Sci-Fi themed pizza spot in Salem

Flying Saucer Pizza Co. in Salem takes its theme into orbit. It is funky hipster chic by way of the USS Enterprise. A life-size model of Captain Jean-Luc Picard of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” watches over customers from the host stand, while the walls are lined with photos of Klingons and E.T.

“You know the old Italian restaurants in New York, you go in, and they have the wall of all the different famous Italians that have been there? We kind of thought, this is a space-themed place, all the aliens would have to come visit,” says owner Steve Feldmann. “So they’re all autographed. Yoda’s been by, Chewbacca’s been there, a bunch of the ‘Star Trek’ aliens, and, of course, Richard Nixon was an alien so he popped by and signed one.”
