Great Camp­site

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR CHILD - By Teioh Nuan Ning, 10

AL­MOST ev­ery­one loves space­ships, es­pe­cially the Mil­len­nium Fal­con which can soar through the galaxy at in­cred­i­ble speeds. The Mil­len­nium Fal­con is fast, but isn’t ex­cit­ing enough to suit my taste.

My ship is called the Camp­site. The Camp­site is shaped like a tent. Camp­sites are cozy and ex­cit­ing, and this is how my ship is. Some­times, the Camp­site can be even more fun and ex­cit­ing than camp­ing in the woods. The Camp­site can land on any sur­face and in any con­di­tions.

This ship is per­fect for long and rough jour­neys. There are cozy, air- con­di­tioned sleep­ing com­part­ments with bunk beds for two.

The Camp­site doesn’t need a con­trol room, just a com­mu­ni­ca­tions room be­cause it is pi­loted from the main­land. The com­mu­ni­ca­tions room would have the fastest In­ter­net avail­able and, of course, phone lines to com­mu­ni­cate with the pi­lots on the main­land.

The small kitchen would be stocked with all kinds of vac­uum- packed food to last us the en­tire jour­ney. Din­ing rooms are not nec­es­sary as our cozy sleep­ing com­part­ments are good enough. Ev­ery ship should have an en­ter­tain­ment room filled with books, mu­sic and board games.

The bath­rooms are like any bath­room on Earth, ex­cept that it has no wa­ter.

A weapons room with all kinds of canons, blasters, guns, pis­tols and other weapons would come in handy upon land­ing on an en­emy planet. Lastly, my ship would need an at­tire room to store all kinds of at­tire to meet any sit­u­a­tion. –
