And finally… Wealthy Chinese businessman builds office to look like something from Star Trek

An eccentric Chinese businessman has paid tribute to his favourite sci-fi TV show by building an office block resembling the Star Trek Enterprise.

“Uber-Trekkie” Liu Dejian, who is China’s 320th wealthiest man, commissioned the $160 million structure and even got official licensing from CBS to allow him to use the starship’s likeness. Even the doors are styled after the iconic automatic doors on the Enterprise.

Now new drone footage has been released showing off the Star Trek-themed building.

Lucky employees of Liu Dejian’s NetDragon Websoft company spend their days in this building, complete with super-geeky life-size T Rex statue and slides going from floor to floor instead of stairs.
