Independence is equipped with one main shuttlebay and two smaller auxiliary shuttle bays. The ship carries a complement of 4 type-18 shuttlepods, 1 type-10 shuttlecraft, and 2 work bees.

Type 10 Shuttlecraft

With an armored hull, high combat effectiveness including signal intelligence jamming devices, and a primary power grid powered by the impulse engines that made no use of antimatter (and thus allows the shuttles to enter areas that would normally collapse the dilithium matrix of a warp core), the type-10 shuttle is a well-rugged and capable craft. The type 10 shuttle aboard Independence-B is a newer refit version first developed in 2394 by the crew of the USS Veritas that employs an interchangeable equipment module system to operate more effectively for the needs of Starfleet Search and Rescue operations.
