Initially intended to be used to transport the Ba'ku off the Ba'ku planet's surface in 2375, two of these shuttles encountered difficulties when the Ba'ku village was surrounded by transport inhibitors. In response, they fired on village, attempting to take out the inhibitors.
Unable to capture all of the escaping inhabitants, two of the shuttles returned to the planet the following day to launch several dozen Son'a drones. These drones, in turn, shot isolinear tags at the inhabitants, allowing the shuttles to transport them aboard. After capturing the inhabitants they transported them up to Ru'afo's flagship.
Three of these vessels later fired on the mountains that contained several caverns concealing the now-hidden Ba'ku, in an attempt to force them out into the open.
In all, Son'a shuttles were able to capture over one hundred of the Ba'ku. (Star Trek: Insurrection)
