The Inspection Pod seen in Broken Bow was a small two-seater vessel used by engineering staff to examine and service the external hull of a starship. One of the supplementary craft stored aboard the Enterprise NX-01, it was able to use an external docking port and therefore was more practical than a shuttle that would need to be tractored in and launched through a hatch.
