Man goes broke over Star Trek home

`A Star Trek fan has gone bankrupt after spending 12,000 turning his home into the Starship Voyager.

Tony Alleyne’s flat in Hinckley, Leics, has moulded walls, touch-panel blue lighting and a life-size model of the show’s transporter room. [..]

He took out two huge loans and ran up debts of over 100,000 on 14 credit cards marketing his idea and paying for the merchandise and has filed for bankruptcy.

Tony, who split from his wife Georgina after he replaced their fridge with a “warp coil” said: “I was convinced Trekkies all over the world would want a house like mine and pay me to do it.’
