Ornament-a-Day 2019: Naboo Starfighter

I’m kicking off the Ornament-a-Day 2019 with 1999’s Naboo Starfighter. Taken from Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace, the Naboo Starfighter is an unpowered ornament that still manages to shine thanks to its highly reflective silver underbelly and engine pods. The silver sheen is offset by the Naboo fighter’s yellow paint job.

It’s a distinctive ornament that serves an important role within the Geek Tree: Light reflection. The silver highlights do a great job of catching and reflecting light from the Geek Tree’s white and color LED lights. The Geek Tree can be overwhelmed by its unilluminated components; ornaments like the Naboo Starfighter (and similar ones, like the golden U.S.S. Enterprise 1701 and C-3PO) help to brighten it.
