The Type-9 Shuttle is a Starfleet shuttlecraft actively serving aboard Federation starships and installations during the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.

General Overview

The Type-9 shuttlecraft is a fast, long-range auxiliary craft ideal for personnel transport, scouting, and reconnaissance. It is often referred to as a Class-2 shuttle.

Older Class-2 shuttles were widely used during the 2360s at Starfleet Academy and, though fast and maneuverable, were notorious for their cramped interiors. The Type-9 features a streamlined hull and nacelles as well as a pronounced forward deflector dish that houses a compact long-range sensor. Type-9 shuttlecraft are equipped with phasers as standard and can be retrofitted with photon torpedoes. They also carry a medium-range transporter. Most of the components of these types of shuttle were designed to be easily replicated, making them easy to replace.

In 2372, the crew of the USS Voyager discovered a new form of dilithium that enabled a modified Class-2 shuttle to achieve speeds significantly past warp nine.
