A shuttlecrawler was a type of Federation shuttlecraft outfitted with a retractable all-terrain ground propulsion system. These vehicles operated within the Federation Starfleet as well as various civilian mining operations in the 23rd century. (FASA RPG module: Star Fleet Intelligence Manual)

Specifics Edit

Shuttlecrawlers could be further customized, as could tunnel runners and sizzle bug mining craft. (FASA RPG module: Star Fleet Intelligence Manual)

A shuttlecrawler was sometimes assigned to the Federation starship USS Enterprise during the 2260s. (TAS novelization: The Eye of the Beholder, TOS comic: "Target: Zargot")

Service historyEdit

In the 2260s, the space bug shuttlecrawler Space Bug X-4 brought a landing party to the surface of the planet Coltac, seeking herbs that were the main ingredient for a plague cure on Zargot. (TOS comic: "Target: Zargot")

In 2269, Hikaru Sulu piloted a shuttlecrawler with an exploratory team to the unusual surface of Boqu II. (TAS novelization: The Eye of the Beholder)
