The Mark II Captain's Yacht is a Starfleet captain's yacht actively serving aboard Federation starships and installations during the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.

General Overview

The Mark II-class Captain's Yacht was designed as a multipurpose vehicle but is principally used for diplomatic missions or for the captain's personal use. When docked, the yacht uses power from the starship. Once launched, however, it is a completely independent craft equipped with transporters, phasers, impulse engines, and warp engines. The nacelles move down into their flight position once the craft has been deployed. Not only is the Mark II-class Captain's Yacht capable of atmospheric flight and planetfall, it can also be flown by a single pilot. It has a cockpit, passenger and cargo areas, and a small transporter.

The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E's captain's yacht was called the Cousteau. In 2375, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his senior staff took the Cousteau to the Ba'ku planet as part of a plan to prevent the forced relocation of the Ba'ku by the Son'a.

Technical Data

Physical Arrangement

The Mark II Captain's Yacht docks to a bay in the ventral surface of the Excalibur-class and Sovereign-class saucers. This craft is also capable of operating independently for a period of several weeks.
