The Type-6 Shuttle is a Starfleet shuttlecraft actively serving aboard Federation starships and installations during the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.

General Overview

A short-range vessel, the Type-6 shuttlecraft was an evolution of successful earlier designs such as the Type 3-class Shuttle and was the basis for the later Type 8-class Shuttle.

The Type-6 had a duranium/tritanium hull and featured key redundant systems including operations and sensors. It also introduced isolinear computer systems into shuttlecraft service. The craft could be fitted with a portable transporter, phasers, and shields which became standard for these shuttles by 2374. Entry was via a large hatch at the rear.

Type-6 shuttlecraft were part of the standard loadout aboard Galaxy-class, Nebula-class, and Intrepid-class starships as well as space stations and other Federation facilities.
