The Star-Trek Apartment

Tony Alleyne is a British hardcore Star-Trek fan who decided to transform his home into the ultimate home-made Star-Trek set.

Tony began his project in 1999, after his wife left him, he aimed to give his flat the ultimate make-over and turn it into a Star-Trek bachelor pad. He finished his masterpiece in 2004, but then decided to turn it into the Voyager starship.

Now his 500 square feet apartment features voice-activated lighting, air conditioning, LED lights, but is missing a bed. A few years ago doctors advised Alleyne to sleep on the floor to cure his sciatica, so he took this opportunity to transform his bedroom into a transporter room.

After hand-crafting the decor elements himself, Tony Alleyne opened his very own design company. Unfortunately this over-the-top project also got him broke. His ex-wife, who owns the apartment, put it up for sale, but so far no one is interested. Tony says he’s happy the deal didn’t go through, as he loves living in his very own Voyager ship.

    Saw this apartment in the documentary “Trekkies.” Looks even better now than it did then. Studio quality! It should be rented out to fan-film makers. What is next?

  • Geeky Girl Posted on May 9, 2009

    FIRS–aw damn it.

    Fine then. WANT.

    I mean it. This is freaking awesome and I want to live there.

  • Uhura Posted on May 9, 2009

    This is pretty cool, if I do say so myself.

  • Helioprogenus Posted on May 9, 2009

    Before describing an apartment like this, it would be nice to avoid spelling mistakes. I don’t want to be one of those geeks who point out incidental errors, but some of these are just glaring to be fixed. Look at the following paragraph:

    His ex-wife, who owns the apartment put it up for sale, but so far no one was(is) interested. Tony says his(he’s) happy the deal didn’t go through, as hi(he) loves living in his very own Voyager ship.

  • avi Posted on May 9, 2009

    how much you wanna bet he’s still single…unless he finds a nice hot nerdy girl! Yeah baby yeah!

  • hittman627 Posted on May 9, 2009

    i want this place… AMAZING

  • Spooky Posted on May 9, 2009

    @Helioprogenus

    Believe it or not, those errors ARE incidental. I’m not trying to find excuses for my poor writing, but you guys have to understand that I do all the writing on this blog, there’s no editor to check for mistakes and, honestly, I sometimes don’t have the time to give it another read before I post.

    Oddity Central is just a hobby, I try to update as often as possible, but I also have to earn a living. Anyway, MEA CULPA, I will try to pay more attention when I post.

    Thank you for your comment

  • Jerry Posted on May 9, 2009

    I may not be the die hard fan that this guy is and I am not trying to say that his apartment is anything short of beautiful but… what is with the disco ball in the upper right hand corner of the second photo?

  • Daan Zonderland Posted on May 9, 2009

    Dear Spooky,

    You’re doin’ a great job. Never mind the occasional typo, and never mind if the spelling screws up sometimes. It’s the content that counts and that is just grade A material.
    To all of you who can’t see through that and who just want to write ‘First’ and than rant about typos: Try getting a day job, a friend, a hobby or just jump off a cliff and get a real life.
    Morons.
    And oh yeah, “Hab SoSII’ Quch!”
    Your stuff is great Spooky and I love this overview of the wonderful, over the top, total Trekkie apartment.
    Thanx very Dutch for your great posting.

  • Helioprogenus Posted on May 9, 2009

    I meant the corrections as no disrespect. I figured since this is making the rounds on Stumble, more people will have a chance to look at this article than usual, so might as well have it fixed. Believe me, I have my own blog that has its fair share of spelling and grammatical mistakes, and I do understand. Take it as constructive criticism, and live long and prosper..V..

  • Spooky Posted on May 9, 2009

    @Helioprogenus

    I’m glad you understand, and trust me, I HAVE taken your words as constructive criticism. I will try to be more careful from now on. All the best to you as well.

    @Daan Zonderland

    Thank you for the kind words Daan, really means a lot! And I don’t mind people complaining about my spelling mistakes. I just wish they all knew I don’t make them because I don’t know how to write, but because I always write in a hurry. I hope people can understand that, but it’s still (mostly) a free internet and everyone is entitled to an opinion.

