A space shuttle lifting off

Another shuttle launching

A space shuttle was a form of low-orbit spacecraft commonly launched from Earth during the 20th and 21st centuries.

The term "space shuttle" remained utilized well into the 23rd century, when in 2285, Spock was alerted by a public announcement at Starfleet Academy that his space shuttle would be leaving in fifteen minutes. His destination was the USS Enterprise. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)
