‘Star Trek' Ultrafan Engaged in Child Porn

Posted:

Anthony Alleyne appeared in NOTW in 2003 for turning his Hinckley, England, home into a replica of the starship Enterprise's command center from "Star Trek" (including transporter control, warp core drive, infinity mirror, etc.). When he later tried to sell it, he learned that, somehow, potential buyers failed to value the house as much as Alleyne imagined. In September 2013, Alleyne was back in the news as Leicester Crown Court sentenced him to 34 months in prison for viewing child pornography — a diversion he blamed on years of depression following marital difficulties and, of course, the brutal real estate market.
