The man who lives in the Star Trek house
Trek builder boldly goes bankrupt
A Leicestershire Star Trek fan who turned his home into the Starship Enterprise has said his work could be destroyed by the sale of the flat.
Tony Alleyne, 58, has spent 10 years and more than £30,000 transforming the Hinckley flat, but now his ex-wife, who owns the property, needs to sell up.
The apartment features a replica flightdeck with full voice recognition technology.
Mr Alleyne said the thought of living in a conventional house was "scary".
"The more I say it, the more horrible it sounds," Mr Alleyne said.
