For another shuttlecraft with the registry NCC-170112, please see Copernicus (2269).

NCC-170112 was a Federation shuttlecraft that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-23rd century, attached to the USS Enterprise.

In 2269, when the Enterprise was studying a class M planet orbiting a binary sun, Harry Mudd stole Shuttlecraft 12 with Nurse Christine Chapel as a hostage. On the planet's surface, he intended to strand her forcing the Enterprise's crew to rescue her while he escaped in the shuttle. His plan backfired when a native rock beast crushed the vehicle with one of its feet. (TAS: "Mudd's Passion")

Background information Edit

The NCC-17014 and another shuttle in the Enterprise's shuttlebay were of the same design as NCC-170112.

There was no name for this shuttle printed on the hull, and was only referred to as "shuttlecraft" in the episode dialogue.

The shuttle was labeled as N.C.C.170112 or N.C.C.-170112 in some scenes.

The Copernicus seen in "The Slaver Weapon" was presumably the replacement shuttle for this shuttle, since both craft shared the same registry number.
