Question Favorite Small Vessel in Trek?

What is your favorite small vessel in Trek?

Since I don't consider DS9's Defiant to be "small," I would have to say the runabouts we saw on that series.

Other choices include the Jenolan, the Vulcan Shuttle from ST:TMP, the Captain's Yacht from ST:INS, and the Galileo-type shuttles from TOS, among others.

You can also consider small vessels from other races in Trek.

Hands down - the Runabout.

I always wanted one from the moment it debuted on DS9 and I want to see what the options list is from the production line!!

Yeah, Runabout definitely.

Delta Flyer I guess would come in second place, but the idea that it's tricked out with Borg tech gives me the willies! What if it turned around and started assimilating me.

I have to say the Delta Flyer. She had more features than a normal shuttle, but was small enough to still not quite be a roundabout. Plus she looked sexy

LOL! That's a great way of looking at it. I think I would prefer to rely on Federation tech, as well.

I would have liked a Type-7 shuttlecraft (TNG Season 1-4). Those were so cool!

I liked the runabouts....small starships in their own right.

I also liked the Merchantman freighter like we saw in Star Trek III, the one destroyed by the Klingon Bird of Prey.

The DY-100.

It's an original Matt Jeffries design, ion powered with "sleeper" chambers for suspended animation. As such, I find it to be the most scientifically plausible of all of Trek's ships.
