Christmas is Hanging a Dying Vulcan on the Tree

Halloween hasn’t even arrived yet but already Hallmark has me thinking of Christmas, especially of one that will be nerdy and bright. And how can you not help getting all nerdy at Christmas with this Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan The Needs of the Many Ornament. This ornament shows Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and Mr.Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and depicts the scene from Wrath of Khan where Spock saves the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise at the cost of his own life. In addition you can press a button on this keepsake ornament to hear the film’s quote The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few…or the one.

You can purchase the Needs of the Many ornament through the Hallmark website by clicking here.

Maybe in 2016 Hallmark will create a Star Trek III: The Search for Spock ornament, preferably one where Spock is reborn after dying for everyone’s sins. It would make a great Christmas tree topper.
