The Kepler was a Federation shuttlecraft in service to Starfleet in the 23rd century. The shuttle was assigned to the starship USS Enterprise in late 2260s.

Service historyEdit

In 2270, Lieutenant Jimmy Clayton landed Kepler on the planet Gateway to deliver a security detachment assigned to prevent Klingons from gaining access to the Guardian of Forever. The shuttle was accompanied by the Caroline Herschel, which brought down a second team of security officers. Both teams reboarded their shuttles and retreated at Spock's warning. Clayton witnessed the IKS Gr'oth crash into the Guardian. (TOS - Crucible novel: Provenance of Shadows)

James T. Kirk watched Kepler's sensor logs of the crash while recuperating in an infirmary at Starbase 10. (TOS - Crucible novel: The Star to Every Wandering)

The shuttle's class was not specified.
