A Type-8 and Type-10 shuttle

Federation Shuttles are a type of Hangar Pet for Starfleet characters and their allies, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

It is a collective name for two visual variants of hangar pet: Type 8 and Type 10 Shuttles.

As a standard-issue hangar pet, they are always available for purchase and can be equipped on any vessel capable of launching hangar pets. Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability:

Shuttlecraft are typically warp capable auxiliary craft, used for short-range missions such as the transportation of personnel or supplies.

The successor design to the Type 6 and Type 7 shuttles of the late-24th Century, the Type 8 shuttlecraft has been in service since the mid-2370s. Since then Type 8 has remained the standard issue shuttle onboard most Starfleet vessels and facilities. These shuttlecraft however are lightly armed and lightly shielded, equipped with only a single phaser array.

The Type 10 shuttlecraft, also referred to as Chaffee-type, were originally designed for deployment from Defiant-class starships during the Dominion War. They are moderately tougher than their standard issue Type 8 counterparts, gaining a Photon torpedo with its Elite variant.

Wings of standard-issue (rare) Type 8 Shuttles come pre-loaded as part of the standard equipment of most Starfleet vessels with hangar bays (i.e. Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser). Type 10 Shuttles do not come pre-loaded as part of any Starfleet vessels' standard equipment.

Modifiers[edit source]

Hangar pet performance may be affected by various factors (unless stated otherwise), all listed below.

  • Innate
    • All Hangar pets are immune to warp core breaches and have an unique version of the Strategist specialization ability "Layered Defense", known as "Layered Defenses III", which makes them immune to a single torpedo hit every 30 seconds.
    • Starships with Hangar Bays by default can use Carrier commands, a set of four abilities which issue orders to your Hangar pets.
  • Subsystem
    • Auxiliary Power level will determine the recharge rate before a Hangar pet can be launched again; if Auxiliary subsystem is knocked offline, the Hangar will not operate.
  • Skill Tree
    • Skill Nodes
    • Unlocks
