Star Trek has a great following. But there are various degrees or levels of these fans. There are some Star Trek fanatics out there who probably have their whole home decor planned according to the space odyssey. So for them I have something that will ensure their association with the Star Trek in their afterlife as well! There is this new line of Star Trek cremation urns out in the market, which you can buy for your ashes.
Sounds a bit morbid to me but hey, people have different ways of looking at life, or in this case, death. Eternal Image, is a manufacturer of brand-name memorial products, and has brought out two cube-shaped, “Trek”-themed urns with separate themes: “To Boldly Go” and “The Voyage Continues.” Talking about why their company came up with this idea, Eternal Image CEO and President Clint Mytych said, “We hope that it makes the process of picking out funeral products a little bit easier — it’s already a painful process to go through. Nothing seems to come close to ‘Star Trek’ in terms of staying power and worldwide appeal.”
Each urn has an image of the Starship Enterprise and is made of a composite of minerals and metals. The retail price of the urn is $799 and you can get them from October 1 and can be pre-ordered now.
