Get A Life

TonyalleyneA guy in England converted his studio apartment into a replica of Star Trek’s Voyager

The flat now has moulded walls, touch-panel blue lighting and a life-size model of the show’s transporter room.   There’s a command console, reshaped windows to look like portholes and set up vertical lights so he can pretend to be “beamed up”.

It cost him £20,000, which he took out on credit cards.

His hope was to start a business catering to other Trekkies seeking to renovate their homes in a simlar way.  He took out two huge loans and ran up debts of over £100,000 on 14 credit cards marketing his idea and paying for the merchandise.

His wife left him after he replaced their fridge with a “warp coil”.

Imagine my surprise.
