It’s that time of year again, when Hallmark’s annual Star Trek Keepsake Ornaments are revealed to the world!

We’ve known about Hallmark’s plan to release a USS Franklin Keepsake Ornament — the featured starship from last summer’s Star Trek Beyondfor quite a while, but the company now has high-resolution images of this upcoming addition to the fleet available ahead of the July 15 release date.

Crafted by artist Jake Angell, the Franklin ornament also features internal lighting to both the bridge window and warp nacelles:

Discovered half-buried on an alien world more than a century after its launch from Earth, the U.S.S. Franklin proved its worth to Captain Kirk and the stranded crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in 2016’s STAR TREK BEYOND™. This Christmas ornament brings the ship to life with handcrafted detailing and lighting effect.

The USS Franklin Keepsake Ornament will be available from Hallmark on July 15 for $32.95.

Accompanying the Franklin is this new Jean-Luc Picard and Data Star Trek: The Next Generation talking ornament, featuring both characters in their television-era looks aboard the Enterprise-D.

You can preview the audio component here.

A Christmas ornament that captures the essence of operations aboard the bridge of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D with Captain Jean-Luc Picard at the helm? Make it so! Fans of STAR TREK: The Next Generation™ won’t want to miss this cool decoration that also features beloved android Lieutenant Commander Data and dialogue from the show.

The Picard-Data Keepsake Ornament will be available from Hallmark on July 15 for $29.95.

Hallmark isn’t stopping with their annual ornaments! To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the company is expanding their Trek itty bittys line — previously just featuring the Original Series crew — to take on TNG as well.

Coming August 19, will feature an online exclusive Geordi / Data plush doll two-pack featuring both characters together:

As chief engineer of the U.S.S. Enterprise in STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION™, Geordi La Forge quickly became a much-loved character with his endearing personality and unwavering perseverance. Wearing his signature VISOR™—a device used to provide him with a sense of sight beyond human capability—this cool plush character is a must-have for fans of all ages.

Affable android Data struggles to become more human but finds most emotions incomprehensible in the sci-fi adventure series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION™. Fans won’t have any trouble identifying how much they love this cute plush version of Data as he joins the ranks of Hallmark’s itty bittys® plush lineup.

Both are also listed for separate purchase at $6.36 each at Hallmark’s site now.

They’ll also be offering a wild Picard / Worf two-pack, which comes with a plush Enterprise-D as well!

This three-piece plush set will be a Hallmark Store exclusive, so if you’re interested in this neat release be sure to find a store in your area to inquire about availability.

Finally, as with last year’s 50th Anniversary Enterprise NCC-1701, Hallmark has announced a convention-exclusive ornament for the 2017 season: a battle-damaged Enterprise-C.

U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-C, a Keepsake Ornament inspired by the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise,” depicts the iconic starship with a battle-damage paint scheme as it appeared on screen. This repaint of a 2015 Keepsake Ornament has a total production run of 3,325 and sales will be limited to 225 per day.

This ornament will be exclusively available at Comic-Con International (San Diego, July 20-23), the Official 2017 Star Trek Convention (Las Vegas, August 2-6), and New York Comic Con (October 5-8).

This will be Hallmark’s first time attending the annual Las Vegas Trek convention; many fans were disappointed after the company limited its attendance to September’s Mission New York convention last year – so it’s nice to see that they’ll be trekking out to Vegas this summer.

Stay tuned for more Star Trek news as it happens!

    Would be cool if they did one of the new Enterprise A from the end of Beyond. Still some neat stuff here though!

    • Gene’s Vision

      Yes that would be a cool idea! Hallmark does amazing work in recreating their ornament line for the ships. The characters not so much though.

      • robjoh

        I agree,the characters leaves a lot to be desired. They’re ok and have a passing resemblance to the actor….mostly…..but some of them are very cartoony. Apparently it’s to do with the rights to the actor’s likeness. Or at least that’s the official explanation,when I asked at Comic-Con one year,lol! Probably why they do Spidey so well,lol! And Peanuts. Which are some of the non-Trek ornys I get.

        And I have to say that these days,what they are calling con exclusives,like the BD C this year,aren’t really exclusive any more. Like I’ve said on other forums,the second they are made available online,and I don’t mean from scalpers and ebay,they loose the right to be called con EXCLUSIVE. To me it is only logiacal that a con exlcusive is actually ONLY available at said con. Ok,rant over. lol!

        DEFO want the Franklin though! And an Enterprise A from STB would be GREAT! Gotta ask them about that at this years con. Actually,I might ask my Trek author friend who works for Hallmark about that,lol!

        • Gene’s Vision

          Well done and thanks for the info! Good Luck.

        • Anthony Clements

          I have a bone to pick w/companies that do ‘exclusives’, not everyone can afford to go to comic-con (even if they could get admission!) it just drives the secondary market price thru the roof for no reason other than $$.

          I still don’t have a Mirror universe NX01 yet, and Evilbay wants 100+ bucks!

  • Fiery Little One

    The Franklin will be a get for me. Since the NX-01 I have rarely missed a ship.

  • Trent

    So I’ll have to get the Franklin {as much as I hate the design ,Stupid bridge window}
    I wish it was possible to get the Battle damaged Enterprise C ,without having to go to the Con or paying s t-E-al Bay .
