For historical purposes, below is the original campaign to get this ornament made.
There is a distinct difference between the original series Enterprise model and the movie series refit Enterprise model. The refit Enterprise is sometimes called the 1701-A model because it received that designation in the fourth and most successful of Star Trek films.It is hoped that by establishing these two facts, Hallmark will be convinced to produce an Enterprise 1701-A ornament for 2004 or in the very near future.
There is a large fan demand for a refit Enterprise 1701-A Hallmark Keepsake Light-Up ornament.
It is believed that Hallmark does not understand that there is a significant difference between the original TV Enterprise model and the film series Enterprise model Further, Hallmark mistakenly believes that they already produced that ornament in 1991, having it confused with the TV Enterprise design. Click on the image on the left to enlarge a graphic comparison of the two ships, highlighting their primary differences. Hallmark has not produced a movie era Enterprise.
I should also remind the reader that the first Star Trek Enterprise ornament based upon the original 1960s TV series was produced in 1991 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the TV show and is a extremely rare and highly sought ornament from Hallmark's line of Keepsake ornaments. This design is based upon the ship from Kirk and Spock's Star Trek, the most enduring of the Star Trek series television shows. Kirk and Spock's Star Trek continued with the successful movie series beginning in 1979, using the new refit Enterprise. In 2004, why not produce a Hallmark 1701-A refit Enterprise to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Star Trek films that began in 1979? This distinct Enterprise will be a welcome addition to the Hallmark Keepsake ornament line of Star Trek ornaments.

Although fans would probably like it, there are much more deserving ships to be made into ornaments.||This ship was only seen in one hour of a Star Trek episode.
