PICTURES FROM TONY'S FLAT

Tony Alleyne, a Star Trek buff and interior designer from Hinckley, was bored with his flat in so decided to give it a futuristic look.

However, rather than stopping at chrome hob and sink unit, Tony transformed his home into an exact replica of the Starship Enterprise.

The flat features a fully-functional transporter room, a futuristic kitchen and bathroom, voice activated lighting system and all mod cons.

Tony has spent over a year transforming his flat.

Tony, who has posted the flat on the internet for £2 million, says he has been inundated with requests from Star Trek fans to look around his home.

"I did not want the reaction when you walked in that this was an apartment with a Star Trek theme, I wanted to the feeling you were not in the 21st Century," says Tony.

Tony says, although he is proud of his flat and the years of work it has taken to transform, he cannot handle all the requests he receives from Trekkies.

"I can't really have a lot of people coming through here as it is such a small apartment. The next best thing is for them to see the interior.

"I am a Star Trek fan myself, but more of a fan of the interior. I can say that even after three-and-a-half years of living in this environment, it is still exciting," adds Tony.
