Down & out Trekkie wins sweet revenge.

In 1998 Tony Alleyne began '24th Century interior design'. Two years ago, he went through a divorce and spent the next 2 years pouring all his saving converting his apartment into a replica of the interior of StarTrek's Enterprise.
A few months ago, teetering on bankruptcy, he was forced to put up his beloved apartment for sale. He placed an ad on EBay, and soon a bidding war began. Last week it sold for $839,000, 3 times asking price.

He now has the extra capital to attract clients; check out his web site and place your order!

One of those rare instances where the man gets the last word...

Maybe men with a bent towards SF, StarTrek and modeling have the inside track? Did you check out the bio on this guy? He was a DJ for years...

Hmmm...

Sawsee said...

Not to be too nosey but did you just deposit a cheque for $839,000 into your bank account?

That's a lot of lights and plastic.

Hey JDH! Yes, it's not a room for everyone!

I would want some/all the displays to work!

I agree, JDH!

Sawsee -
Forget the displays, I want the transporter to work!

Maybe the phasers...

Sawsee said...

Hey GB!

Yes, the transporter would be pretty cool, and as I am such a gentleman, I'll let you go first...

I wonder if you need a shot of Jim Beam first?

Actually, if you installed a "bar" room, labelling it "Transporter control" might be appropriate!
