Waverider Support Craft

An auxiliary craft for Luna Class Reconnaissance Cruisers and Rhode Island-class Survey Vessels, the Waverider shuttle is designed for close quarters examination and survey of planetary bodies by science personnel. The size of a large Shuttle or small Runabout, the Waverider is essentially a mobile laboratory and not designed for long-term solo operations. Though not equipped with a Warp Drive of its own, its powerful Impulse Thrusters make it very agile both in space and atmosphere.

The Waverider, like Captain's Yachts on previous designs, is stored a recessed port in the ventral part of the saucer just forward of the main sensor dome. Access to the Waverider is provided by a hatchway inside the ship and a ladder-equipped hard umbilical.
