Oh I'm Boldly Going -- To Meet My Maker!

September 16, 2010


Star Trek urns: niche product or the new standard in ash receptacles? I'm gonna go with niche product. BURN ME UP, SCOTTY.

The $800 urns, from funeral products retailer Eternal Image, come with one of two inscriptions: "To boldly go" (pictured above) or "The voyage continues."

Details on the urns, from StarTrek.com: "Each urn features a capacity of 190 cubic inches and is constructed from a composite blend of natural minerals, an etched stainless steel faceplate and name scroll, and an image of the Enterprise printed on anodized aluminum, with the Enterprise visible through a cutout of the franchise's signature Delta logo. A personalized nameplate can be affixed above the graphic."

190 cubic inches? I dunno, I feel like that special, recently dead Star Trek fan in my life might be a little over 190 cubic ash-inches. Do you carry anything in the 300-350 inch range? No? That's cool, I can flush part of him.

Thanks to Uncle_FUJ, who just wants his ashes shot out of a cannon at a monster truck rally like a normal person.
