Are you a Trekkie with a few mil to burn? Well, here's the opportunity of a lifetime: For $10.5 million, you can own this Australian home designed by a lifelong "Star Trek" fan -- using the Starship Enterprise as his inspiration.

Owner Peter Chedid told The Wall Street Journal that he has been a fan of the show since he was a child. He said he wanted to create a living space that was also a work of art. Though the house doesn't travel at warp speed, the modern design's layout does create a feeling of "endless open space," Chedid said.

The home has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and an underground five-car garage. And in true Trekkie fashion, the home features an entertainment room with a 120-inch projector screen and custom-made, feather-filled seating for up to 10 people. The walls of the room are airbrushed with a mural of an image taken from the Hubble telescope.

To take advantage of being on earth, the backyard has a "resort-style" 40-foot infinity edge swimming pool, providing spectacular views of a surrounding national park.

It's very nice but it doesn't scream 'star trek' at me..

I expected something more akin to this:

Agreed. I'm not really seeing the Star Trek inspiration here. It is really sleek though.

He took the inspiration from the Enterprise. It is not designed to look like the Enterprise tho I see a little hit of the Enterprise in the design. The curves in the house kind of look like the saucer section.

For $10.5 million I'd have my own custom-built house.
