SC-4 was the designation of a Starfleet Command shuttlecraft used by Admiral Kathryn Janeway of an alternate 2404 in her plan to alter history. Equipping the shuttle with a chrono deflector stolen from Korath, Janeway generated a temporal rift to the Delta Quadrant of the year 2378, where she successfully infiltrated the Borg Unicomplex and delivered a neurolytic pathogen to cripple the Collective. This allowed USS Voyager to use a Borg transwarp conduit to return to the Alpha Quadrant sixteen years before they would have without Admiral Janeway's intervention.

The shuttle was capable of achieving the speed of warp 6. It was equipped with deflector shields and several advanced anti-Borg technologies developed by the crew of Voyager in the alternate timeline before reaching Earth in 2394, including stealth technology, an ablative armor generator, transphasic torpedoes, as well as a neural interface and synaptic transceiver, all of which Admiral Janeway shared with the crew of Voyager in 2378. (VOY: "Endgame")

This type of shuttle was similar to the class 2 shuttle of the 24th century, but more streamlined. According to a production sketch of this shuttle by Rick Sternbach, dated 02-01, the SC-4 was an uprated Type-18H shuttle. It had nanotech molecular armor plating, hot-ready filament phasers, and conformal defense shield grid (embedded). [1]
