The Inspection Pod was a Starfleet shuttlepod actively serving aboard United Earth starships and installations during the twenty-second century.

General Overview

An Orbital Inspection pod was a type of shuttlepod used by Earth STarfleet in the mid twenty-second century. At that time, matter-energy transportation was not yet in regular use, so Inspection Pods and shuttles were a principal method of transferring personnel to and from starships.

The capsule featured a two person cockpit with large observation windows and a docking port at the rear. Remote manipulators enabled the pod operator to handle cargo and carry out repairs. Propulsion was provided by thrusters. Inspection Pods could be launched into orbit atop rockets, then maneuvered to holding areas and outfitted for specific duties.

NX-class starships carried two Inspection Pods which could be launched via the ventral cargo bay doors for handling cargo, repairs, and routine maintenance.
