Star Trek merchandising gone wild

Star Trek casketOkay, I understand the mock phasers and the shirts and the action figures. But when someone releases a Star Trek casket and/or urn for when you die, I have to scratch my head a little.

Admittedly, I've heard of Star Trek weddings and even known people who have attended them. I guess since Star Trek fans are getting up there in age, caskets and urns are the next step. Hell, they probably still run Star Trek-themed weddings at Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas.

The truth is that most of the original cast is getting up there in age. I cannot help but wonder if someone is going to buy one of them a casket or urn from Eternal Image.

Besides all that, the real Star Trek fans would want a Klingon funeral. That's where they scream on top of the recently deceased body then let anybody else dispose of it however they wish.

Uh...Star Trek the Experience closed last year. Epically failed humor, dude.

woulda been neater if they created a casket that mimicked the "death pod" thing they put spock in when he "regenerated" on the genesis big bang thing.(was that the second movie or third?)

Guess Who

Well if you have to die (I'm not - 'cause I don't listen to what "the man" tells me I gotta do) then the Trek coffin actually seems nice.

I wonder how much it is to FedEx this occupied coffin to planet Genesis?
