Star Trek - The Funeral Frontier
 
When heading out to that final frontier, some 'Star Trek' fans choose 'Star Trek'-themed caskets and urns as their eternal resting place. <p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://inventorspot.com">Inventor Spot</A>, Eternal Image, designer of funeral products such as caskets and urns, has come up with a unique approach, designing their products to appeal to hobby and religious interests of their clientele.<p>The first <i>Star Trek</i> themed urns and caskets have been designed and will soon go on sale. An urn, shown <A class="link" HREF="http://www.eternalimage.net/st_page.html">here</A>, is designed to symbolize the 24th century styling of Starfleet and the Federation of Planets. A casket seen <A class="link" HREF="http://www.eternalimage.net/st_page.html">here</A> was inspired by <i>Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan</i>, with the casket looking like one of the photon torpedoes seen in that movie.<p>The company expects to branch out into licensed monuments and vaults next year. In addition to <i>Star Trek</i> themes, they offer final resting places themed to Major League baseball, Precious Moments and a Vatican Library collection.<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://inventorspot.com/articles/die_star_trek_urns_and_baseball_caskets_11935">her e</A>.

I had no idea an urn would cost $700.

Well we have the torpedo casings - now all I need is a torpedo launcher, Planet Genesis, and a starship to take me there and I'll be immortal.

*Back to my devious planning*

Funny that the (rather pricey) urn resembles the Ferengi symbol...
