Ferengi shuttle

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

Shuttlecraft range 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.
