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. According to a deleted scene from "Chain of Command, Part II", the Feynman was recovered by the Enterprise. This shuttle was seen in a shuttlebay. It had the exterior shell of a type 6 shuttlecraft and the name was spelled as "Feyman". [1]

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