The Galileo (NCC-1701⁄7) was a Federation class F shuttlecraft that was in service to Starfleet in the mid-23rd century, attached to the USS Enterprise. Galileo was the successor to a shuttle of the same name and hull number. (TOS: "The Immunity Syndrome")
In 2267, it was used to transport the critically-ill Nancy Hedford from Epsilon Canaris III. The shuttle was inexplicably pulled off course by the Companion, and forced down on a planetoid in the Gamma Canaris region. Kirk, Spock, and McCoy discovered Zefram Cochrane alive and well, and Hedford remained behind when the Galileo left, as she merged with the Companion. No record of this encounter was made at the request of Cochrane. (TOS: "Metamorphosis")
This Galileo was nearly lost following an encounter with a space amoeba creature on stardate 4307. Spock, motivated by the loss of the USS Intrepid, piloted the Galileo into the creature with the intention of destroying it. The explosion threw both ship and shuttle clear. Spock later returned to the Enterprise. (TOS: "The Immunity Syndrome")
Stock shots from "The Galileo Seven" were used to represent a shuttle stolen from a starbase in "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield", even though the Galileo's markings were clearly visible. The model was recreated as a CGI for the remastered print of "Journey to Babel" in 2007. It shows the shuttle on approach, landing, and being prepped for launch.
