The Hypatia was a Federation Type 6 shuttlecraft that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-24th century, attached to the USS Enterprise-D. It was shuttle number 03, replacing the shuttlecraft Curie lost in 2370.

In that year, this shuttle was taken by Picard and Data to retrieve a lost photon torpedo. (TNG: "Genesis")

The Hypatia was referenced in the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion. Until recently, it was not known if the shuttle model or the full-size mock-up were repainted for the episode. Photos of the shuttlebay set, credit to Eric Alba, show that the full-size mock-up was renamed with the registry being carried over from its last use as the Curie. [1] [2]
