I love Christmas ornaments and I love SciFi, in particular Star Trek. Hallmark puts out at least one new Star Trek ornament per year and I always check them out. I have several favorites, but the one I am reviewing is one based on the movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
This movie is, in my opinion, the best of the Star Trek movies. This ornament is based on a battle scene in the movie with an Admiral Kirk and Captain Spock on the bridge. This ornament is one of the "magic" ornaments with sounds and lights. There are three quotes from the movie.
KIRK: "It's coming through now Kahn." KHAN: "Times up, Admiral." KIRK: "Here it comes...FIRE!" (phaser fire, explosions). It is missing probably the most famous line in the movie: Kirk yelling "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!" I was disappointed that particular line was missing, but I still enjoy my ornament.
Some ornaments go up in value as the years pass, but not all of them. I don't know if this one will or not. It really doesn't matter to me because I really did not purchase it as a collectible, but if it goes up in value, I won't mind that either ;). It's made in China so I gave it a low score there. I really prefer to see things made in the USA.
