    I remember his house had been posted before here at the BBS, here it is: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=219421

    Just makes me wonder, who is willing to a) pay that much and b) move in. After all, the still current owner has imprinted his taste and preferences on the estate, so I have a hard time imagining someone else just taking it as it is.

    If I were to have that much money, I would have rather bought an architectural and Hollywood trademark like the Ennis House.

    Or the Albino's hideout from that DS9 episode, the Millard House. ;)

    That room with the pool tables is foul looking.

    Yikes. I wouldn't mind all the Star Trek decor but I couldn't live with those color schemes.

    Remind me to never post something like that again. Can't believe all the negativity. The guys rich enough to do what ever he wants and doesn't care if anyone else likes it. I mistakenly thought people on this board would appreciate his eccentric outlook on life.

    Theater was cool, the rest was tackier than Las Vegas.

    I think it is weird that there is a borg drone regenerating in the bar. Who would want to drink next to that?

    Maybe the owner didn't want his guests to loot his bar, thus he put the Borg there to convey the message "be careful what you drink, you might be assimiliated" :lol:

    Or as a friendly caution to those he might be serving that his skills as a drink mixer are, uh, somewhat questionable.

    I thought of a way to make this house work. Decorated by a Ferengi!

    So like it's REALLY REALLY Trek.

    The guy who had the small apartment in England done in all Trek seemed more...idk...genuine. With his limited space and means, his was a practice in eccentrisim. This one just seems tacky and having more money than one knows what to do with.

    I could never live there, never liked the colours of TNG or the futuristic TMP style furniture. I would prefer the industrial NX-01. Only with better couches. Or, some couches :lol:
