The Type-8 Shuttle is a Starfleet shuttlecraft actively serving aboard Federation starships and installations during the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.

General Overview

A development of the successful Type 6-class Shuttle design, the more advanced and streamlined Type-8 shuttlecraft was introduced for use on Intrepid-class starships. Type-8 shuttlecraft are composed of duranium, magnesite, and carbon residue. They are not normally armed but can be fitted with dual phaser emitters.

The Type-8's computer system incorporates the same bio-neural gel pack technology first employed aboard Intrepid-class starships as a replacement for the isolinear chips of the Type 6-class Shuttle. The more advanced and efficient warp nacelles are also modeled on the Intrepid's design. Internally, the Type-8's layout is very similar to the Type-6 with a slightly larger passenger and cargo compartment. The craft is fitted with a medium-range transporter.
