ccording to the gospel of Tony Alleyne, the best way to get through dark times is to simply build your way out. After losing his job and going through a divorce, the now 57-year-old Alleyne of Leicestershire, England spent nine years transforming his home into an exact replica of the interior of "Star Trek's" Enterprise spaceship.
"It was an accidental sort of therapy," Tony says. "Back in the early 90s, I had no wife, no job and was depressed, staring down two roads. One road was to end it all and the other was to occupy myself. A friend of mine found a technical manual that people who worked on "Star Trek" used to build props. I told him, 'We'll have a go at building this.'"
You really have to see it to believe it....
