If you were to simply drive up to the headquarters of Chinese gaming and mobile company Netdragon Websoft, you’d see a very nice office building with some interesting architectural quirks, but you might not see much more.
Look at the same building from the air, though, and you get what you see in the photo above. That’s right, the entire building is a replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise (Enterprise E, from the looks of it).
It seems NetDragon chairman Liu DeJian is a massive, massive Star Trek fan, and while he may not be the biggest Trekkie in the world, he is the only one who took the time to officially license the rights to build an Enterprise replica from CBS. He’s also quite likely the only Trekkie willing to part with $160 million to complete the project.
We can only hope that one day soon DeJian decides to build an annex in the shape of a Klingon Bird of Prey, complete with cloaking device.
Or maybe he already has.
