Star Trek USS Enterprise home by Tony Alleyne

Star Trek USS Enterprise Home By Tony Alleyne

Mr Alleyne has spent the last ten years transforming the one-bedroom property into a sci-fi fantasy, with a computerised flight deck, flashing lights and even 'transporters'. He is devastated by the news that his ex-wife Georgina wants to sell the flat in Hinckley, Leicestershire, where he has been living by himself since their break-up.
'Trekkie' Mr Alleyne said it would cost at least £100,000 rebuild the interior elsewhere, according to The Sun. He said: 'To say I'm gutted is an understatement. It is my life's work — and it looks like it's going into a skip. I admit there were tears.'
Mrs Alleyne, 52 — who has paid the mortgage since they split in 1994 — said: 'I want to sell it as conventional property.' Her former husband started building the amazingly accurate spaceship replica after his friend gave him a magazine based on the TV show. He told the Daily Mail: 'My friend gave me a Star Trek mag and I became obsessed with having my own space ship. He laughed when I told him - I think he thought it was all a joke, but I knew I was going to achieve it one day. 'It all started as therapy after we split up,' he said. 'Building every bit from scratch really helped me to deal with the stress of it all.'
