The New York Times does a story on people who build replicas of Captain Kirk's command chair from the Enterprise to go into their living rooms.
Um. I guess it makes a good conversation piece for a couple of months, but then what? It's just this weird chair that's…. there. Now, if I was this guy's wife (yes, he's married), and I walked into the room and he was sitting there like that, my eyes would never stop rolling. "Uh, Captain," I would say in a tone dripping with sarcasm, "Have you taken out the trash? And please don't leave your socks on the bedroom floor."
I suspect that most Kirk wannabes end up having their chair relegated to the basement. Like this guy, whose wife threatened divorce if he displayed it in the living room:
Of course, this is even odder, in its own way. "Honey, I'm going down to the basement to sit in 'the chair'. Call me when dinner's ready."
