For other uses, see Faraday.

The Faraday (NX-74205/01) was a 24th century Federation auxiliary vessel, a type-18 shuttlepod shuttlepod service in the 2370s decade. The Faraday was assigned to the Defiant-class escort USS Defiant (NX-74205). (Shuttle Collection Issue 22: "Type-18 Shuttlepod")

Service history[]

Faraday and Shuttle 02 (NX-74205/02) were assigned to the Defiant upon its launch in the year 2371. The Defiant carried at least two Type-18 shuttlepods for away missions and ancillary support. (Shuttle Collection Issue 22: "Type-18 Shuttlepod")

Early in the year 2371, Odo and Kira Nerys escaped from a virtual Jem'Hadar attack on the Defiant in Shuttle 01, with Benjamin Sisko and Julian Bashir taking Shuttle 02. It later turned out to be a simulation performed on the Defiant crew by the Vorta. (DS9 episode: "The Search")

Faraday generates a subspace field around comet fragments.

Later that year, Sisko and Kira used Faraday to generate a subspace field around comet fragments travelling through the Bajoran wormhole to prevent silithium from the comet reacting with the wormhole. (DS9 episode: "Destiny")
