What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Christmas? Star Trek, right? I mean, how could it not be? So what better way to celebrate the holidays than with this $150 Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Musical Tree Topper With Light (affiliate link) from Hallmark. Wait – did that say $150? I was ready to pay at least $250. They’re practically giving them away.
The topper remains constantly illuminated when plugged in. With the push of a button on the included Starfleet insignia remote control, the Enterprise plays the theme from Star Trek and performs an accompanying light show. The ship can also be wired to additional Captain James T. Kirk, Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, and Lieutenant Nyota Uhura Star Trek ‘Storyteller’ ornaments (seen above, $35 apiece) to unlock additional performances. It’s a Christmas miracle!
I remember growing up how our Christmas tree topper was usually just the ceiling because my dad regularly overestimated the height of a tree that would fit in the living room. He’d also make sure to choose one with really low hanging branches, so it took fewer presents to fill the space under the tree. Consider that a free tip for all you parents out there.
