SC-4 (registry SC-04) was the designation of a Type 18H shuttlecraft assigned to Captain Typhuss James Kira in 2380.

This type of shuttle was similar to the type 9 shuttlecraft, but more streamlined. (Star Trek: Intrepid)


In 2380, Admiral Kathryn Janeway gave it to Captain Typhuss James Kira on stardate 146 140.147 142, for doing a mission on stardate 145 139.146 141.

The shuttlecraft was built at Utopia Planitia shipyards in 2380. The SC-4 is Typhuss's personal shuttlecraft and he is allowed to own it on Admiral Janeway's orders. When Typhuss was promoted to Vice Admiral in 2388, SC-4 was still his personal shuttlecraft. (Star Trek: Intrepid)


Shuttle cockpit

The shuttle was capable of achieving the speed of at least warp 6. It was equipped with deflector shields and several advanced anti-Borg technologies developed by the crew of Voyager in the alternate timeline before reaching Earth in 2394, including stealth technology and a ablative armor generator.

The shuttle is equipped with ablative hull armor and a stealth like cloaking system which would make the shuttlecraft invisible. It is armed with type 5 phasers, quantum torpedoes and photon torpedoes.

The shielding is capable of withstanding substantial enemy bombardment yet not retard the maneuvering ability or weapons capability of the vessel on which the armor is installed. Weapons fire is easily absorbed by the ablative armor.

The shuttlecraft includes a defensive shield that is virtually impenetrable to both Klingon and Borg weapons although not to Borg-locating scans.

The interior is entered through a large hatch built into the stern of the shuttle, and includes a variety of controls and monitoring stations for all of the ship's vital functions. Located on the underside of the main hull are a series of transporter emitters, allowing the occupant to beam into or out of the vessel.

In 2380, B'Elanna Torres upgraded the SC-4 under orders from Captain Kira, it has higher yield photon torpedoes, quantum torpedoes and enhanced targeting sensors. B'Elanna also enhanced the warp drive, the SC-4 can reach the speeds of warp 9. The shuttle was upgraded again to reach the speed of warp 9.5 and again to reach the speed of warp 9.8.
