The Type-18 Shuttlepod is a Starfleet shuttlepod actively serving aboard Federation starships and installations during the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.

General Overview

Like the Type 10-class Shuttle, the Type-18 shuttlepod was first developed alongside and for use aboard the Defiant-class escort. Compared to the Type-15 and Type-16 shuttlepods, the Type-18 is designed to handle more vigorous assignments and function in battle situations.

The Type-18 is suitable for a variety of roles including starship escape, planetary surface operations, and ship-to-ship transfers. The craft is equipped with limited phaser armaments but can be modified to mount a number of small weapons systems. Like the Type-10, the Type-18 features truncated, armored nacelle pods.
