2018 Hallmark Keepsake decorations revealed

Hallmark have released their 2018 Dreambook, featuring all their Keepsake Christmas decorations for the year, and among them a pretty generous selection of Star Trek releases. Continue below for all the details of those, and other new Hallmark releases.

Every year Hallmark release a Star Trek ship ornament, and this year we've got two! One of those is of course the USS Discovery, which features light effects.






The second ship is a new version of the TOS USS Enterprise, but this year made out of metal! Most of the range will be available from July, but the metal Enterprise isn't expected to arrive until October.



There's a prop decoration, a tricorder, which is a bit of a rarity in the Star Trek range (the last prop, a phaser, was released in 2009!). This has both light and sound features.




And a more regular format for the range, a diorama, this time based on The Naked Time, and this too has a sound function.





In addition to the main range, there is also a convention exclusive pair of ornaments; M'Ress and Arex from The Animated Series. These have been rendered in the same style as the long running Star Trek Legends series, so it's really pleasing to see the TAS characters get to join the rest of the TOS crew released in previous years. Plus Arex's pose is just awesome!

These will be a limited edition of 2800, available to members of the Keepsake Ornaments Club, and at San Diego Comic-Con, Star Trek Las Vegas, and New York Comic Con. Image via TrekMovie.


That's not the only convention exclusive from Hallmark this year, Popminded have revealed there will a Quark pin, in Hallmark's PXL8 range, also available at Star Trek Las Vegas.


Finally, one other new release from Hallmark, available now is a new pair of tiny itty bittys Captain Kirk and Spock flushes, joined to a clippy:

The Eaglemoss USS Discovery looks much better than the Hallmark one!

It's crazy that a Christmas decoration looks far better than a £30 Eaglemoss Model.
