The Son'a shuttles were medium-sized auxiliary craft utilized by the Son'a. These vessels were equipped with transporters and an indeterminate type of torpedo.

Initially intended to be used to transport the Ba'ku off their planet's surface in 2375, two of these shuttles encountered difficulties when the Ba'ku village was surrounded by transport inhibitors. In response, they fired on the village, attempting to take out the inhibitors.

Unable to capture all of the escaping inhabitants, two of the shuttles returned to the planet the following day to launch several dozen Son'a drones. These drones, in turn, shot isolinear tags at the inhabitants, allowing the shuttles to transport them aboard. After capturing the inhabitants they transported them up to Ru'afo's flagship.

Three of these vessels later fired on the mountains that contained several caverns concealing the now-hidden Ba'ku, in an attempt to force them out into the open.

In all, Son'a shuttles were able to capture over one hundred of the Ba'ku. (Star Trek: Insurrection)

The Son'a shuttle was designed by John Eaves, who also described it as a Son'a fighter; the computer-generated model was built by Blue Sky/VIFX. For further information, see Son'a shuttle model.
