This ‘Star Trek’ shuttlecraft tent concept is ideal for away missions
Designer Dave Delisle boldly goes where no camper has gone before with this concept for a tent inspired by a Federation shuttlecraft from Star Trek.
He points out that it’s not that far-fetched, or off-brand, considering that 1989’s Star Trek V: The Final Frontier opens with Kirk, Spock and McCoy camping at Yosemite National Park (Kirk nearly plummets to his death, there’s a strained round of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” and then the film goes dramatically downhill from there).
Delisle’s concept is for a two-person tent with an entrance in the back, just like the shuttlecraft from the long-running franchise. It then would be stored in a case that splits apart to form the shuttlecraft’s thrusters. All that’s missing is a Redshirt to distract any bear, mountain lion or Romulan that wanders into your campsite.
