Go on a real adventure for your next away mission with this fun and super easy Star Trek style pop-up tent. The camping tent is also great for beach days and playing in the back yard.
Once unfolded, the tent measures about 42" tall, 47" wide, and 94" long, making it a cozy small space for a camping couple. When not in use, the tent folds up easily and can be stored away in the included carrying bag. The tent also comes with four ground nails to keep it secure in its space.
We've had a tent like this one and they are so easy and actually quite funny to set up -- just pull it out of the bag and give it a little toss. The structure of the frame means it "wants" to be unfolded and in its erect position. Refolding the tent might take a few tries but once you get the hang of how to fold it, you wont' believe how easy it is.
Note the size of this little tent -- it's cozy (aka small). You won't have a lot of room for extras, and standing up fully inside the tent isn't possible for most adults. The small size and ease of use does make this an ideal tent for other kinds of outings, like a day at the beach, in the park, or for kids camping out in the backyard.
Ok, now that we've talked about the ease of use and size of the tent, can we look at the awesome print job on this thing to make it look just like a Next Generation shuttlecraft, complete with call letters and familiar stripe design?! How fun would it be to whip this out during a space launch viewing, Trek fan viewing party, or other event where like minded friends are gathering?!
Make fans look twice when you wear this fun graphic t-shirt that looks like an eye-chart from a distance -- but is revealed to show characters in the Klingon language when viewed up close.
Is today a good day to die? It's best to be sure -- go ahead and check your eyesight with this handy chart. Can't read the letters? Then today is probably not your day. Or the phrase "a good day to die" is not really in your vocabulary.
Shown here on a white value shirt in a unisex cut, this Klingon eyechart design is available on a variety of apparel options and other novelty gifts. See some example options below..

OMG this product made me laugh so hard! It's a novelty dog poop bag dispenser made for Star Trek fans. What?!
So the design of this awesome dog poop bag dispenser is inspired by communicators from the original series. It's a bit more rounded, which probably means it's more comfortable to wear dangling from your belt, but otherwise the details are pretty good. Flip up the lid to reveal the inside, where the device further resembles a TOS communicator with replica lights. The audio port is actually the portal from which the poop bags are fed.
This officially licensed (!) Star Trek dog poop bag dispenser comes with a clip so you can attach it to your leash, belt, or wherever it will be most handy. The dispenser is highly rated, with users noting the handy size that holds extra rolls of bags.
Sometimes runners like to dress up on race day. I've been participating in Disney races since 2016, and it's always a lot of fun to dress up for those events. Twice I've had a blast dressing up as Star Trek characters during Star Wars races: once as a Discovery Medical Officer and once as a TOS-Era Starfleet Command Officer.
I was always looking for my next Star Trek costume for running, so I was heartbroken to learn Disney won't host Star Wars races going forward. That won't stop me from themed race costumes, though. Here are some more ideas for easy Star Trek themed running outfits.
This polyester dress would be a great start to a running outfit. You might want to wear black tights or shorts underneath to prevent chafing or have pockets to carry race needs. This dress is made of polyester but doesn't look to be moisture-wicking, so consider wearing this for shorter distance races.
In The Next Generation, blue Starfleet uniforms were for medical and science officers. This Star Trek rash guard is made of thick, moisture-wicking material. It's made for swimming, so it's meant to have a snug fit. I actually have this top and have used it for kayaking. It would be an easy starting piece for a complete running outfit. Add black bottoms (running skirt, pants, or shorts), and you'll be good to go!
Dress up as Mariner, Boimler, or another command-track ensign with this funny cartoon-style Star Trek uniform costume t-shirt. This is a lightweight top made of polyester. Though it's not a technical, moisture-wicking weave, it's light and comfortable to wear. Again, just adding your own black pants or skirt will complete this look. You could dye your hair purple if you're going as Boimler, or add a fun alien prosthetic to your face or body to add some more authenticity to your running costume.
Add a Star Trek running hat to your outfit for comfort and extra theming. I have this hat in yellow and it was perfect to wear for a race. It's made of moisture-wicking material, has an adjustable strap for a good fit, and comes in three Starfleet colors. Keep the sun out of your eyes or rain off your face when you wear a billed baseball-style running hat like this officially licensed cap in three colors.
Sometimes runners like to dress up for races! I've been running Disney races for a while, and it's always so much fun to dress up for those events.
It doesn't have to been a theme park event to dress up, though. Some races are famous for their costumed runners, like Bay to Breakers. Local races with fun themes were pretty much made for costume runners. And of course it's a lot of fun to dress up for holiday races, especially Halloween!
For the old Star Wars themed race weekends at Walt Disney World, I would typically run all three events. For the 5K I liked to be a little bit cheeky and dress up as a non-Star Wars character. Star Trek always felt like a great option and it was especially memorable when interacting with characters and members of the 501st on the course -- lots of those 501sties are Trekkies, too!
During the Rival Run 5K in 2019, I dressed up as a TOS-era command officer. (You can read my race report here: 2019 Star Wars Rival Run 5K). Here's what you'll need to recreate this comfortable and easy yet unmistakable running costume outfit look.
I wore this officially licensed long sleeve Star Trek costume shirt for the race. The command officer shirt is made of polyester, but it's not very lightweight or moisture-wicking. It was great for a 5K, especially this one, since it was a cool and rainy morning. I might wear this for a slow 10K too, but for a longer distance, or for actual racing, it might spell disaster in the form of chafing or over-heating.
For my race, I wore a black SparkleSkirt that I had in my closet already. Any black bottoms would work well with this costume, like this affordable black running skirt with shorts attached.
If you end up liking this particular skirt, it comes in different colors and cuts so you could get more to have on hand for future costume runs.
This awesome Star Trek running hat is made of moisture-wicking tech material and comes in all three familiar Star Trek uniform colors (blue and red in addition to yellow). I got the yellow one and it's a great match for the shirt. I like to run in a hat anyway so this was a great find.
