Star Trek Hallmark Keepsake decorations

Hallmark's Keepsake range is a huge ongoing series of Christmas decorations, featuring characters and other designs from numerous properties, including Star Trek. The first Star Trek design, a model of the USS Enterprise was released in 1991, and there have been new Star Trek ornaments every year ever since, with between one and six new Star Trek designs available every year.

The Star Trek offerings tend to fall into three categories: Models of ships, which have featured every year since the first Star Trek piece in the range. Figurines of individual characters, sometimes with sections of a location, which have featured almost every year since 1995. And dioramas featuring multiple characters and/or sections of locations, most often recreating specific moments from episodes and movies; these have been a regular feature in the range since 2004. There have been a handful of other formats as well, including more traditional glass decorations, props, and even a postage stamp. Many of the ornaments feature light or sound effects.

This list is split into the four, collecting together the starships range, figurines, dioramas, and a fourth category cover other releases. Within each section the lists are in reverse release order, with the latest designs at the top of the section.

Star Trek stories by John Jackson Miller

This is a list of Star Trek stories written by John Jackson Miller, who to date has written a number of stories in the 24th century era. Before entering the world of Star Trek, Miller was a well established writer, particularly known for his many Star Wars comics and novels.

Miller would have written for Star Trek many years earlier, having sold a story for what would have been a novella in the Corps of Engineers series - Indeed it was his first successful prose pitch. Unfortunately the series was then cancelled before his story reached publication.
