The Hawking (NCC-1701-D/15) was a Federation type-4 shuttlecraft in service to Starfleet in the mid-24th century.

History[edit | edit source]

The shuttle was assigned to the USS Enterprise-D in the early 2360s, when that starship was commissioned. Hawking was the latest of a series of shuttles to bear that name, with a previous example having been assigned to the earlier USS Enterprise.

At some point, the shuttlecraft Hawking was used by Worf and two other crewmembers to transport a false probe into three invading Borg spheres near Jupiter's moon of Io. The probe was sucessful in destroying the cubes, and also sent back the Borg self-destruct code, which the Enterprise used to save the Hawking from a surprise attack from a Borg cube. (Star Trek: The Exhibition flight simulator)

In 2371, the Hawking was used to transport the survivors of the destroyed Enterprise-D to the rescue ships in orbit of Veridian III. (TNG movie, novelization & comic adaptation: Generations)
