In a move that can only be described as the ultimate display of fandom, a Chinese company has built its headquarters in the spitting image of Star Trek‘s beloved Enterprise.

According to the Wall Street Journal, gaming company NetDragon Websoft’s founder, Liu Dejian, is apparently a huge Star Trek fan.

“With a total investment of 600 million yuan ($97 million), the building was inspired by the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E, which appeared in three Star Trek movies in the late 1990s and early 2000s,” WSJ reports. “It has landed in the coastal city of Changle in China’s southeast Fujian province, where the company’s headquarters is based. Construction started in late October of 2010 and finished in May of 2014.”

NetDragon secured the rights to build it via CBS, which at first thought the request was a joke. The six-story Enterprise is 260 meters long and 100 meters wide.

Also inside the Enterprise, according to WSJ? A life-size T Rex replica. You know, just because they can.
