Ultimate Star Trek Bachelor Pad (13 pics)


After his wife left him, Tony Alleyne set out to create the ultimate bachelor pad, painstakingly turning his flat in Hinckley, Leicestershire into a Star Trek set.

Mr Alleyne hand-crafted all the furnishings himself, cutting timber and plexigas to create the futuristic look. He started the project in 1999 and completed it in 2004, but then decided to give the flat a Star Trek: Voyager make-over. “I have always considered that of all the Starfleet ships, Voyager is, in terms of interior, the luxury liner of the galaxy,” he says.
The 500-square-foot apartment features voice-activated lighting, LED lighting, running lights, air-conditioning – but no bed. A few years ago Mr Alleyne suffered from sciatica and was advised by his GP to sleep on the floor. “It cured the sciatica and gave me the opportunity to convert the bed area into the Transporter area,” he says. “Bed space is overrated”
