This shuttlecraft was used by Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Commander Worf in an attempt to locate a missing Federation mission scoutship and to deactivate its malfunctioning pilot, Lieutenant Commander Data.
In their first attempt, they fired tachyon bursts at the mission scout, forcing Data to reset his shields, and allowing them an opportunity to beam him off the vessel. Attempts, however, to transport Data from the scoutship failed as he initiated a transport inhibitor.
Their second attempt was to distract Data and proceed to forcibly dock with the mission scout by locking onto it with the shuttle's docking clamps. In doing so, they were able to access the mission scout through its docking hatch on the ventral hull. (Star Trek: Insurrection)
