A Star Trek fan has turned his basement into a USS Enterprise-inspired man-cave.

Anthony Sforza has $500,000 worth of Star Trek costumes and props in his collection.

Sforza, a lifelong Trek fan, began his collection in the 1980s when he started collecting action figures. In 2010, he decided to build his own replica bridge in his own basement in Long Island, New York.

“It was very difficult at first to find the materials that they used on the show,” he said. “I tried to call but getting an answer was impossible. But I was able to purchase a piece of the original set which I pulled apart to find out the exact paint and materials that were used and that’s how I created this basement.”

Sforza, who is married with two sons, has the full support of his wife and family in his endeavor.

    Collecting memorabilia on this scale doesn’t automatically turn one’s basement into a man-cave; this is just hoarding.

    And don’t kid yourself, the wife at the end of the video looks none too pleased.

    Could be worse I guess, but…sorry, this just seems…sad.

    It’s his money and his family… but I’m a little disturbed by this piece. They seem to have a nice but modest home — not like they’re millionaires or anything. It makes you wonder how much of the family resource goes into this little Trek fetish of his. Is he saving for his kids’ college education? For his retirement? What happens if that $500,000 investment in Trek props ends up being a big bust? Does he have sufficient insurance on it, in case of theft or fire or flood?

    Worrying about all that shit down there would keep me up at night.
