‘Star Trek’ Fans Put Kirk’s Command Chair in Their Homes: This is the new hotness for Star Trek fans.

[…] lately fans like Mr. Veazie have been building or buying more sophisticated versions of the command module from which James T. Kirk, played by William Shatner, ordered “Ahead, warp factor six.” Moreover, they are making them the centerpiece of their homes, thus conquering what is for them a final frontier of domestic decor.
