The Type-10 shuttlecraft was a United Federation of Planets shuttlecraft that was introduced in 2373. They were designed for use with Defiant-class starships. These shuttlecraft were the successor to the Type-6 shuttlecraft. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual, ST reference: Starship Spotter)


The USS Defiant carried the Type-10 shuttle Chaffee by 2374. Around stardate 51948.3 of that year, Captain Benjamin Sisko, Lieutenant Julian Bashir, and Senior Chief Miles O'Brien deployed in the Chaffee in an attempt to rescue Captain Lisa Cusak of the USS Olympia from a class L planet. (DS9 episode: "The Sound of Her Voice")

In 2376, the USS Mjolnir was carrying a Type-10 shuttlecraft when Captain Kira Nerys came aboard to receive Deep Space 9's new runabout Yolja. (DS9 novel: The Dominion: Olympus Descending)

Technical information[]

The Type-10's power grid made no use of antimatter, enabling it to safely enter areas of subspace metreon radiation where another vessel would suffer catastrophic warp core damage. (DS9 episode: "The Sound of Her Voice")

The Type-10 had a stronger hull than the Type-8 shuttlecraft and could polarize its hull plating. It also came equipped with micro-photon torpedoes. (ST video game: Star Trek Online)

Type-10 shuttlecraft were considered "zippy" by Prynn Tenmei. (DS9 - Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel: Andor: Paradigm)

The Type-10 shuttlecraft was designed by Doug Drexler and rendered as CGI for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "The Sound of Her Voice".

Although the shuttlecraft only made one onscreen appearance, Drexler has used it many times in the Ships of the Line calendars.

A Type-10 shuttlecraft appears on Mike Collins' artwork for Robert Greenberger's Slings and Arrows Ebook, A Weary Life.
