The Charger is a Flyer-class heavy shuttlecraft in service to Starfleet in the 24th century. The Charger was assigned to the USS Intrepid-A in 2378. (Star Trek: Intrepid episode: "Launch")

Construction historyEdit

The Charger was designed in collaboration between B'Elanna Torres, Tom Paris, Tuvok, Harry Kim, Typhuss James Kira and Seven of Nine in the year 2378. Following a brainstorming session with Paris, Tuvok, Typhuss, Seven of Nine, Harry Kim, and B'Elanna Torres, the design of the Charger was finalized, and construction of the ship began. (Star Trek: Intrepid episodes: "Launch", "The Intendant's Lure"; Star Trek: Intrepid movie: "Horror in Space")


The Charger was assigned to the Sovereign-class USS Intrepid in 2378 and was added to the Intrepid's shuttle complement and in doing so became the starship's fastest shuttle. (Star Trek: Intrepid)


The Charger was designed to handle environments that would be too hazardous for a standard shuttlecraft. The Charger was designed to withstand the atmosphere of a gas giant.

The Charger has the same cockpit configuration as the Delta Flyer II

Like the Delta Flyer and Delta Flyer II the flight controls of the Charger resemble those of 20th-century aircraft. The Charger has the same cockpit configuration as the Delta Flyer II. The top speed of the Charger in 2378 was warp 7.2.

In early 2380, B'Elanna Torres upgraded the Charger's top speed from warp 7.2 to warp 8.2. This was done by upgrading the warp core. The Charger was upgraded by B'Elanna to carry quantum torpedoes. The only Flyer-class shuttlecraft with these capabilities is the Charger. Among the many weapon features included type 5 phasers, photon torpedoes and quantum torpedoes.

Like the Delta Flyer and Delta Flyer II, the Charger featured unimatrix shielding, retractable warp nacelles, an ultra-aerodynamic tetraburnium alloy hull and parametallic hull plating. Like the Delta Flyer II, the Charger featured impulse thrusters, which gave the Charger greater sublight speed. Unlike any other Federation shuttlecraft before it, the Charger was a blend of Starfleet and Borg technology, and was designed to perform in situations that were deemed too hazardous for standard shuttlecraft.
