NCC-1701\5A was the registry of a Federation aqua-shuttle that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-23rd century, attached to the starship USS Enterprise. The shuttle's weapons included at least two phasers, using a power pack as an energy source.
The aquashuttle was attacked by a sur-snake, and eventually destroyed. During the final moments, McCoy and Clayton were thrown clear. Kirk and Spock, however, were not as fortunate, and were taken down in the shuttle, by the sur-snake.
