When Gene Roddenberry wrote the line “Live long and prosper,” which debuted in the Season 2 opener of his iconic 1960’s TV series “Star Trek,” little did he know that it would be a self-fulfilling prophecy. The series may have run from only 1967 to 1969, but its legacy lives on, spawning a movie franchise and several TV spin-offs. Generations of “Trekkies” all over the world scramble to snag collectibles, and one of the best may be the house where a Season 3 episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” was filmed.
The Malibu, Calif., home is on the market for $5,695,000, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
The series, set in the 24th century, aired from 1987 to 1994. One of the stars in Season 3 was this playfully eclectic, European-style contemporary, which was where Commander William Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and a rescue party from the USS Enterprise answer a distress call coming from a seemingly deserted planet. In “The Survivors” episode, they find two people who appear to have miraculously survived a disaster that claimed the lives of the rest of the population. The house and grounds appear much like they do today, but the magic of film showed a vast wasteland surrounding the property.
Designed by futuristic architect/artist and furniture designer Ellis David Gelman, the eye-popping wedge-shaped house features circular and triangular windows, as well as dramatic angles. Sited on two acres on the Pacific Coast Highway, the four-bedroom, four-bath home features an open floor plan, including a living area with spectacular views and a high wood-clad ceiling, according to the listing. The home has a media/family room with a kitchenette, a loft, a 440-square-foot terrace with a glass railing that doesn’t disrupt the ocean view, two fireplaces, slate and bamboo flooring, a sound system, a two-car garage, built-ins, and a kitchen with a breakfast bar and stone counters. The property also offers parking for 10 vehicles, a guest house, lavender and rose gardens, and an enclosed patio for dogs. The listing does not give the home’s square footage.
