The Chaffee was a Federation Chaffee-type shuttlepod that was in service with Starfleet in the late 24th century, attached to the USS Defiant. It was shuttle 01.

In late 2374, Benjamin Sisko, Miles O'Brien and Julian Bashir used the Chaffee to enter the atmosphere of a Class L planet to rescue Lisa Cusak. The use of the pod was preferred because its power systems did not utilize antimatter, and made it possible for the pod to survive travel through the exotic energy field surrounding the planet.
