Aquashuttle. Sleek underwater reconnaissance vehicle carried aboard some Federation starships. The aquashuttle was specially designed to travel from a starship's hangar deck through space to a planet possessing a watery surface. There the craft could travel easily on the surface of the water or underwater as a submersible. The ship had a crew complement of about 9 persons and was equipped with two forward mounted phaser emitters. In 2269, on stardate 5499.9, an aquashuttle with registry number NCC-1701/7 was used by the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise to explore the surface of the planet Argo. During that mission, the aquashuttle encountered a large and powerful sur-snake resulting in the craft's destruction. ("The Ambergris Element").
