Class: Type 7 shuttlecraft
Registry: 05
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2369)

The Feynman was a Federation type 7 shuttlecraft that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-24th century, attached to the USS Enterprise-D. It was shuttlecraft 05.

In 2367, Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge and Lieutenant Reginald Barclay piloted this shuttle to investigate a Cytherian probe disrupting the operation of the Argus Array. The probe sent a beam to the shuttle which knocked Barclay unconscious and later caused his IQ to increase exponentially. (TNG: "The Nth Degree")

In 2369, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Doctor Beverly Crusher, and Lieutenant Worf flew the Feynman to a trading outpost near the border of the Cardassian Union in order to secure passage to Celtris III aboard DaiMon Solok's Ferengi vessel. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I")


Background information

The Feynman was named for physicist Richard Feynman. The name was misspelled as Feyman on the exterior of the craft due to a mistake made by the art department (Star Trek Encyclopedia). It was also mispronounced in the episode as FAIN-man, when the correct pronunciation is FINE-man.

Its interior was represented by that of a type 6 shuttlecraft in "Chain of Command, Part I". The fate of the Feynman was not known, as both Crusher and Worf were retrieved by Will Riker in another shuttlecraft.

The Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion identified the shuttle used in the episode TNG: "The Nth Degree" as the Feynman.
