Excalibur Auxiliary Craft

Short Range

The Type-9 Personnel Shuttle is a long-range craft capable of traveling at high warp for extended periods of time due to new advances in variable geometry warp physics. Making its debut just before the launch of the Intrepid-class, this shuttle type is ideal for scouting and recon missions, but is well suited to perform many multi-mission tasks.

Long Range

The Type XI-S shuttlecraft is an advanced piece of technology, containing bioneural circuitry as a standard, as well as a compact power plant that still provides excellent cruising and maximum speeds. The cockpit is an individual compartment, separate from the rest of the shuttle, which a break from Starfleet's standard shuttle design.

Specification Image
  • Crew: 2, plus 10 passengers
  • Length: 14.64m
  • Beam: 5.26m
  • Height: 5.25m
  • Decks: 1
  • Armaments: 4 Type V phaser banks, 1 Micro-photon torpedo tubes with 20 torpedoes
  • Deflectors: 8 symmetrical subspace graviton field grids
  • Hull: Single light Duranium/Tritanium
  • Warp Speeds: Cruising 4, Maximum 7 (sustainable for 3 hours)
  • Quantity: 2, The Lyonel and The Bedevere




Arrow Class Runabouts utilize the same "modular" construction in regard to interior makeup. They are compatible with standard Starfleet multi-use compartment modules and are much easier than even the conventional Runabouts being that the warp engines and wings feature a "gull" design which swing open for easy access to the interior. The compartment modules fit neatly inside and lock into place for optimum refit capability. The Arrow class is slightly longer than the standard Danube. This affords a somewhat roomier cockpit area, more work stations, and a larger crew complement.

Specification Image
  • Crew: 4, plus 12 passengers
  • Length: 26m
  • Beam: 16.1m (Including wingspan)
  • Height: 5.4m
  • Decks: 1
  • Armaments: 2 Type IX phaser banks, 1 Micro-quantam torpedo tube with 40 torpedoes
  • Deflectors: 8 symmetrical subspace graviton field grids
  • Hull: Single light Duranium/Tritanium
  • Warp Speeds: Cruising 6, Maximum 8 (sustainable for 8 hours)
  • Quantity: 2, The White Hart and The Questing Beast




The Argo Class Shuttle is one of the newest class of shuttle in the Federation. 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.

Specification Image
  • Crew: 4
  • Length: 14.50m
  • Beam: 8.80(including wingspan)
  • Height: 6.10m
  • Decks: 1
  • Armaments: 2 Type VI phaser banks, 1 Micro-photon torpedo tubes with 20 torpedoes
  • Deflectors: 6 symmetrical subspace graviton field grids
  • Hull: Single light Duranium/Tritanium
  • Warp Speeds: Cruising 5, Maximum 7.5 (sustainable for 6 hours)
  • Quantity: 2, The Lancelot and The Gawain




Maintenance

A light industrial manipulator, with room for two. The Sphinx Workpod is used mainly as an Engineering shuttle to repair anything on the outside. Along with the Work Bee, the various Sphinx Workpod types are a common site in any large Federation shipbuilding facility. Intended never to be far from its parent facility, the Workpod was designed to allow greater user hands-on control of the various functions involved with day-to-day construction and repair. With more tools then the Work Bee, the Sphinx M1A and M2A are used primarily to manipulate spatial hardware during construction.

Specification Image
  • Crew: 2
  • Length: 6.2m
  • Beam: 2.6m
  • Height: 2.5m
  • Decks: 1
  • Armaments: None
  • Hull: Single light Duranium/Tritanium
  • Warp Speeds: None
  • Quantity: 2
