The Class C shuttlecraft was a commonly used Starfleet shuttlecraft during the mid-23rd century.
From the mid-2230s to the mid-2250s, Class C shuttlecraft were utilized by Starfleet, and were standard across the fleet, including on starbases, Crossfield-class, Walker-class, and Constitution-class ships.
This type of craft was also used by the Imperial Starfleet in the mirror universe. (DIS: "Vaulting Ambition")
In 2257, an upgraded Class C shuttle with larger aft compartment was introduced. (DIS: "Such Sweet Sorrow")
Technical data Edit
This type of craft had a cockpit with seating for two pilots and a cabin area with seating for a dozen passengers. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings", "Choose Your Pain")
The aft section of the shuttles were equipped with transporters, capable of transporting at least three persons. (DIS: "If Memory Serves", "Through the Valley of Shadows")
Type 2 phasers were also located in an equipment bay on the bulkhead near the aft airlock. (DIS: "If Memory Serves")
When the shuttle was landed, a telescoping ramp extended from beneath the airlock, allowing egress and entry. (DIS: "Project Daedalus", "If Memory Serves")
The shuttle was equipped with a ventral bay, from which it could launch probes. It had blast shutters that could close over the windows in case of attack. (DIS: "Light and Shadows")
In 2257, the complement of Class C shuttlecraft aboard the USS Enterprise and USS Discovery were upgraded with enhanced phasers in preparation for battle with a Control controlled Section 31 fleet. Many appeared reconfigured with a larger aft component attached to the hull, as evidenced by DSC 12 and DSC 23. (DIS: "Such Sweet Sorrow")
Livery on the Class C shuttle consisted of bold red striping occasionally including white stripes), registry number of the ship or facility to which the shuttle is attached, and Starfleet insignia. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings", "If Memory Serves")
