Beam me up, Scotty! We’re headed to Boca Raton, where a 20,000-square-foot mansion with a “Star Trek wing” has hit the market once again. This time, it’s asking just $30 million.

Tricked out by Star Trek fan and entrepreneur Marc Bell — known for buying Penthouse Magazine and Adult Friend Finder — is letting go of his starship-themed wonderland. And oh, yeah: there is a pretty sweet mansion attached.

Bell initially slapped his home on the market in 2014, asking $35 million, and now it is back with a $5 million discount, according to Curbed.

Designed by architect Randall Stofft, the villa features a full-scale Borg model and a model of the bridge from the Enterprise, which serves as a home theater. Other geeky amenities include a Call-of-Duty-themed video game room, retro arcade, 16 bathrooms, resort-style pool with waterfalls, wine room, gourmet kitchen and a full basketball court.

Bell paid just $7 million for the home in 2011.
