Some Star Trek fans might be dismayed that the next Star Trek movie has fallen into the hands of Fast & Furious director Justin Lin, but you can take heart in this gingerbread USS Enterprise. 

Rather than making a gingerbread house, this USS Enterprise is the creation of Blackmarket Bakery in California, a geeky alternative to a traditional Christmas favourite.

The NCC-1701 model is supported by a beam of candy canes, resulting in a sweet floating effect. The attention to detail is sure to bring a smile to your face, so make sure you check out all the pictures of this enterprising creation.

The bakery hasn't revealed how the model was made, so you'll just have to gaze upon its deliciousness, close your eyes and imagine the soothing tones of James Tiberius Kirk whispering in your ear.
