Star Trek Shuttlecraft Tent

Star Trek Tent by Dave Delisle

Spring is here, so I thought it would be fun to make a geeky tent design that would be perfect for all of your away missions: I present a tent design based on the shuttlecraft from Star Trek. It’s not such a far-fetched idea; Star Trek V began with Kirk, Spock, and McCoy camping in the great outdoors.

Star Trek tent by Dave Delisle

This is a 2-man tent design that features an entrance at the back (just like the actual shuttlecraft). The tent stores in a carrying case that splits apart to become the thrusters.


This started as a bunk bed design several months back, but I didn’t want to keep posting bed designs at the time, so I shelved it. Glad I could do something different for the shuttlecraft here.

    • I would very much like this tent, then I will boldly go…to a camp ground or even my backyard and enjoy not only the earth but the stars as well. Make it sew.

  2. Omg just take my money already. I must have this

  3. Where’s the “Shut Up and Take My Money” button?


  5. Send me the forms to order some asap

  6. I need this in my life. Can we Kickstart this, or something??Please?

  7. Robert Piazza

    I want it……

  8. How do I get one of these????

  9. Holy crap that’s awesome.

  10. Are there plans? Can you sell a version of it without the ST logo to avoid any infringement? There’s gotta be a way!

  11. Peter Van Goekom

    This is the ONLY way to go camping…🖖

  12. Scott Tennant

    So when in production

  13. Awaiting purchasing instructions!

  14. andrew archuleta

    How can I buy one from you?Or were?

  15. We are going to colorado. I simply need two of these, no three. When my grandkids go fun fun fun

  16. Send this to ThinkGeek. It’ll sell like hotcakes. Nerdy hotcakes. Hot nerdy cakes.

  17. Two please

  18. Rainer Biermann

    Great Idea ! Need to have this – and I’m sure, I’m NOT the only one !!

  19. I’d buy that. Would have to be double skinned though.

  20. Stop messing about! Open a dialogue with Paramount and then get an Indiegogo campaign going! 😉

    Seriously dude – this is a brilliant design. You could even do a larger one based on a runabout 🙂

  21. Blastastic!! I have a side-yard begging me to get this! When? Where? How Much? did I mention When? oh heck, here’s my checkbook, pen, first born…no, can’t do that…ok, I’ll put you in my WILL!!!!

  22. I want that tent. It is dual skin right? Pretty useless if not.

  23. Love this would love to have One

  24. Want!! Grabby hands!!! Throws a truck load of cash at the screen… Although it would need to be a 4 man tent, have you ever slept in a two man tent? There is barely enough room for one person, and certainly no room for gear.

  25. Steven Ortega

    That is beyond awesome.

  26. The entire Star trek world is waiting for you to sell these shuttlecraft tents. Hurry !

  27. I know an entire sci-if larp system that would bulk buy these if you sold them!

  28. Make it so.

  29. I am incomplete until I have this

  30. Chris Hedding

    Where can I get one , please, please?

  31. How much and how do I get it

  32. fabulous! Where when how can I buy one! Like now!!

  33. Shut up and take my money!

  34. why are you reading this instead of making this tent happen !!!

  35. *Throws money at the screen*!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!! HOW DO WE GET ONE!?!?!?

  36. I need this!

  37. I love camping. I love Star Trek.


  38. For the right price, I’M IN!! 😍

  39. MAKE IT SO. Seriously, make it!

  40. Shut up and take my money!! Awesome idea!

  41. Timothy holbrooks

    Where can i get one

  42. Any chance you could mock up a 4-6 man Runabout version, maybe call it the Rubicon? 🙂

  43. WANT IT NOW! *grabby paws*

  44. I’m trying to decide which one of my children I have to give up for this! Ugh… Decisions!

  45. Peter Korsberg

    Gimme gimme gimme gimme… take my money too

  46. Just be sure to get permission from CBS Productions, which owns Star Trek, before actually attempting to make this into a product. I encountered the copyright issue when I wanted to build a full-scale replica of the original shuttle and tour the country with it, inspiring yet another generation of students to pursue engineering careers, much like the original TV series inspired me and countless others. I built a small-scale proof-of-concept prototype (which you can see here: but when I contacted CBS Productions their response was essentially, “Don’t do that”.

    • Dude build first ask permission when caught, if you don’t make a profit they can’t touch you. And if you do they get cut in.

  47. Where can you buy this tent at?

  48. Peggy from Palmdale

    Do it! When and where can I get one?!

