Congrats to Tony for selling his Star Trek flat!
SCI-FI fan Tony Alleyne has sold his Star Trek-themed flat for an astronomical Â£425,000 — FIVE TIMES its market value.
Enterprising Tony, 54, worked eight hours a day for two years and spent Â£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 Â£80,000.
But Tony put his up for sale on eBay a month ago with a guide price of Â£130,000.
