For $1.265 million, a new owner can enjoy the Star Trek-inspired addition to the whimsically designed mansion. Elsewhere in the home, one of four bedrooms is decked out as a medieval castle, and another has a staircase to a loft decorated with musical notes.
By the indoor pool is a staircase for beaming up to the Trekkie extravaganza. Enter through pneumatic doors with activation pads that flank a 100-plus-inch screen beneath a faux-starlit sky.
A cosmic kitchenette sits on a stage at the back of the home theater, with a snack bar and bench seating.
Sleep in space pod-style bunk beds, or work at a desk station worthy of Spock and Uhura — all with blue lighting to maximize the sci-fi experience.
A Space Age bathroom is outfitted with a heavily jetted shower and jetted tub.
The Texas company that built the space, Tiny Town Studios, specializes in playhouses, treehouses and fantasy-style pool additions, such as shipwrecks.

"I cannot write enough about Marilyn. She made my husband and my buying experience so easy and fun. She is exceptionally patient, never rushing us despite my husband and I having two totally different tastes. She works over the top to try to show us the houses that we would be interested in and always listening to our thoughts. She is such a hard worker; she even closed on my house the same week she gave birth to her adorable baby. I would recommend Marilyn to anyone looking for a new home without hesitation."
