The Verne (RS-47) was a Federation Type 6 shuttlecraft that was in service to Starfleet in the mid-24th century, attached to Relay Station 47.

In 2369, Lieutenant Aquiel Uhnari used the Verne to escape the relay station after her colleague's murder, but was captured by a Klingon patrol ship; a later search of the Verne uncovered a type 2 phaser set to kill. (TNG: "Aquiel")

The name Verne was not referred to in the dialogue or script, but was visible on the hull of the shuttlecraft.
The shuttlecraft was likely named for science fiction author Jules Verne, known for Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days.
