announced that they should expect additional coordinating Star Trek Storytellers Ornaments in the 2021 collection.
