Re: Shuttlecraft

The new movie shows a shuttle design that is shaped quite like the TOS one, with minor detail variations only. This shuttle type was used for evacuating a dying starship's crew from what appeared to be hostile territory - so the odds are that this shuttle was warp-capable as well. At least the type had prominent warp nacelles...

The scene was dated at 2233, and is our earliest indication of warp-capable Starfleet shuttles, although the movie offers no solid proof for that capacity. TOS proof for the warp abilities of Kirk's shuttlecraft is more substantial.
