The Trekkie Files

Home sweet home
Divorce can be a messy business as  Star Trek fan Tony Alleyne has found out - Tony spent ten years and a small fortune transforming his one-bedroom flat to look like the famous flight deck — with a computer console, flashing lights and even "transporters".

He built it himself — and says it would cost at least £100,000 to do it again from scratch.

Tony, 58, is getting a divorce from wife Georgina who owns the flat in Hinckley, Leics, and wants to sell.

Tony 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."

Georgina, 52 — who has paid the mortgage since they split in 1994 — said: "I want to sell it as conventional property." She denied that she was actually part of the Borg collective and claimed that she was acting reasonably.
