Strange New Worlds Issue 9 - Sep/Oct 1993
I love your Strange New Worlds newsletter! Especially the fine articles you
write about the newest Hallmark Star Trek ornaments such as the U.S.S. Enterprise and the
Galileo Shuttlecraft. You also keep us on top of the recent prices and values of these two
Star Trek ornaments. Keep up the great work!
In mid-August, look for Hallmark's newest Trek ornament at your local Hallmark
store. Their 1993 Trek Keepsake ornament is the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. This
holiday miniature of the Next Generation ship completes Hallmark's series of Trek
ornaments. Sales of last year's Galileo ornament were not as high as projected, so
Hallmark currently plans to produce fewer ornaments. But do not hold that as gospel. If
demand quickly outstrips supply, they can return to production, just as they did with the
classic Enterprise ornament in 1991. The '91 ornament currently is selling among
Hallmark collectors for $200 to $225.
Dear Mr./Ms. Davidsmeyer:
SNW is a beautifully done, very informative addition to media-fandom, you should be
proud of it. Star Wars fandom, in particular, needs such a meeting place. So many of us
collect S.W. toys, etc. and the articles and letters from other collectors had information
that even I - who thought I had heard it all - was surprised by. You have some very
Thank you, once again, for introducing our little portion of SW fandom to Strange

We recommend it to our customers frequently. Continued success!

Let me take advantage of these letters to clarify a question many of my readers seem to
have. regarding my name. Jo (spelt without an 'e' on the end) is a female name. Jo is not
short for anything, though my middle name is Ann. Thanks for all your kind words of
support. I hope you continue to enjoy your explorations through our Strange New Worlds.
