When people think of Starfleet vessels, they tend to think of majestic starships plying the interstellar spacelanes. In truth, there are many more shuttlecraft in service withing Starfleet than starships. These versatile craft are to be found in every corner of the Federation, from the smallest outpost to the largest starbase, on starships and on planetary surfaces, in every system capable of spaceflight.
Shuttles have come a long way from the lumbering Orbiters of the late 20th century. Most shuttlecraft today have some warp capability, allowing them to perform longer range missions than ever before.
