The Star Trek Apartment
You know, we all say we'd like to have our own
transporter rooms, but so few of us ever bother to make one. Interior design
genius Tony Alleyne (www.24thcid.com) owes a tremendous debt to "Star Trek: The
Next Generation," not only for inspiring his insanely wonderful apartment, but
also for generating enough mainstream acceptance of the franchise to entice non
Betazoid women through the door.
Alleyne used Vellman digital audio playback modules to provide authentic ST sound effects, plus Vossystems voice-activation gear and loads of AEI Security Systems remote controls. No word on whether he hires a flunky in a red shirt to stage spark-showered deaths at parties. Located in the neutral zone of Hincley, Leicestershire in the UK, Alleyne recently posted a stellar $1 million USD asking price for his unearthly domicile on eBay. Say, wasn't money supposed to disappear by the 24th century?
