Ferengi shuttle

In starship classification, a shuttlecraft or shuttle or glider, was a type of auxiliary craft typically attached to a starship or a starbase. Most shuttles were short-range transports, possessing only impulse drive or a limited warp capability. Utilization of shuttlecraft was common for most spacefaring civilizations, especially for situations where the transporter could not be used for landings or where such technology did not yet exist.

Shuttlecraft ranged in size from the larger, longer-range, and more versatile types, such as runabouts, to the small, short-range types commonly known as shuttlepods. Most Starfleet shuttlecraft from the 23rd century onward had warp nacelles, indicating warp capability.
