There's a secret room built by a Star Trek superfan in this Texan house

Perfect for any trekkie with a million to burn.

A STAR TREK super fan built the most authentic Trekkie paradise this side of the Alpha Quadrant in a suburb of Houston, Texas.

And now he’s selling it.

Listed for $1.27 million (€1.12m), the focal point of the 550-square-metre mansion is a cinema room decked out like the Starship Enterprise, down to the most minute detail.

“He’s always been interested in space travel, in being in the stars, and he decided that if there was no way to travel to the stars, he’d bring them here”, listing agent William Machupa said of the seller.

The outside is decidedly not Star Trek themed.


The four bedroom, four bathroom house has a huge kitchen and crisp new interiors.


As you pass the lagoon-style indoor pool, a staircase beams you right into…


A full reproduction of the USS Enterprise.


The homeowner converted the room into a replica of the famous Star Trek set.


The seller dubbed it the USS Cyrus.


The details of the replication are stunning.


It even includes pneumatic doors and a 100-plus-inch screen beneath a fake sky filled with fake stars.

Blue lighting brings the sci-fi experience home, especially in the pod-style bunk beds.


Even the bathroom, which has a Jacuzzi tub and a jetted shower, follows the theme.


The fantasy doesn’t stop at Star Trek. The master bedroom is decorated like a medieval castle.


The children’s room layout is pretty cool, too.
