Shran contacts Jonathan Archer

Shran contacts Enterprise from his Andorian shuttle

The Andorian shuttle was a small auxiliary craft operated by the Andorians in the mid-22nd century.

The Andorian battle cruiser carried at least one of these craft in its shuttlebay. (ENT: "Proving Ground")

In a holographic program set in 2161, Thy'lek Shran owned an Andorian shuttle which he admitted was "slow". He piloted the craft to a rendezvous with Enterprise NX-01 and after he contacted the starship from his vessel, Shran's shuttle was brought aboard Enterprise. This task took five hours, a delay that frustrated Enterprise Commander T'Pol.

Upon returning to Enterprise from a mission in which an away team from the ship helped Shran rescue his daughter Talla from a gang of aliens on Rigel X, Archer arranged with Shran for the Andorian shuttle to remain on Enterprise until the ship was at a safe enough distance away from the alien gangsters, even though Shran said their ships were even slower than his own shuttle. However, the gangsters somehow indeed managed to catch up with Enterprise and, boarding the vessel, they noticed Shran's shuttle was still in the ship's launch bay. Consequently, they knew that, when Archer told them Shran and his daughter were no longer on the ship, he was lying. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages...")

In the final draft script of "These Are the Voyages...", Shran's Andorian shuttle was referred to as "a small, civilian shuttle."
