Type 9 shuttle by thefirstfleet Type 9 shuttle by thefirstfleet
I was working on this in the last couple of days. This poor thing never got the spotlight it deserved, became overshadowed by the spiffy Delta Flyer later on. The Type 9 is also infamous for being the first ship to go beyond Warp 10, turning Janeway and Paris into iguanas.



Models by me

Well...at least the Flyer can't make the claim that it went beyond Warp 10, which, iguanas or not, is still a pretty impressive note on the ol' resume, eh? :D

 Weren't they more like salamanders? And of course the Type 9 was overshadowed by the Flyer. She's not as big or bad after all.

I still like this ship. Looks sleek and fast.

 I agree. Sternbach (I think he was the designer for this one) headed in the right direction with the Type 9.

So did Commander 'Crash' Chakotay happen to blow this shuttle up? 

Awesome work, per usual. <3

Do you have any plans to release the shuttle along with few other new models you made?

Beautiful shot. I love the way you have staged this. I've always liked how curvaceous this shuttle is and how good she looks in motion.

It does raise a question, though. Just how many freaking shuttles does Voyager have? Plus they've got The Flyer AND Neelix's ship shoved in there! Where are they putting all these ships?! That bugged me even as a kid.

I remember the episode!   

Just one thing that's always bugged me, since I was a little kid (the 70's) ---On a shuttlecraft, where the heck is the TOILET?!?  I assume somewhere in back, but they never showed it!  Don't tell me the crew of 6 just sat there for days on end without a restroom!

No, not by the 23rd Century they didn't!  I THINK there was a foldaway toilet or something.  In Star Trek V (the movie we all love to forget and pretend never happened!) Kirk pulled a toilet out of a wall just to sit down, when he, Spock and McCoy were stuck in their own brig.  For some strange reason, the lavs are all over the place on every deck on the blueprints, BUT they are almost never shown on any of the shows!  The only series that showed the bathrooms was Voyager.  They also appeared in two ST movies, but never on the OS.

Nice ship. Though I don't think I ever saw the episode you speak of. Then again I was 9 when this was on the air.

It's one of the weirdest episodes ever. The crew finds some super dilithium that can push a ship beyond Warp 10. They rig a shuttle with it, and instead of doing an aotupilot test run, they, of course, put the captain and the pilot in. The shuttle goes into infinite speed, but with a side-effect: infinite time. Janeway and Paris complete a full Human evolutionary cycle, becoming lizard things, which the Doctor can, of course, fix in the episode's last five minutes.

We don't talk about that; it never happened.  Also it was salamanders, not iguanas.

Oh yes it is... At least Genesis was talking about reactivating dormant or repurposed genes instead of going warp 10 causing rapid change into a salamander. Which at one point causes Tom to become deathly allergic to water... and some Fly level body horror.

Nope, never happened. Even the writers say that it doesn't exist. Voyager Season 2 only has 25 episodes and for some reason there's no episode 15.

I don't give a rusted FRAK what the spazloid retard writers say,  IT HAPPENED
Unless you can obliterate every tape, dvd,  an internet review of this abortion,  IT HAPPENED. Stuffing your fingers in ears and humming real loud, is a FAIL.

No I mean that it's been effectively been removed from canon by the writers. 
Ergo, it does not exist in the timeline.
