Star Flat

 

Updated : May 18, 2009


As a much ridiculed fan of such films as The Notebook and Love Actually, VeryHappyPig has sympathy for film fanatics.

VHP knows what it is like to have your film taste laughed at and as a direct result we try not to lambaste or judge film fanatics. However, we did have to bite our tongue after reading VeryHappyPig’s latest entry!

A Star Trek fan has transformed his entire flat into a replica of the programme's starship.

Tony Alleyne has spent eight years recreating scenes from the cult sci-fi show at his studio apartment in Hinckley, Leicestershire, reports the Daily Telegraph.

What started as a therapeutic hobby for the 56-year-old devotee, following a divorce, has led him to deck the whole property out as the Star Trek Voyager.

A life-size copy of the space ship's command console forms the centrepiece of the one-bed flat, which controls the lights and sound effects.

Every morning, a voice-activated computer system turns on fluorescent tubes that illuminate bleeping panels and a replica of the "beam me up" transporter.

Even the doorbell has been customised to play a sample of Patrick Stewart in his role as captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Mr Alleyne said: "Building this has been like a dream. I had a vision and I am really amazed at what I have managed to achieve with just hard work.

"It all started as therapy after I split with my wife - building every bit from scratch really helped me to deal with the stress of it all. My whole life over the last few years has gone into this, I have given up absolutely everything.

"Some people might think I'm a bit of a sad individual but I'm not. I'm just really into Star Trek - it's really my only vice in life."

Mr Alleyne built the impressive spectacle on a shoestring budget of around £4,000 after splitting from his wife Georgina, 50, who still owns the flat.
