Poll of the Week: A Selection of Shuttlecrafts

Share this:

There’s no denying that transporters are nifty bits of machinery. They can transmit a person or thing hundreds of miles, to arrive safely (usually) at a given destination. However, it seems like these transporters can be easily beaten. Ion storms, power surges, combat shields and dozens of other factors have been known to render them inoperable. When they inevitably go wrong, there’s only one way to travel: Yes, I’m talking about shuttlecraft.

Say what you will about them, they’re handy to have aboard in a pinch, and can be used for so many different tasks. Need to be towed out of a nucleonic particle nebula? Or how about rescuing stranded crew on a Class-L planet? Over the years, different designs have come forth, each with their own spirit and legacies. This Poll of the Week asks you to think back, and choose your favorite small Starfleet crafts. Was the relatively primitive shuttlepod from Enterprise a winner in your mind, or do you prefer the beefy functionality of a runabout?
