A Star Trek coffee table for 'Enterprising' couch potatoes

$3,100 Etsy item boldly goes where no woodworker has gone before.

Who would have guessed that worm hole ends in your living room? Barry Shields

Woodworker Barry Shields' impressive Star Trek coffee table creation proves yet again that Trekkies are nothing if not, uh... Enterprising. Sorry.

Terrible puns aside, there's no need to apologize for this one-of-a-kind living room conversation piece. It took two attempts for Shields to get it just the way he wanted, with the glass cut in such a way to make the ship appear to be in motion.

You'll find it for sale on Etsy for $3,100--a real deal when you consider how many galaxies this genuine starship has visited and how deliciously geeky it would be to shout "Engage!" just before cracking the pop-top on the can of brew sitting on its glass surface and kicking back to chill out to a few nostalgic hours of Next Generation episodes.
