One of the three exclusive ornaments to be sold at the San Diego Comic-Con next month will be a Star Trek ornament.

The other two ornaments are based on Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and this summer’s Superman Man of Steel movie.

The Star Trek ornament is the USS Kelvin, based on the ship of the same name featured in the beginning of 2009′s Star Trek movie.

The USS Kelvin ornament to be offered at Comic-Con features battery-powered light, and is a “battle-scarred” variant of the same Keepsake Ornament that will go on sale July 13 in Hallmark Gold Crown stores.

Other Trek ornaments making their debut next month include Montgomery Scott, and a Star Trek Arena ornament.

The “battle-scarred” variant USS Kelvin will be “limited to 175 pieces per day at each event for a total production run of 1,575. The ornament will sell for $35.

Those attending this year’s San Diego Comic-con, which takes place July 18-21, will get a sneak peek of next year’s ornaments.

For those on the East Coast, the same three ornaments will be offered at the New York Comic Con, to be held October 10-13.

    I used to have a complete collection of every Hallmark Star Trek ornament. Until they started doing this BS with comic-con exclusives. Now said complete collection is forever incomplete, and that pisses me off to the point where I don’t think I’ll buy them at all anymore. My health doesn’t allow me to travel for such conventions and my finances (and sanity) don’t allow me to purchase them off e-Bay for $400. So thanks to the genius who thought up doing these… you’ve lost a long-time loyal customer.

    eBay is auctions, so you can always keep watching for a good opportunity to snipe one at a low price. Don’t give up.

    I quit collecting these a long time ago when I finally realized the human sculpts are crap. I love the ships but for most of the character ornaments you have to use your imagination to make them look like the character they are supposed to represent.

    Well, I guess it depends on what you’re doing it for… if you’re collecting for the sake of a collection, then that’s understandable. If you’re collecting them because they’re cool, well, I could see being less obsessive about getting them all now, but I wouldn’t refrain from getting one I thought was cool just because I can’t have all of them.

    The ships are mostly what I get, they’re very cool flying around a tree.