  49. I would like have a tent like this too. That’s totally awesome. You are so talented for creating such item. When can I get one from you and how much does it cost? You made my day. 🙂

  50. Fantastic! Love it! Must have at least one.

  51. Start a kickstarter/gofundme campaign to put these into prodution!!!

    I will quite happily donate to it!!!

  52. I command that, this, be made available, to, the public! To boldly go, ehere no man has gone before!

  53. Robert williams

    You better secure a contract with a mass manufacturer and distributor quickly. You won’t be able to meet the demand if you don’t.

  54. whysocertain

    Where is the order button? Where is the order button? Oh god Where is it??!!

  55. I would love one !!!

  56. We want one now! What’s the hold up?

  57. clive cummings

    I know how all of you are feeling about this tent I have a big collection of star trek items and I would just love to had this to my collection and I don’t go camping but if I had one of these I would start for sure. so start making them.

  58. Richard Oickle

    I want this now

  59. Yeah, this is the best thing ever. Imagine a fleet for a large family!!!

  60. I want one for my daughter. She’s a trekkie after my own heart, and she’s been begging for a tent. This is the perfect tent. Please make this happen?!

  61. It is imperative to my survival that I own one of these. Serious.

  62. This really needs to be a thing.

  63. This thing has been posted for more than 12 hours now. Why can’t I order one yet?!!!

  64. so is there a kickstarter campaign for this or what? why tell us this if you are not making this for us to buy? that is just cruel!

  65. Design a bigger one too, some of us like a few passengers. Everyone knows for actual comfort, “two-man” actually means “one-man.”

    If you could add in a food replicator, it’d be perfect for camping. I’d even settle for a marsh melon replicator.

  66. WANT IT NOW!

  67. So where do we buy this??

  68. How do I get this!!?

  69. Jonathan Yunker

    I would like to purchase the Star Trek Shuttlecraft tent. How much does it cost? How do I order it? And if it’s not ready yet then when can I purchase one?
    Thank you very much

  70. Richard Oickle

    I agree this would be awesome. Where and when can we get this?

  71. With all the junk out there that most fans could careless about, this tent would be a very hot item –
    There is no reason that this shouldn’t be available for the fans who are interested, we aren’t talking about a large investment here ..

  72. so it actually real .. or just an idea? If this is real where can I purchase it?

  73. we need to tell Star trek .com to make this or let this person make this

  74. Why are we not funding this ????

  75. Do you make a 4 man or 6 man shuttlecraft tent
    this week ago with my 15 passenger van with USS spradling NCC 1998 on the side

  76. Gregory Ellis


  77. As a Scout Leader in SCOTLAND it must be double skined. As a TREKKIE WANT IT REGAURDLESS.

  78. I want one of these too, maybe we should just take this idea to the actual tent manufacturers, and see if we can start something rolling? lol

  79. I NEED ONE!!! My kids and I need to campout in a shuttlecraft. I’m throwing my credit card at the screen, but nothings happening. SOMEONE HELP ME. I have assimilated this product and I WANT ONE!!!!

  80. Teresa Rakes

    Pretty please!! I would use that!

  81. The delta flyer too?? Please set up a kickstarter, I know you’ll get more than fully funded!!

  82. Yes please! This will sell millions!

  83. Ooh, this I would Love but…. I would like to see the Galileo (from the original series) More.

  84. Oh, I thought this was actually for sale. Shame that it isn’t.

  85. Kelsey Smith

    I will pay as much Latium as is neccesary to have this

  86. where canI get one?

  87. I need a link to buy!!!!!!! I need a fleet

  88. Where can i get one and how much is it?

  89. Alex Everett

    O.K you have us a;ll on the hook. Now you had better start selling these darned things or you are going to piss off a whole genre of fans, and there are MILLIONS of us.

  90. I need this in my life right now. It would be cool if you released a bigger one though. Also, shut up and take my money.

  91. We need one – please – Make it so.

  92. Or submit the design to ThinkGeek and let them work all the licensing rights and sell it for you. But get it into production!!!

  93. Will this be sold?!!!!

  94. It is only logical for Starfleet crew to have sleeping quarters while on away missions! Please make it so, no matter the cost – I’ll pay any reasonable amount!

  95. I live in Southern California and go camping all the time. Plus have been a Trekkie since 1966 when the first show aired. I must have this. Please please please make this. I could see about 5 of these sitting in an open desert or wooded mountain now.

  96. Dana Scheider

    Can I buy this? If so, where?

  97. No ifs, no buts……just a simple, I want!!

    How do I order one??

