Mashable reports that NetDragon chairman Liu DeJian is such an “uberTrekkie” (uberTrekker?) that he laid a fat wad of cash ($160 million) to have the building constructed in the ship’s likeness after making a deal with CBS, which, along with Paramount, owns Trek’s licensing rights. The slick new digs for NetDragon were constructed between 2008 and 2014.

A full video of the building also appears on YouTube:
