Vehicle replicator

Replicating a shuttlecraft

A vehicle replicator was a large-scale replicator that was able to quickly "create any means of transport", including shuttlecraft.

The USS Protostar was equipped with such a replicator in its shuttlebay. The vehicle replicator worked by stringing together individual replicated components at a time, providing audio updates for each ten percent of completion. (PRO: "Starstruck") It was capable of building escape shuttles as well as land vehicles like the Runaway. (PRO: "Dream Catcher")

The Diviner managed to hack into the vehicle replicator and create a replica of his Drednok while the Protostar was fractured in time which interfered with Dal's plan to use the vehicle replicator to build a warp matrix to fix the proto-core. Although Dred 2 was blown out into space, after the anomaly was fixed, a partially built version of him was left lying beside the replicator. (PRO: "Time Amok")

As part of the rescue mission to Tars Lamora, the vehicle replicator was used to create a perfect replica of Zero's containment suit for Murf. (PRO: "A Moral Star, Part 1")

In order to escape from the Protostar before its destruction, the crew used the vehicle replicator to create a bare-bones shuttle for themselves. However, due to a lack of time to build a full shuttle, the shuttle lacked seats or proper navigation. (PRO: "Supernova, Part 2")

In 2385, the vehicle replicator on the Protostar from an altered timeline was used by Jankom Pog to build a new and improved containment suit for Zero after their physical form began to fall apart. (PRO: "Ascension, Part II")

The Protostar's vehicle replicator was later used by Hologram Janeway to replicate a ship at Ilthuran's specifications for Vice Admiral Janeway, Chakotay, The Doctor, and Wesley Crusher to use to rescue the young Protostar crew. (PRO: "Touch of Grey")
