Star Trek Funeral Answered

Go out in (some kind of) style in a Star Trek casket / coffin, or have your dust gather dust in a Star Trek urn

Should have been out already, but not yet (via Gadgets for God at Ship of Fools)

L

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky, planet earth is blue and there's nothing I can Doohan

 Listening to David Bowie - Scary Monsters, as I read this, I'm gonna have that coffin :) I'm sure it's only about £350, Think it'll cost a bit more to shoot it into space though.

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky

Where do I know this lyric from? I suspect it's one of those ones that has been copied all over the place (like "hotel, motel, holiday inn").

The urn is pretty cool, but I'm not sure about the coffin given it's unlikely to be actually blasted into space with me in it.

Huh. While the coffin looks okay, it reminds me of a "red-shirt". So I wouldn't want it. The urn, however, I wouldn't mind having as a simple art piece! That looks cool! Now....if only they could do that for the StarGate....

Actually, in one SG ep they DID a sort of cremation! They had the body lying on a structure raised up so when the "backwards flush" occurred, the body was in the way so it was vaporized. No fuss, no muss.

Wouldn't it be easier to just convert the matter into energy using whatever magical process the replicators used? You'd have the ethical issue of whatever comes out of the replicator technically being derived from your crewmembers' flesh, and thus cannibalistic to eat, but no one has issues eating food that is partially nourished by nutrients released into groundwater by decaying cadavers on Earth...

I put way too much thought into that, didn't I?

hahahahahaha!  Well, too much thought is sometimes better than not enough...sometimes...*lol*

Since we now bury our dead (for the most part) in cemetaries, there aren't too many grazers used in cemetary upkeep, thus, not a whole lot of our food is actually nurished by nutrients/groundwater/decaying cadavers. Besides, that's a lot of formaldyhide (sp)...  But other things live and die, so the cycle is constantly renewed with or without human involvement.

Replicator technology?  Probably better than cloning...??? *bg*

Meh... Getting your a**'s ashes shot out of a gun isn't what I was looking for. I was thinking more along the lines of this:

It seems as though the ashes were never meant to be sent into orbit. The payload section where the ashes were carried was designed to fall back to earth and be recovered. But you're right... what's the point of sending your ashes to the edge of space, then parachuting back to earth? Lame.

Not watching many is entirely different from not ever watching a single second of it.

Interesting... But considering most trekies have a absolute fear of pain and exciting things, I'm guessing we won't need thesee for another 30 years.

Yes, but it's all shiny and black 'n' red and it's got logo's on it. Someone is going to want to go out in one of these?
Looks like it might be good for sleeping in (becava)
