‘Star Trek’-inspired mansion for sale for $35 million

BOCA RATON, Fla. — A Boca Raton mansion, with a “Star Trek”-themed room complete with a replica of the the Starship Enterprise bridge, is now on the market for $35 million.

The home, owned by venture capitalist Marc Bell, also has a 1,500-bottle wine cellar, full-size basketball court and a kitchen and dining room big enough to feed the Starfleet.

“(Bell) was so fascinated by the show … he bought uniforms and badges and phasers and everything. He wanted to create it as his own home,” said Adzem-Douglas of Elliman Real Estate.

Bell bought the original ears that actor Leonard Nimoy wore as Mr. Spock in the series and also has a model of the original Enterprise. But the home has more Sci-Fi memorabilia than just “Star Trek”.

Inside the mansion is “Robbie The Robot” from the 1956 thriller “Forbidden Planet” and an arcade filled with old sci-fi favorites.

“He ended up getting from different auction houses all the different memorabilia for this property,” said Adzem-Douglas.

But Bell is now moving to Miami and putting the house on the market with a hefty price tag.

    What a few tweaks, here and there, can do to enhance the value of some beat-up old piece of real estate… eh? (As William would say…!)
