Of course, taken out of context like that most of Trek reads like TNG season 8. Those novels were great reads, especially Indistinguishable From Magic.
Hey, the TNG Season 8 where there's a duplicate Enterprise with a duplicate crew that's a nanite/Borg evolutionary breakthrough was a pretty solid A plot. The B plot was kind of dopey, though.

Voyager managed it just fine. They built their super shuttle in the space of a single episode, and unless they had like 50 plus shuttles crammed in every nook and cranny of the ship, they were rebuilding those things non-stop.
As I recall the episode where they first build the Delta Flyer, while some components were replicated, most of it was from off the shelf stores.

Voyager lost ten shuttles (and one Delta Flyer) in seven years, with another seven not destroyed but likely unrecoverable.

We did see them engage in trade, so it's possible that they contracted out component manufacture, and did the final assemble themselves. This would minimize information transfer and violation of the prime directive.

Yeah, let's not mention Voyager. They abandoned the "limited energy and resources" idea pretty damn fast.
They never rescinded the rationing of the replicator through to the end of the series.

And if ya go by the novels, Scotty gets back to Earth, becomes a host of a bar, and winds up in charge of Starfleet's Corps of Engineers before gettin' command of a Galaxy class starship.
It's fanficcy crap like this that makes me dislike the novels.
Well, the novels have used Scotty pretty randomly, and some of it was pretty dumb, but him bein' the fleet liaison between the Corps of Engineers and Starfleet Command admirals makes sense, all things considered.

The best way Scotty was put to use in the 24th century was in the S.C.E. series.

Scotty getting his own ship? Man you know they pretty much found the most responsible and sober person ever to be his XO and basically told him he's in charge.

Re: Shuttles

The crew was a bit fan fiction - y, in that Geordi got temporary reassignment from the Big E-E and served as Scotty's first officer. Nog was also on the crew, along with a Klingon Defense Force pilot with a reckless driving record.

Re: Shuttles

Runabouts were just really, really big shuttles and they could do warp 5, and have torpedo attachments and the like. I remember reading the in TNG technical manual that some shuttles could do Warp 2 or 4 or the like.

The Plymouth Horizon/Shuttle pods were just complete jokes.

Voyager's shuttles managed warp 9 without so much as breaking a sweat (one managed warp 10 twice... but we don't talk about that episode). I guess Starfleet lumped Picard with some obsolete models

Which is why Voyager was stupid. For a shuttle to operate at Warp 9 without a meaningful warp core is stupid.

You know.. lizards or not, why didn't they just use that warp 10 to get home? The doctor reversed it easy enough.

Or send the Doctor back as a messanger saying "Hey, we're fine."

The show suffered heavily from Gilligan's Island Syndrome.

Yay miniaturization! In Nemesis they had a transporter the size of a rank pip. Welcome to the future of the future.