  • Andrew Posted on May 9, 2009

    Wow, this is absolutely awesome. And I’m not even a fan of Star-Trek.

  • Bob Posted on May 9, 2009

    Always has to be one.

  • Admiral Curtis Posted on May 9, 2009

    To have the want, desire and ability of accomplishing something so fantastic while being a fan of science fiction so much more accomplished and happy than reality alone speaks for itself in building this dream come true. As every day and night passes, never ever forget it is one less of each of these we have to endure in getting to a reality where all of this is no longer ‘simply’ dreams of an energized mind! Peace and long life … … …

  • kattterina Posted on May 9, 2009

    I stumbled this . Holy SHEETS this is cool. I love it!! oh and I do notice that disco ball LOL! oh well, it’s still cool anyway ^_^.

  • Y'all suck Posted on May 9, 2009

    THIS GUY IS A HUGE LOSER. I hope he enjoys masturbating to klingons every night.

  • Zalpha Posted on May 9, 2009

    Ya know, I understand looking for new material like the next guy, but this story is *at least* three years old (the guy’s website hasn’t been updated since 2006) and I first heard about it before then… not exactly new material.

    Any particular reason you are opening up this can of expired rehash?

  • Bill in Detroit Posted on May 9, 2009

    Not too surprised that he’s divorced … esp. seeing as he pissed away all his money on a flat he doesn’t even own. Um … helllllllo! His ex-wife owns it … hardly what I would consider a ‘tolerant’ landlord.

  • . Posted on May 9, 2009

    GET A LIFE!!!

  • Wayne Posted on May 10, 2009

    Loser or not, i’d kill to live there!

  • Jalle Posted on May 10, 2009

    Thank you kindly for the entertaining and informative post. I don’t feel the earlier poster was complaining about the typos, but merely pointing them out to you. First impressions are lasting, and we all know you want the site to look its very best. Daan, if you think content is all that counts, you have a great deal to learn. Those who cannot or will not spell correctly seem to be most offended when unintended errors are pointed out, even when done so in a genuinely helpful manner. These are the same individuals who feel they must resort to name-calling and sneering as a way to boost their own self-esteem, or the lack thereof. Spooky, thank you kindly for the incredible amount of time and effort you’ve put into a truly fascinating site. I do apologize for the aside.

  • Spooky Posted on May 10, 2009

    @Jalle

    Thank you Jalle, I’m happy you like my site. I just wish I had the time to post more, there are so many interesting oddities out there.

  • too much time on your hands? Posted on May 10, 2009

    Wow! This guy had too much time on his hands…lol but I have to say that re-vamping your ex-wife’s apt to the point where no one wants to purchase it is flat-out brilliant! Not only does your hobby come to life but a little bit of revenge is met with no one getting shot or stabbed…very nice.

  • dr. Ink Posted on May 11, 2009

    This is one insane apartment. I like Star Trek – both the series and the movies, but I am definitely not a Trekkie. Sure it would be fun to hang out in a place like this for a day or two, but to live in it… no thank you.

    So what I would suggest to this Trekkie is to make up with his ex, who owns the apartment, and start renting it out to Trekkie’s or to film producers, like someone already suggested before me. :)

  • Drew Posted on May 11, 2009

    I’m not even a star trek fan and I want to live there

  • Lutra Posted on May 11, 2009

    This is brilliant. This guy did a fantastic job and I’d love to visit, and I don’t think I’d mind living there either. The attention to detail is wonderful. It also helps that Voyager is my favorite Trek, so I’m predisposed towards loving it.

  • Ferahtsu Posted on May 11, 2009

    Stumbled, liked. Now, I’m not a “trekkie” so when I read the article I did not know what to expect from the photos. Didn’t even expect photos for some reason… This apt. blew my mind!

