    Divorce forces man to beam out of 'Star Trek' home

    http://entertainment.msnbc.msn.com/_...star-trek-home

    When British nightclub DJ Tony Alleyne rebuilt his apartment to resemble a spaceship from "Star Trek," he couldn't have foreseen the day when he'd have to boldly go ... someplace else.

    The British tabloid The Sun reports that Alleyne's apartment, in the English town of Hinckley, is actually owned by the wife he's been separated from since 1994. Now she wants to sell, meaning he'll have to leave the space-themed home behind.

    "To say I'm gutted is an understatement. It is my life's work," Alleyne told the Sun. "I admit there were tears."

    Looks like he trusted his ex a little too much...

    UK - Spaceship flat lost as Trekkie, wife divorce

    To boldly forgo: Trekkie loses his painstakingly recreated Star Trek flat to ex-wife in divorce (Daily Mail [of course!] )
    When Star Trek obsessive Tony Alleyne was separated from his wife, he embraced the chance to turn their old flat into a recreation of the inside of the Starship Enterprise.

    But the 58-year-old's painstaking efforts may have been for nothing.

    His ex-wife wants to sell up - and she intends to offer buyers a more conventional looking home.

    What kind of money are we talking here?
    'Trekkie' Mr Alleyne said it would cost at least 100,000 rebuild the interior elsewhere, according to The Sun.

    He said: 'To say I'm gutted is an understatement. It is my life's work and it looks like it's going into a skip. I admit there were tears.'
