Because every great utility vehicle has a roof rack option.
Hadn't though of that, but that might be exactly what it is. Like a picatinny rail on a gun, or the clamps that mount a cargo container to a flat bed.

You could attach phasers, torpedo launcher, sensors, fuel tanks, skis, or just boxes of supplies to the roof.

The ones on the bottom the same deal. The shuttle could take off, land on top of a cargo container, grab on, and take off again.

Starting to like this idea Zombie Redshirt.

Like the rollbar on DS9 Runabouts? Not a bad ideal. And makes the TOS shuttles more handy for long-range exploration starships like the Enterprise.
