For those of you that are stout enough to survive the harshness of the elements and go camping. Why not put a retro spin to your tent of choice? In fact make it a Star Trek Shuttlecraft tent!
Now I will certainly be the first to admit that my Star Trek knowledge isn’t all-encompassing. While I am more familiar with the original Star Trek series. I did however retain some info thanks to those long and lonely nights of my youth. For example the Star Trek Shuttlecraft tent appears to be based on the Mark 6 version. Which was also a modified version of the updated Galileo shuttles.
Moreover you can see that very type of shuttlecraft in action in 1989’s The Final Frontier!
In addition, here is a fun fact. I actually am one of the outcasts that really likes The Final Frontier. Now of course that you’ve learned I obviously have no taste in film. I think it best to get to the point of this article, the Star Trek Shuttlecraft tent.
The sad news is you cannot purchase this. It is in fact the brainchild of Dave Delisle. From his site he shares that originally this design was intended for a bunk bed. When you get a moment go vist his Geeky Ideas website. Which besides the tent also presents all manner of creative inventions. Case in point this Stanley Cup playoff bracket, inspired of course by 1984’s The Karate Kid.
Furthermore, David’s Star Trek Shuttlecraft Tent could be rolled up and carried in it’s thrusters!
So while you crafty do-it-yourselfer’s figure out how to make this a reality. I offer you up this YouTube video from TrekWorks featuring the restoration of the original Galileo shuttle.
