We’ve got star trek dating and weddings. So why no Star Trek funerals?

Casket and Urn maker Eternal Image has licensed the right to use Star Trek images on its funeral products.

“These licensed-image Star Trek products offer true fans a unique expression of their commitment to the franchise. For many years fans have asked for these types of products – or made their own – and we believe the Star Trek audience will embrace the idea which will create a very strong demand,” Clint Mytych, CEO Eternal Image said in a statement.

The actual casket haven’t yet been produced though I suspect they’ll be much like the major league baseball ones they already have.

While the idea of a Star Trek casket is kinda neat and freaky at the same time – the only time you ever see caskets on Star Trek (the show) is when they’re being shot out into space.

We’ve all seen the crazy news stories where someone has seen the face of the virgin mary or jesus in a piece of toast and tried to sell it on eBay.

Apparently one dude thinks his Orea cookie looks like an Imperial TIE fighter from Star Wars.

This braniac has started the bidding at $2.97 for cookie (normally you’d buy a whole pack for that price). It’s unclear as to whether or not the imperial march or the TIE fighter ‘wwhooooosh’ will echo in your ears if you actually take a bite of this blessed Oreo.

[oh and hey don’t all Oreo cookies look like this? Now if he found an Oreo that looked like an AT-AT Walker or Yoda…that would be something…]

NASA has just posted a video titled ‘Search for Spocks Home’ on the JPL site.

According to Star Trek canon Vulcan is located orbitting the star we know as 40 Eridani A.

Guess what?

It’s real and NASA’s got a plan to find out what’s out there.

But is it logical?

and will life, Live Long & Prosper there?
