A rare, ultramodern home featured in the classic TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation is ready for its next owner.

Located on a two-acre lot along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California, is a one-of-a-kind residence designed by architect Ellis David Gelman. The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom estate features dramatic angles, circular and triangular windows, and astounding ocean vistas—but what makes it truly unique is its TV debut as the main location for an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In the 1989 episode, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (played by multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Patrick Stewart) and his Starship Enterprise crew land on an apparently deserted planet.
