A Chinese online game developer built his headquarters building to look like a ship from Star Trek:
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. 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.

...the company contacted U.S. media company CBS, which produces Star Trek, to secure the rights. "That was their first time dealing with issue like this and at first they thought that it was a joke," said the company in an email.

"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," said the company. It didn't disclose financial details.

If you look at the shape of the "saucer," along with the two windowed wings (nacelles) aft of it, it looks more like the Excelsior. Sure, the Enterprise-B was an Excelsior, but 1701-B had attachments on either side of the saucer....
