    Here's a fun Off Topic story for our Trekkies on this slow news Friday.

    If you are a Star Trek fan, and have a spare $1.27 million dollars lying about, you can own an impressive 6,000 square foot mansion that includes a movie theater room modeled after the Starship Enterprise. The previous owner of this Houston, TX home is selling his impressive mansion (reasons were not disclosed), and the modifications he added should be appealing to just about any true Trekkie.

    Be sure to hit up the source link for more pictures of the room and the entire house.

    [Editor's comment: This is an amazing home regardless of the secret Star Trek room!]

    I would consider buying but turns out the magnetic phase field would prevent me from re-routing the plasma conduits

    Yeah and as we all know that is notoriously disastrous for the dilithium crystals. Shipping in new ones takes a few light years.

    It looks like a combination of TOS and TNG decor. Very nice.
