Wow.


As for the original question...

It's not actually a shuttle, but if I were to ask for any support craft in the Starfleet, I'd ask for a Danube-class runabout. Preferably the U.S.S. Rio Grande.

^ EmperorTiberius, it's already been pointed out that the image on the cover of that book is not what it looks like:

Bad Robot's Kelvin and Enterprise non warp and warp capable shuttles.

TMP's Surak and V's shuttles.

I still can't believe that anyone is going for something other than a runabout.

Why not? Get a runabout, and you can use it for all the same things as your little shuttle, and you can also spend a week on Mars if you so desire.

Besides, why wouldn't you want to spend your time in something that has a replicator and the sum total of human knowledge. And hey, chick magnet too.

Re: If you could own a shuttle, which one would it be?

I'm still sticking with the Argo. Basically a runabout with a garage. Do you suppose that a Romulan Scorpion would fit in the garage?

Re: If you could own a shuttle, which one would it be?

Just when I think I know a lot about Star Trek, you guys prove me wrong. Hehe. I'd say, Delta Flyer. Seems comfy, pretty. Bathrooms and sleep possibilities is what I need.

I could do without the "retro" design Tom Paris added though, with all the buttons..

Not the Type 9 sweat box: "They used to shoehorn half a dozen cadets into one of these things for weeks at a time. You did not want to be around when they opened up that airlock." Though Janeway's Endgame one was a pimp-my-shuttle.

I'd vote for Alice.

Runabout's are just flying RV's effectively.

This variant of the Type-7 Shuttle is very nice.

I just wish the door / loading ramp was on the back and extend the cockpit further. Otherwise it's a very nice variant of the classic Type-7 Shuttle
