Ornament-a-Day 2019: City on the Edge of Forever

Easily one of my favorite ornaments, the City on the Edge of Forever ornament has been a staple of the Geek Tree since its release in 2004. Today’s Ornament-a-Day entry features James Kirk and Spock running through a portal to the past in pursuit of a (not depicted) insane Dr. McCoy.

It’s a string-powered ornament with audio, but it doesn’t auto-play – instead, you have to press a small button on a conveniently located plinth to start the recording. The audio plays through several lines of dialogue featuring the time portal guardian, Spock, and Captain Kirk. When the audio isn’t playing, the portal gateway itself is lit with a light blue/white color scheme that stands out beautifully on the Geek Tree.
