Operator: Starfleet
Status: Destroyed (2369)

The Fermi was a Federation type 6 shuttlecraft that was in service to Starfleet in the mid-24th century, attached to the USS Enterprise-D. It was shuttlecraft 16.

The Fermi was used to ferry supplies to the surface of Tagra IV during the Enterprise-D's relief mission there in 2369. (TNG: "True Q")

Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Ensign Ro Laren, botanist Keiko O'Brien, and Guinan took the Fermi to Marlonia. Upon their return, the Fermi was trapped in a molecular reversion field and destroyed. The crew transported out, but were turned into twelve-year-olds after passing through the field. (TNG: "Rascals")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 153) stated the Fermi was "named for Enrico Fermi, the 20th-century Italian-American physicist who developed the first nuclear fission reactor." The Encyclopedia mistakenly stated that the Fermi was shuttlecraft 09.
