Majel Barrett-Roddenberry and Gene Roddenberry’s remains will be sent together into space.
Come on – that’s pretty damned romantic.
It’s like being married by a Klingon
http://www.boingboing.net/2008/08/04/unfulfilled-space-fu.html makes it sound quite romantic.
If they play “My Heart Will Go On” during the launch of the rocket, so help me God…
If it were the Buck Rogers’ theme song, it would be ok.
Pretty Damn Romantic indeed.
I’m not seeing romance as much as I’m seeing fanservice.
Really, Zenrage? Really? You know what Roddenbury did his whole life, right?
Now that Vs. System is no longer producing live bait:
Who should be shot with that?
Yeah, Dane. Really.
Could you imagine people spreading Stan Lee’s dead ashes over a 1000 spider-webs?
How about taking Isaac Asimov’s ashes and mixing them with hydraulic fluid for use in some Japanese robot?
Maybe taking Hugh Hefner’s Ashes and mixing them with polymers and making a plastic dildo out of it.
So, yeah. I don’t see anything in Roddenberry’s ashes being blasted into space as being anything beyond pure fanservice.
If those things were done by the wish of the dead person (as, for instance, Mark Gruenwald’s ashes were mixed with the ink for the first printing of the collected Squadron Supreme, per his request), I don’t see how it’s fan service. I mean, it’s not like the holders of the estate just decided to do it for the publicity.
Roddenberry wanted his ashes blasted into space; his wife wanted her ashes to be with his. It’s no different than my parents wanting their ashes spread, together, over a mountain pass.
