Showcase your Star Trek pride with this one-of-a-kind tree topper
Most of us Star Trek fans have at least one ornament to hang on our Christmas trees or to help decorate our house. But few of us top our trees with something from the franchise and certainly with nothing like Hallmark is offering this year.
The Hallmark Keepsake 2020, Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Storytellers Musical Christmas Tree Topper With Light offers the theme from Star Trek: The Original Series (to match the exquisite replica of the ship), and it Interacts with Storytellers Keepsake Ornaments (from the Mirror, Mirror universe) which are sold separately. Now, you’re probably used to paying $30 or $40 for ornaments, but this tree topper is about a foot tall and a foot and a half wide so the price is considerably higher. But it’s something you’ll only buy once, and you’ll have it for a long time hopefully.
If you don’t put up a tree, this still makes a perfect collectible for the $149.99 price, and with an average of 4.8 stars out of 5 from Amazon, reviewers are giving it the thumbs-up.
From the product description:
"Add the flagship of the United Federation of Planets—with the theme song to the original Star Trek television series—to your holiday celebrations with this U.S.S. Enterprise Christmas tree topper. Plug it into the included power adapter for constant illumination, then press the button—either on the included Starfleet insignia remote control or on the top of the tree topper—to start a sound and light show featuring the music of “Theme from Star Trek.” Connect one or more Star Trek Storytellers ornaments—Captain James T. Kirk, Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu and Lieutenant Nyota Uhura (each sold separately)—to unlock additional performances that you can’t access with the ornaments alone!"
This would definitely be a gift for the serious Star Trek collector, and one can only imagine a tree completely decorated with ornaments from the franchise and this topper to complete the look. If you do decorate your tree with only Trek items, please take pictures, and share our on Facebook page. It’s something I’d love to see!
