Rumors that National Security Agency director Gen. Keith Alexander commissioned an Information Dominance Center fashioned after the Starship Enterprise were recently reported by Foreign Policy.

The building was reportedly created by a Hollywood set designer "to mimic the bridge of the Starship Enterprise from 'Star Trek,' complete with chrome panels, computer stations, a huge TV monitor on the forward wall, and doors that made a 'whoosh' sound when they slid open and closed."

According to Foreign Poilcy, a retired officer was quoted saying that, "Everybody wanted to sit in the chair at least once to pretend he was Jean-Luc Picard."

The Washington Post has since clarified that Alexander was not the one to commission the building as it was built before it took the job.
