For the shuttle used by Vulcans in the 23rd century, please see long range shuttle.

The Vulcan shuttle was a type of shuttlecraft used by the Vulcans in the early 2150s. They were about two decks high, and had a warp-ring drive, similar to most Vulcan starships of the time. At least one was assigned to Suurok-class starships.

The Sh'Raan sent a shuttlecraft of this type to pick up Ambassador V'Lar from Enterprise in 2151. (ENT: "Fallen Hero")

This type of shuttle was also used as ground-based transportation, on Vulcan. In 2154, a shuttlecraft of this type transported Ambassador Soval to the Vulcan High Command building, which had an external landing pad. (ENT: "Awakening")

The Vulcan shuttle wasn't referred to in the final draft script of "Fallen Hero", in which the Sh'Raan itself was instead described as docking with Enterprise.
The Vulcan shuttle was designed by John Eaves. [1] An early script for the episode ENT: "Extinction" called for another style of 22nd century Vulcan shuttle, and although Eaves produced several sketches of the class, [2] it was written out of the episode by the time of filming.
