Oh Hallmark, thank you for this festive new Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ornament. It plays “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few” quote—and that gives me an idea.

I’m going to put up a second “despair” tree this year, complete with this ornament, a Weeping Angel topper and tentacles.
