Vessel of the class, at warp

The Ferengi shuttle (also sometimes referred to as a Ferengi pod) was a fast warp-capable shuttlecraft used as an auxiliary vehicle and utilized by prominent businessmen in the Ferengi Alliance during the 24th century.

History

Introduced prior to 2366, these vessels were the standard shuttle-type found aboard D'Kora-class Marauders. In 2366, one of these vessels – with two Ferengi on it – became trapped in the Delta Quadrant following the collapse of the Barzan wormhole. (TNG: "The Price")

These vessels were also simultaneously owned on an individual basis: Grand Nagus Zek had a personal shuttle, as did FCA Liquidator Brunt and Ferengi entrepreneurs Gaila and Quark. (DS9: "The Nagus", etc). These shuttles were also known to exist in the mirror universe. (DS9: "The Emperor's New Cloak")

In its initial appearance in "The Price" a Ferengi shuttle was depicted to be of similar size with a Starfleet type 15 shuttlepod. The same Ferengi shuttle was seen again in VOY: "False Profits" as a much larger craft. This is also the case with most of the other appearances indicating the shuttle to be only slightly smaller than a Starfleet runabout.

Technical data

Ferengi shuttles were extremely fast and durable warp-capable vessels, fast enough to outrun Romulan interceptors and capable of flying half way through the Milky Way Galaxy before even needing a maintenance checkup. It was possible to exceed the maximum safe cruising speed by 0.3 warp factors. (DS9: "Little Green Men") These vessels were known to be outfitted with phasers and deflector shields. (VOY: "False Profits")

Interior design

Typically these shuttles had a small control area – cockpit or bridge – in the forward section, with rudimentary sleeping quarters, and cargo hold in the aft section. (DS9: "Little Green Men") They were also equipped with such creature comforts as a waste extraction unit and a replicator. (VOY: "False Profits") The shuttle had room to transport from as few as two, to as many as eight occupants. (DS9: "The Magnificent Ferengi")
