Star Trek Starship Voyager Apartment (Hinckley, Leicestershire, United Kingdom)

Cost: $175,000

You're not a true Trekkie until you've gone bankrupt transforming your apartment into the Starship Voyager.

Tony Alleyne started transforming his living quarters after his wife left him. He started with the refrigerator, and didn't stop until there was a command console. The apartment features touch-panel blue lighting, molded walls, and a transporter room with porthole windows and vertical lights (to give the illusion of being "beamed up").

Unfortunately, such Star Trek awesomeness does not come cheap: Alleyne maxed out 14 credit cards, accumulating over $175,000 in debt. The initial plan was to sell the apartment on eBay for $2 million, but there were no takers.

Alleyne now runs an interior-design business, 24th Century Interior Design, for other dedicated Trekkies who want a touch of space in their homes.
