An urn was a type of large vase, employed for decorative or funerary purposes.

In 2269, James T. Kirk, Carver, and Leonard McCoy hid from the female inhabitants of the second planet of the Taurean system in a large urn. This backfired when rain began to fall, nearly resulting in their death by drowning. Fortunately, the all-female landing party managed to rescue them by shattering the urn with a phaser blast on setting one. (TAS: "The Lorelei Signal")
