A STAR Trek fan has boldly gone where no fan has gone before – by building a replica enterprise in his basement worth a staggering $500,000. Anthony Sforza has loved the show for as long as he can remember and starting collecting action figures in the 1980s. After amassing a huge collection he started on his most ambitious project to date in 2010 – building his own replica bridge from the iconic Enterprise in his basement. The married father of two, said: “It was very difficult at first to find the materials that they used on the show – 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.” Anthony has the full support of his wife Annette and sons Michael, 11 and Daniel, 7 who live with him above the replica enterprise in Long Island, New York.
