Part of the complement of Enterprise NX-01 were the two Shuttlepods. These were small auxiliary craft used for the transport of personnel and cargo between the starship and the surface of planets. Teleportation technology was in its infancy in the 22nd Century and not entirely reliable, so it made sense to use shuttlepods wherever possible. These vessels could carry six passengers and had retractable wings, impulse drive and plasma cannons. They had a hatch on port and starboard sides and a docking port on the dorsal surface. Stored in a shuttlebay beneath the starship, they were launched through a ventral hatch by an extending hydraulic ram.
