'Star Trek'-themed home has Spock's bed (pictures)
A Canadian woman goes all out with her love of the original "Star Trek" and the Starship Enterprise. Colored brick food, anyone?
Kicking back in Spock's bed
As the birthplace of the immortal thespian William Shatner, Montreal has a strong link to "Star Trek": the Canadian city is where The Shat had his first exposure to acting before he went on to fame and fortune.
Quebec may have many "Star Trek" fans, but few are as passionate as Line Rainville. The social worker from Notre-Dame-des-Prairies, about an hour north of Montreal, has renovated her basement to look just like the Enterprise. The project has cost about $30,000.
This small basement bedroom is a re-creation of Spock's quarters, including the red curtains, homemade bedspread with metallic sheen, and the blue throw blanket.
The TV room is the focal point of Rainville's "Star Trek"-themed basement suite. Done up like the Enterprise bridge, it has the red handrails, faux ceiling skylight, widescreen TV as the bridge viewscreen, and a Spock cutout.
After a hard day's work, Enterprise crew make their way to the nearest rec room food replicator and sit down to a yummy meal of colored blocks. While seen several times in the original "Star Trek" series, the bizarre and completely unappetizing space food was never eaten.
But who knows? It might go well with this bottle of Saurian Brandy.
