The Anaximenes was a Starfleet shuttlecraft attached to the USS Enterprise-E in the 2370s. It had a maximum speed of warp 6.7.


In early 2373, Will Riker, Geordi La Forge and Padraig Daniels took the Anaximenes into the Badlands to prevent a transfer of Klingon material between Maquis cells. During the mission, Anaximenes was attacked by Cardassian forces, though not seriously damaged. (TNG - Slings and Arrows eBook: A Weary Life)

The cover of A Weary Life depicted the Anaximenes as a Type-10 shuttlecraft, although the shuttle type is not mentioned in the novel.
