$1/2 Mil Trek Mancave
New York Trekkie Anthony Sforza has transformed his basement into a Star Trek wonderland. The 48 year-old married father says it took him three years and 1,500 man hours to turn his basement into a replica of a Star Trek set and fill it with memorabilia and collectibles valued at over $500,000. His ‘bridge’ viewing room is modeled on the USS Enterprise NX-01. He started with an original set piece bought from auction and matched the exact paint and materials.

Florida Mansion With Enterprise D Bridge Replica On The Market – Just $35 Mil
While Sforza’s Star Trek basement is impressive, it may be eclipsed by the Trekified rooms in a 27,000 square foot mansion in Boca Raton, Florida, which went on the market in May. Venture capitalist (and Star Trek fan) Mark Bell is moving to Miami and has put his Boca mansion up for sale for a mere $35 million. In addition to the full-sized basketball court and 1,500-bottle wine cellar, the home also features a replica of the USS Enterprise D bridge and two other Star Trek-inspired rooms, all filled with Star Trek and sci-fi memorabelia. Florida’s WPTV took a tour of the mansion, watch the report below.
