Physical arrangement Edit
Externally similar in design, though much larger than, the Kelvin-type shuttles used decades before, this type of shuttlecraft had two nacelles attached to the main body of the shuttlecraft by elongated nacelle pylons which housed two of the shuttles four small impulse drives. The other two were located on the aft dorsal end of the craft. The engine that powered these drives was located in an aft compartment that was sealed from the cockpit/passenger section by a hatchway. Shuttles could be accessed from the starboard side by a door located just aft the cockpit, and two small windows were located aft of the doors. This shuttle type also had three retractable landing gear and feature a small ventral door.
The shuttles were equipped with primary and secondary thrusters. These thrusters were located on both sides of the shuttle. This shuttlecraft type had a threat assessment system, which was susceptible to interference if the foe fired antimatter missiles. Equipment included in these shuttles included black hole analyzers, extreme ultraviolet spectrometer, near infrared mapping spectrometer, energetic particle spectrometer, magma sensors, and sensors for mass spectrometry, gas chromatography, and radio spectrum. These vessels were, additionally, equipped with a ventral weapons array. These vehicles were, lastly, equipped with attenuators.
The cockpit contained two chairs and was separated from the aft compartment by a small hatch. The main compartment had fold down "jump" seats located along the outer walls.
Layout A Edit
Layout B Edit
The main compartment could be equipped with two rows, one two seats wide and the other three seats wide, of forward facing seats. The fold down seats located along the outer walls were still in place when this arrangement was used. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
Shuttles of this type Edit
Background information Edit
In the film, for the volcano sequence on Nibiru, Shuttle 1 was represented by the CGI model for Shuttle 7. Dialogue was used to identify this vessel as Shuttle 1. Interior displays in Shuttle 1 showed "04NCC", which may have been why labels included as part of the Kre-O Star Trek kit "Spock's Volcano Mission" identify Shuttle 1 as Shuttle 4, and do not include the name Warrant.
