Mounted in a recessed docking port in the underside of the primary hull, the Sovereign Class captain’s yacht serves dual purposes. A situation to be dealt with by the captain of a starship does not always require the entire ship to accompany him or her, or the ship may have a more important mission to accomplish. In these cases, the captain’s yacht provides a long-range craft that is capable enough to function without its primary vessel. Be it a simple excursion to get away from the stresses of command, or a run to retrieve or deliver VIPs, the yacht serves as an extendable arm of the Sovereign Class.
Facilities include six sleeping bunks and a comfortable passenger cabin. A replicator and flight couches provide for the needs of the passengers and a two-person transporter allows for beaming of personnel or cargo when needed. Atmospheric flight capabilities allow this shuttle type to land on planetary surfaces.
Note: While primarily the yacht type utilized on the Sovereign Class, this vessel can be found elsewhere. Unlike the Sovereign Class, however, other ship classes will not list this craft in their auxiliary craft complements.
