    If you're a game developer and a Trekkie, you might want to apply for NetDragon Websoft.

    Liu Dejian, NetDragon's founder and a self-described Trekkie, built his company's China headquarters in shape of "Star Trek's" USS Enterprise spaceship.

    The company's building is six stories high and it about 850 feet long and 300 feet wide. Dejin reportedly invested $100 million to complete the project back in October. The 43-year-old is known as one of the wealthiest men in China.

    The online gaming company had to ask CBS for permission before stating construction.

    "That was their first time dealing with [an] issue like this and at first they though that it was a joke," NetDragon told The Wall Street Journal. "They realized somebody in China actually did want to work out a building modeled on the USS Enterprise only after we sent the relevant legal documents."

    The USS Enterprise building reportedly also has a life-size replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton.
