The first episode of 'Star Trek' was broadcast on 08 September 1966 on the American television channel, NBC.
Since then it's become an enormous franchise, spawning feature films, spin-off series, magazines, books, songs, toys and of course, many famous phrases.
BBC Radio Leicester's Bridget Blair went to visit Tony Alleyne from Hinckley who is probably the county's biggest Star Trek fan…
Tony has loved science fiction since he was very young, but not many fans would go to the lengths that he has to incorporate it into his everyday life.
His one-bedroom flat has been completely made over to look like one of the spaceships featured in 'Star Trek', the Voyager, including transporter pads (to beam people up) instead of a bed and blacked out windows to create the feeling of flying through deepest space.

Even his toilet has been converted to fit in with the 'Star Trek' theme. It faces a giant panel that depicts the workings of USS Voyager like a 24th century computer.
There has been a lot of interest in his flat, and one of the stars of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation', Denise Crosby, has even visited him.
He has also met Patrick Stewart, who played the captain of the USS Voyager, Jean-Luc Picard.
Tony says that if he left his flat he would probably decorate his next home in the same way, and continue to boldly go where no one has gone before…
