This page lists and describes unnamed Federation shuttlecraft classes.

By assignment[edit | edit source]

USS Enterprise (NCC-1701)[edit | edit source]

USS Enterprise-E[edit | edit source]

This shuttle-type was similar to the Type-9 shuttlecraft but had a more squared-off aft section and two extra warp nacelles or equipment/sensor pods mounted one on each side of the upper aft hull. At least four of these shuttles were assigned to the USS Enterprise-E. (Ships of the Line 2014)

USS Excelsior[edit | edit source]

This type of Federation shuttlecraft was in service during the late-23rd century. One of which, the NX-2000/05A, was assigned to the USS Excelsior. (TOS - The Mirror Universe Saga comic: "The Beginning of the End...")

USS Onimaru[edit | edit source]

This shuttle-type was in use in the late-24th century and appeared to be of an intermediary type between the Type-6 and Type-11 shuttlecraft. The USS Onimaru carried at least one of this class of shuttle which was deployed while in orbit of an inhabited planet. (Ships of the Line 2014)

By named shuttle[edit | edit source]

For other uses, see Jefferies.

This shuttle type was in use alongside the class F shuttlecraft during the mid-late 23rd century. At least one of these shuttles used a landing facility near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco on Earth. (Ships of the Line 2017)

Design sketches.

Background[edit | edit source]

Star Trek: The Original Series art director and production designer, Matt Jefferies, designed this teardrop-shaped shuttle for the TOS episode: "The Galileo Seven" but, due to the curved hull being expensive to reproduce, the now familiar flat-sided F-class shuttlecraft was constructed instead. (ST reference: The Art of Star Trek; Star Trek: The Magazine Issue 12: "Designing the Galileo Shuttlecraft")

Weyland-type[edit | edit source]

This shuttle appeared to be a successor to the type-4 and predecessor to the type-6 shuttlecraft. Two of this type of shuttle, including the Weyland, took part in a reprovisioning of the USS Balmung by the USS Mughi at some point in the 24th century. (Ships of the Line 2012)

Zhang Sui-type[edit | edit source]

See Zhang Sui-type.

Shuttlepods[edit | edit source]

24th century[edit | edit source]

This type of shuttlepod appeared to be of a newer design to the Type-15. Differences included a slightly longer hull, a curved cockpit and larger propulsion nacelles similar to those of the Type-6 shuttlecraft.

This class was assigned to Federation installations such as the Remmler Array and the Starfleet Museum of Deep Space Exploration. It could also be found on Earth flying around Starfleet Academy buildings in the city of San Francisco. (Ships of the Line calendars 2010, 2014; Starfleet Academy SCISEC Briefs episode: "SCISEC Brief 004: The Whale Probe")

Background[edit | edit source]

This shuttle, originally designed by Rick Sternbach for Star Trek: The Next Generation, was meant to replace the unwieldy type-7 shuttlecraft but was never used. If it had been constructed, it was to have had a crew capacity of 6-8, a sliding side door, a flip-open rear hatch, and removable warp nacelles. (TNG reference: Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Continuing Mission)

Apocrypha[edit | edit source]

It is known as the Type-17 shuttlepod in some fan and artist circles. (Flare Sci-Fi Forums, ASDB Journal of Applied Treknology - Shuttles, HomespunMagixx (papercraft))
