List of unnamed Federation type-8 shuttlecraft.


In the year 2371, a type-8 shuttle attached to USS Voyager was captured by a Numiri patrol vessel to retrieve Doctor Tolen Ren's weapon research, hidden in the memory engram of Tom Paris. Lieutenant Paris and Ensign Harry Kim ostensibly piloted the shuttle but it actually served as a decoy. Captain Kathryn Janeway had the shuttle loaded with 40 tons of thalmerite explosives and threatened the patrol vessel with its detonation. The Numiri relented and the shuttle returned to Voyager. (VOY episode: "Ex Post Facto")

A type-8 shuttle passed the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco in 2371. In an alternate timeline created when Harry Kim intersected with a temporal inversion fold, Kim observed the shuttle's transit from his apartment in the Mission District. (VOY episode: "Non Sequitur")
