The type-8 heavy cargo shuttle was a type of small spacecraft, a shuttlecraft in use by the Federation's Starfleet in the 2330s decade.

History and specifications

In the year 2333, the starship USS Stargazer was equipped with a type-8 heavy cargo shuttle. Upon Ensign Jiterica's assignment to Stargazer, Lieutenant Chiang familiarized her with the roster of the vessel's complement of shuttles.

Later in their mission to Beta Barritus, Dikembe Ulelo found a problem with the communications systems aboard the Stargazer's type-8 shuttle. He offered to fix it for Chiang, causing Ulelo to be late for his bridge duty, where Lieutenant Martin Paxton was waiting for Ulelo to relieve him. (STA novel: Gauntlet)
