Class Description

The Type 18 shuttlepod is small enough that it is frequently used in the smaller vessels in the fleet such as the Defiant and Saber classes.

By 2371, the venerable Type 15 shuttlepod was staring to show its age. Having been implemented on the older Constitution refit class and ships of that era, it was decided that a replacement for this shuttle was well overdue.

Keeping on similar design motifs, the Type 18 was designed to be small and efficient, but upgraded to include a much improved computer and drive engine. As is typical of small shuttlepods, the Type 18 does not carry any armaments, as her standard operations don’t call for the use of weaponry.
