“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”

Winston Churchill


The USS Chin'toka boasts an expansive range of auxiliary craft for performing transport tasks and various other mission functions. She is equipped with five Type 7 shuttles, six Type 9 shuttles, five Type 11 shuttles, six Argo class shuttles and three Danube runabouts.

The USS Chin'toka is also equipped with a large complement of ten Peregrine-class Attack fighters and six Workbees.

Type-7 Shuttlecraft

The Type 7 is a short to medium range shuttlecraft requiring two pilots to operate it. The Type 7 is slightly larger (8.5 metres long compared to the Type 6's 6 metres long) than the Type 6 shuttle and can therefore accommodate more passengers. A standard Type 7 shuttle is not equipped with armament but some uprated versions are equipped with two Type-5 phaser emitters.

Type-7 Shuttlecraft

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: 2 flight crew; 6 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 8.5 meters
    • Beam: 3.6 meters
    • Height: 2.7 meters
  • Mass: 3.96 metric tons
  • Performance: Warp 1.75 (48hrs), Warp 2 (36hrs)
  • Armament: None (standard),2 Type-V phaser emitters (optional)

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of five of these shuttles.

Type 9 Shuttlecraft

These are a more streamlined design, having a pointed front and larger warp nacelles, however it has less internal volume. It can be crewed by a single person if necessary but is outfitted for two pilots and four passengers. It has the greatest range of the shuttlecraft aboard Chin'toka, with a maximum speed of warp 4. It is specifically designed for deep-space scouting missions, even though they are actually smaller than the Type 6.

Type-9 Shuttlecraft

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: 2 flight crew; 4 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 8.45 meters
    • Beam: 3.8 meters
    • Height: 2.95 meters
  • Mass: 1.85 metric tons
  • Performance: Warp 4
  • Armament: Two type-4 phaser emitters, 1 type-5 phaser emitter, 2 microtorpedo tubes

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of six of these shuttles.

Type 11 Shuttlecraft

A far more streamlined design than the type-9, one of the most recent addition to Starfleet's array of shuttlecraft. Based on a runabout's design, the Type-11 is twice the size of the Type-9, boasting a dorsal docking clamp and airlock. Type-11s are more heavily armed and shielded than the older shuttlecraft. It also is equipped with a transporter.

Type-11 Shuttlecraft

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: 2 flight crew; 10 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 16.5 meters
    • Beam: 8.8 meters
    • Height: 3.81 meters
  • Mass: 27.20 metric tons
  • Performance: Warp 6
  • Armament: Four type-5 phaser emitters; two microtorpedo launchers

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of five of these shuttles.

Argo-class Shuttlecraft

The Argo Class Shuttle is one of the newest class of shuttle in the Federation, This shuttle is known to be one of the marines favourites. The Argo was designed with recessed warp nacelles and fold-down wings. These wings were designed to assist in atmospheric maneuverability. The shuttle was equipped with an all-terrain buggy that could transport up to three passengers over rugged terrain. The buggy was secured aboard the shuttle's cargo hold via wheel clamps. The shuttlecraft could also be remote controlled from a device on the buggy.

Argo-class Shuttle

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: 2 flight crew; 10 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 14.50 meters
    • Beam: 8.80 meters
    • Height: 6.10 meters
  • Performance: Cruising 5, Maximum 7.5 (sustainable for 6 hours)
  • Armament: 2 Type VI phaser banks, 1 Micro-photon torpedo tubes with 20 torpedoes

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of six of these shuttles.

Danube-class Runabout

The Danube features a front cabin for the crew of pilot, co-pilot/navigator and two mission specialists. A two person transporter is at the rear of the cabin, with swappable mission modules aft of this. The modular nature of the Danube allows it to be configured for missions such as personnel transport, cargo transport, scientific research, tactical, medical, etc.

Danube-class Runabout

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: Up to 40 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 23.1 meters
    • Beam: 13.7 meters
    • Height: 5.4 meters
  • Mass: 158.7 metric tons
  • Performance: Warp 4
  • Armament: Two type-6 phaser emitters; 2 microtorpedo launchers

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of three of these runabouts. The Holana and two unnamed craft.

Peregrine-class Attack Fighter

Peregrinefighters.jpg

The Peregrine Fighter was Starfleet's first attempt at a heavy fighter design. It was developed in 2367 and designed to help in fleet actions by causing the enemy vessels to split their fire amongst multiple targets, whilst delivering a powerful punch itself. Capable of a top cruise speed of warp 4.5 it has a similar speed to that of a Valkyrie, allowing it to operate short distances away from its homebase or carrier vessel. However, it is common practice for these vessels to be used at impulse.

Although these ships come in several different models, Starfleet uses the two-man heavy fighter variant. This design has two type U+ pulse phaser cannons as well as the type IV phaser. Optionally six full-sized photon/quantum torpedoes may be used in addition to this - although this has an adverse effect on the ships maneuverability.

Peregrine-class Attack Fighter

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: Up to 40 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 18 meters
    • Beam: 17.5 meters
    • Height: 5.82 meters
  • Performance: Warp 4 (cruising), Warp 4.5 (maximum), Warp 6.1 (for 6hrs)
  • Armament: Two Micro-Torpedo Launchers, Ten Micro-Quantum Torpedoes, Type IV Phaser Array, Two Type U+ Micro-Pulse

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of ten of these fighters.

Workbees

Workbee small.jpg

The "Workbee", or more accurately a cargo management unit (or CMU), is a small utility craft in use by the Federation from the mid-23rd century onwards. The CMU is a single-occupant vehicle with seating for the pilot only. Generally, the pilot needs to be spacesuited, especially if the pilot is planning to perform a space walk. The front of the CMU features several large windows. The craft also has a large headlight at its extreme forward end for illuminating a work area.

As the CMU is primarily a maintenance craft, it can be equipped with a variety of tools, including a set of dual remote manipulator arms called the Grabber Sled. The CMU can also serve as a tug for cargo modules with the Cargo-Train Attachment.

The CMU can operate both in the vacuum of space and within the atmospheric and gravitational conditions of a starship cargo bay or planetary surface.