  • Ryan Posted on May 11, 2009

    i wonder how this guy feels, taking a dump or jerkin his gerkin on the enterprise all day

  • Lorenzo Posted on May 11, 2009

    Hi,

    Very nice, but it looks a bit too “blue” and dark, at least i remember one of the philosophies of star trek was to depict a bright future, this was also achieved by making the ships interior bright and with plenty light (expect in red alert situations).

    So my compliments for the work you’ve done there, but add some lights :D

  • diver99 Posted on May 11, 2009

    Love it….would love to hang out here a couple of times a week.
    Well done Captain…. your dedication to the Federation is without
    peer.

  • dapperdave Posted on May 11, 2009

    Wow! Amazing. I hope his wife dies of eye herpes if she sells this masterpiece out from under him.

  • Jmat Posted on May 11, 2009

    Big Star Trek fan myself… I’d LOVE to smoke a joint in this appartment… oops pardon my spellling.

  • Grammar Police Posted on May 11, 2009

    “Unfortunately this over-the-top project also *GOT* him broke.”

    What the heck does that even mean??? :)

  • Candace Posted on May 11, 2009

    I guess its cool that he doesn’t need a bed, cuz living in a spaceship, I’m guessing this dude doesn’t get laid too often.

  • Darth Duece Posted on May 12, 2009

    I want to take a dump on this guy’s floor. What an asshat

  • Fakers Name Posted on May 12, 2009

    lol this guy is a NUTTER no wonder his poor wife left him- but i have to say- he’s got some…. imagination….

  • hobittual Posted on May 12, 2009

    I don’t like this apartment much, but you are just a twat, got to be American. Vulgar, offensive, loudmouthed, unsophisticated and would bully people to get what you want, got to be.

  • oka Yanalli Posted on May 13, 2009

    yeah, you know us Americans, we don’t put up with your BS, LOL

  • Dougler Posted on May 13, 2009

    All the emotion and petty comments aside – I think Tony has done a cracking job of re-creating the Star Trek world. If he’s not actively applying for a job doing set design in Holywood or Pinewood (or wherever they do this sort of thing) then I’d be very disappointed as he’s obviously got a natural talent for this work and is clearly a very big fan of this particular franchise.

    Tony – if you read this, get on it mate and all the very best!!! That’s one life story that would bve very inspirational and a welcome change to all the doom gloom in the world.

  • Sugarllama Posted on May 15, 2009

    Ya but why Voyager!? Its the bastard child of Star Trek.

  • Gar gar Posted on May 15, 2009

    “Tony began his project in 1999, after his wife left him,”

    EPIC FAIL

  • G Posted on May 15, 2009

    There is a lawyer in Greenville, NC with his client meeting room designed as a Star Trek room.

  • alekx Posted on May 16, 2009

    HOLY SHIT. AWESOME. I’m so jealous.

  • Enter Your Name Posted on May 16, 2009

    holy cow! look at that!

  • theo Posted on May 17, 2009

    well congrat’s, because you just became one. … nerdy typo pointer outta! .. live the life, embrace it, it’s all yours now!

  • Darth Negro Posted on May 18, 2009

    Just another day in Geek paradise ! If this place has on bed then where does the bangin of all the supermodel nerd girls thke place ? And that’s a “Space” Disco Ball !

  • KJ Posted on May 19, 2009

    I wonder what it’s like to be that old and still a virgin…

  • Bob K Posted on May 20, 2009

    Weather you’re a Trekkie or not, you have to be impressed with anyone who has a vision and follows though on it like he did. Kudos!

  • Bobby Womack Posted on May 28, 2009

    If you are understood, then you are doing your job. Spelling and grammer are rules, but they are not laws. I didn’t notice, nor have any problem, understanding the content of your sentences. Short answer, I agree with you; and people, just quit nit-picking.

  • Spooky Posted on May 28, 2009

    Thank you very much Bobby. But, to tell you the truth, the post had some serious spelling mistakes that I corrected. Happens a lot when I’m in a hurry. Anyway, as I said, I’ll try to be more careful. Stop by again, see if my grammar and spelling improve :)
