MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - Nikolas Carr, 9, is big brother and protector to three very special little sisters. But, no offense to the girls, sometimes a guy's just gotta get away. He took us on a tour his "space" in the Extreme home.

Nikolas says when he saw his outer space-theme room for the first time, he was speechless.

His doors open and close automatically, sealing the "space pod." Nikolas's imagination knows no limits.

"I like to get out my Legos and build with them," he shared.

The Extreme team spared no expense on "out-of-this-world whimsy" making this room just perfect. Every spaceship needs a control panel, and his has just that.

And, what's a galactic voyage without the galaxy? At night stars light up the sky!

Nikolas said he actually had his own room in the Carr family's old house. But, he still had to share it with some of his sister's things. Thanks to the Extreme team, there is nothing pink in his room, now.

Sliding doors and command centers aside, Nikolas has a favorite part.

"I have a bed with no springs in it,"he said.

That certainly makes life more comfortable; something big brother Nikolas likes about every other room in his family's new home.

"There's fresher air for my dad...I have more space...and wider halls for Ryanne to get through with her wheelchair if she needs it...I think they did a good job," he said.

It will be light years before you get the young man out of his new room. It's the coolest room in the house.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
