0,,2007211786,00 Star Trek fan soldly goes...
Congrats to Tony for selling his Star Trek flat!

SCI-FI fan Tony Alleyne has sold his Star Trek-themed flat for an astronomical £425,000 — FIVE TIMES its market value.

Enterprising Tony, 54, worked eight hours a day for two years and spent £30,000 turning his one-bed studio into the starship Voyager’s flight deck.

Other flats in his block in Hinckley, Leics, have sold for a modest £80,000.

But Tony put his up for sale on eBay a month ago with a guide price of £130,000.
