I’ll admit, I was skeptical of the Golden Enterprise NCC-1701 when I got it. The 50th-anniversary ornament features the original Enterprise (no stinking A, no stinking B, no stinking C, no stinking D) … with a gold finish.
On the one hand, it’s undeniably garish and gaudy. On the other hand … it’s a freaking golden Enterprise! Like C-3PO, it complements the Geek Tree by reflecting the surrounding Christmas lights. It’s a subtle thing, but it makes the entire ornament more than just another Enterprise ornament and a worthy addition to Ornament-a-Day.
