In starship classification, shuttlecraft, or shuttles, are auxiliary craft typically attached to a starship or a starbase. Most shuttles are short-range starships, possessing only impulse drive or a limited warp capability. Utilization of shuttlecraft is common for most spacefaring civilizations, especially for situations where the transporter cannot be used for landings, or where such technology does not yet exist.
Most Starfleet shuttlecraft from the 23rd century onward had warp nacelles, indicating warp capability.
