The Drake carries three two Type IX (also known as Class 2) shuttles, named the Tavistock, and the Portobelo and the Plymouth. They are fast and maneuverable, but definitely not built for comfort.  A third shuttle, the Plymouth, was originally part of the complement. As part of the attempt to escape from null-space the Plymouth was loaded with dilithium and destroyed by a quantum torpedo launched from the Drake in order to open a rift back to normal space.
The Type 9 possesses limited amenities, and though furnished for two pilots and four passengers, can be crewed by a single person if necessary. Their compact size has earned them a reputation for causing "Class Two Claustrophobia" at Starfleet Academy, due to a predilection for stress-testing cadets by sending a full crew of six on training missions that last several weeks. As one Starfleet officer quipped ''"you did not want to be around when they opened up that airlock"''.
