"Are you out of your Vulcan mind?!"

Different people handle grief differently. When Tony Alleyne's wife left him, he decided to embark on a renovation project to keep his mind off his troubles. Many months, 14 credit cards, £100,000 and a bankruptcy later, his apartment was indeed transformed...

…into the Starship Voyager.

Tony, Tony! If you thought the renovation would bring back the women, you may want to reconsider. I mean, come on! If you want to reel in the chicks, you can’t turn your English flat into the Starship Voyager!

Everyone knows that for that you’d need to turn it into the Starship Enterprise.

Gotta say this for him, though. The apartment looks fantastic. He replaced his refrigerator with a warp coil, the walls with moulded bulkheads, touch-panel blue lighting, portholes for windows, a command console, and a life-size model of the transporter room with vertical lights to give the illusion of being beamed up.

And my wife thought I was obsessed with Star Trek.

Honey...honey, wait, where are you going? Leave the credit cards, won't you?

I have named my bike the Millenium Falcon.

My red truck, however, I have merely named Clifford.

Not sure which was further out there--the Star Trek guy or the Times article. ;-)
