With the advent of a new Star Trek movie a funeral company will be offering you a Dr Spock Casket. Eternal Image is the one offering the casket and if you prefer cremation there are star trek urns available. A new Star trek movie is several months away. It is also true that these items will not help you lower your funeral costs.
Technically the casket is a “Torpedo Tube“ similar to the one that was used in the end of a Star Trek Movie.
From Wired Magazine:
“Soon, you can be buried in a full-size recreation of the torpedo tube (above) used to launch Spock’s corpse to the Genesis Planet at the end of Wrath of Khan.”
“trek monuments and burial vaults are also coming. The entire collection doesn’t arrive until later this year, and no prices are listed yet.”
A recent agreement with Wilbert Vault is making Trek vaults available along with more personal options.
Eternal Image has a line of many unique products including Major League Baseball caskets and urns.
