The Type-18 shuttlepod is a small warp-capable craft developed alongside the Type-10 shuttle for classes of starship like the Saber and Defiant to provide a hardened craft for use in situations where a small armed vessel is necessary. It is a cramped vessel with space for just two people, but it is highly maneuverable and has better range than its earlier cousins. It has a microtorpedo launcher mounted on the top of the hull, as well as several phaser emitters, along with ablative armor and relatively powerful shields for a ship of its size.
