Emmy-winning actor and science fiction legend William Shatner plans on beaming a rather rare rock on to eBay. Shatner recently passed a kidney stone, hopes to recover it from his doctors and sell it on eBay as the ultimate piece of Star Trek memorabilia. The sad thing is some goob will pay it.

Currently starring as his emmy-winning character, Denny Crane on “Boston Legal,” Shatner is best known as the legendary Captain James T. Kirk of the starship Enterprise. Shatner hopes to pass this kidney stone to one of the many fans through eBay and donate the proceeds to charity.

The tough part will be convincing eBay to let him sell it because they have a strict rule against selling body parts. It’s unclear how small rocks passing through the body fit into this rule. Trekkers have shown a strange, otherworldly ability to buy all kinds of memorabilia. This wouldn’t the first time eBay has sold some peculiar items in the past, including tattoos, miracle sandwiches and other oddities.

It’s a fairly safe bet though that if eBay allows it, some charity will have a nice holiday gift. Some may think urethra nut or an idiot to bid on it, but one things for sure, it’ll take stones to put your name up there.
