Nearly identical in appearance to the Kazon raider, these vessels are approximately the size of a Federation shuttlecraft. They are able to be operated by a crew of one, and are armed with three forward phaser banks and an aft photon torpedo launcher.
In 2372, Commander Chakotay's Type 8 shuttlecraft was engaged by a Kazon-Ogla fighter, piloted by Kar, in an unprovoked attack. Despite the Kazon's advantage, with the element of surprise, Chakotay was able to destroy the fighter with the shuttles phasers. (VOY: "Initiations")
One of these vessels, operated by the Trabe, was utilized in an attempted massacre of several Kazon first majes attending a conference of Sobras. The starship USS Voyager fired three photon torpedoes at it, forcing it to disengage. (VOY: "Alliances")
Tom Paris later stole one of these shuttles from a Kazon raider he was held prisoner aboard. Barely able to escape, he managed to get into Voyager's transporter range, moments before the shuttle's mothership destroyed it. (VOY: "Investigations")
