8 Sci Fi Rooms and Homes That Are Out of This World

We already looked at The Best Star Wars Furniture Imperial Credits Can Buy, but for those who aren’t satisfied with just one geeky piece of home décor, and for those who prefer Doctor Who or Star Trek, we rounded up some of the most mind-blowingly geektastic rooms, apartments and houses you could ever hope for.

1. Star Trek Federation Vessel Apartment, Engage

This is actually a bit of a sad story, as Tony Alleyne spent ten years converting his apartment to look like a shuttle craft from Star Trek: The Next Generation. All in all, he estimated it would have cost around $140,000 in parts and labor to hire a contractor to do the work.

Unfortunately, Tony’s wife, who he separated from when he started working on the apartment, owned the property. When the couple finally filed for divorce in 2012, she decided the apartment would be worth more without the Star Trek theme, so she gutted the work done and now this marvelous tribute to one of the world’s most popular sci fi franchises is no more than a memory.

For those who aren’t sure about converting their entire home into a tribute to their favorite tribble-filled sci fi program, the basement is a great place to start.

The Canadian social worker re-created parts of the transporter room, recreation room, observation deck, Spock’s quarters, and, of course, the bridge.

Originally, the idea was to just make a home theater where Line could relax, but once she started, she soon became obsessed and couldn’t stop until the whole basement was completed.