  98. Kickstarter this. NOW!

  99. Lianne Arnote

    Will it be in production by Christmas? I need to order 4.

  100. Want!

  101. Robert PERRA

    Are there plans for manufacture? I see my son’s next Christmas present–he already has the china.

  102. Gudieeeee…..


  104. John Wheatley

    Take my money already

  105. Joe kuprevich

    Where do we get them? I like 3…

  106. Dump the poles, go with inflatable elements instead. That’s a WAY easier set up and pack option, than your regular poles.
    Also don’t go TNF. Go Vango, Helsport or Hilleberg, if you decide to keep the regular poles. Go Heimplanet, for the inflatable kind.

  107. … you need to put this into a small camper form. That way, on a trailer going down the highway,
    it’d look like it was chasing my truck!

  108. You should seriously start a kickstarer campaign. Please man, for the love of God!

  109. There has got to be a way to get one.

  110. I’m not a camper, but I’d camp if I had this tent! Shut up and take my money already … associated idea … camp chair that looks like the Captain’s chair on the Enterprise … Make it so!

  111. Jerry Kerychuk

    I want I want I want I would definitely buy

Remember to click “like” on any & all of his ideas he’s posted for our consideration. Oh, and I see he is also on Facebook (isn’t everyone these days?) so I definitely liked on his Facebook! 🙂

  136. You need to make a roof box version of this to sit on top of the car so it looks like the shuttle has docked with me….. Here’s my cash…

  137. Paramount,

    Please let me know what person/animal you would like for me to sacrifice to you to make this happen…

  176. daisyraytheclown

    That would be so awesome! I could see my boys camping out in the living room in that while watching Star Trek.

  177. Yes please!!!!!!

  178. As a life-long fan, growing up on the classic reruns even before TNG ever came out, I love this. I would be even more excited if the shuttle’s name were Goddard – because of Relics.

    At present, I am in college, so I could not afford one (assuming it were for sale), but if I get into my chosen career, I would have a hard time saying no…

  179. Please, how can I get one of these?

  180. If you do not make this in mass quantities I will feed your Pe”taq carcass to the targs other than that Dif tor heh smusma Live long and prosper Qapla

  181. Contact ThinkGeek and make this happen! I want one to take on my camping trip in Idaho this August to see the solar eclipse. And of course to Vasquez Rock.

  182. Id like to purchase one…where can i get one?

  183. Where do I buy this? And why do I not have 10 of them?

  184. There has GOT TO BE some geeky manufacturer out there that will put this pinnacle of nerd camp-gear into production…please send this idea to all of them…I MUST HAVE! 😀

  185. Just weighing in here and registering for updates – I would do instantly buy this it actually hurts. PLEASE sort out a crowd funding page?!?! #LLAP

  186. Shannon Glover

    Please take my money!

  187. When can we buy them and how much ?

  188. I only just saw this on facebook today.
    Will this be made for real? ~~\(0.0)/~~
    I really want to go camping someday.
    But, since i’m a 30year old Autistic woman with a fear of the dark(its just not going away xD i’ve tried)& anxiety issues XD this would be a major incentive & help immensely if it existed. I tried camping in the back garden once as a child, but got too scared & came back in doors when it got dark & a wee bit wind blew with a bit rain(i had a Gizmo cuddly too xD). If i could pretend i was Starfleet(science officer, possibly medical)on an away mission though, i might be able to brave it longer.
    Please please considering making it for real?
    I’m sure a lot of people would buy it.
    Though, obviously it’ll need promoted well too.
    Maybe it might sell enough to be able to make different shuttlecraft designs/prints?

  189. How can I buy the Star Trek tent

  190. Where do I buy this and how much will it cost? Including shipping to Australia.

  191. thedigitaldub

    WANT X 1,000,000

  192. Come on! Paramount or whoever! Make this!

  193. I need at least three of these :). They would be perfect when I am going on digs and other anthropology/archaeology trips. Even just for normal camping here in Colorado.

  194. Maggi Horseman

    Beam me up. I want one!

  195. MAKE IT SO!!

  196. malkavthejester

    Shut up and take my money!

  197. Where do I get one!!!!!!

  198. So how much is it and how can I order it?

  199. Is the shuttle craft tent available to purchase?

  200. When will tent be available?

  201. Could you at least give us the pattern? Then we could “make it sew”!

  202. Are .. Are you telling me that I can’t actually buy this?


  203. Where does one purchase this star trek tent and how much is it?

  204. Michael Gatehouse

    I think the general consensus is why is this not an actual thing yet and how can we make it happen.
