A Leicestershire Star Trek fan who got into debt making his home look like the Starship Enterprise has gone bankrupt.
Tony Alleyne hopes to sell the house to clear his debts
Tony Alleyne, 52, spent nine years and £30,000 transforming his flat and used another £100,000 to launch a company which offered similar makeovers.
But the schemes were funded by loans and credit cards and he has filed for bankruptcy with debts of £166,000.
The former DJ hopes to get out of the red by selling the exclusive residence for up to £800,000.
He said: "I did not set out with the intention of selling it, I enjoy science fiction interiors.
"I set up a business, it did not work and I tried to finance it with credit cards, which was daft really."
Mr Alleyne, who is separated from his wife, said he recently filed for bankruptcy at Coventry County Court.
"I was advised that was the only way to go," he said.
When Mr Alleyne failed to sell the original version of his Starship Enterprise home for £700,000, 18 months ago, he gutted it.
He is now refitting the flat as the spaceship from the later Star Trek series, Voyager, using income support payments.
