"A Star Trek fan has filed for bankruptcy after spending almost $71,000 converting his home into the Starship Voyager.
Tony Alleyne, 52, wanted to convert his studio flat in Hinckley, Leicestershire, into an exact replica of the TV spacecraft, The Sun newspaper in London reports.
The home has moulded walls, touch-panel blue lighting, a life-size model of the shows transporter room and a command console.
The former DJ also reshaped his windows to look like portholes and set up vertical lights so he can pretend to be beamed up, just like the shows characters Captain James T Kirk and Spock.
But after flying his way through two loans and 14 credit cards in a bid to not only build his dream home, but also market the space-age renovation for other people's homes, the fan has come crashing down to earth, broke.
The Sun reports he has now filed for bankruptcy, citing debts of $392,000, and may have to sell his Starship."
