For other uses, see Renaissance.

The Renaissance was a space shuttle built as the prototype of a second generation of shuttles. Budget cuts led to the cancellation of all new shuttles, except the Renaissance, which was completed with the help of international donors and private investors.


In the year 2020, the Renaissance, piloted by Commander Shirin Ludden, delivered Colonel Shaun Christopher to the USS Lewis & Clark and then returned to Earth. (TOS novel: The Rings of Time)
