Interestingly enough, the Air Force was working on manned military versions of space craft up through about 1966 (pre-treaty). The proposed projects included the Boeing X-20 ("Dyna-Soar"), which was never built, and the "Blue Gemini" program, which, as the name suggests, were military versions of the Gemini space capsule.

If memory serves, there is a "Blue Gemini" capsule of some description on display in San Diego(?).

Though the former was sort of Space Shuttle-ish, it was no X-Wing or TIE fighter.
