Crafting the Delta Flyer
Can I use a Runabout to complete the "Crafting the Delta Flyer" daily missions? Is it worth purchasing a runabout? After I get a Delta Flyer, what else are they good for?
Bonus question: What use are Captain's yachts?
All answers gratefully received.

You can use for this misson any kind of small vessel. Fighter, shuttels and runabouts.

You can use any shuttle craft for this mission.

If you want the Delta Flyer then its worth purchasing the Runabout. However you could do The Vault mission and get a free Type-8 Shuttle then do the Delta Flyer missions with that.

The Captain's yacht is just another type of shuttle craft and its pretty good. I use that on my main char and love it.

The Captains Yacht is a veteran item. Do you really belive, he would ask, if he would be at leat 300 days in game? ;)

You're absolutely right, only it's 400 days (a year and 2 months, approx.); I've only been in the game about 5 to 6 weeks.
I have purchased a runabout, and have now completed 2 missions in it: The Vault (which was really cool; vintage Trek), and day 1 of getting a Delta Flyer. Things are coming together.
Thank you to everyone who replied.

not to hijack this thread but on the crafted delta flyer, there is an item that's supposed to spawn the pet version of it on ships equipped with it, only problem is i can't seems to equip this item on ANY of the starships i have up to captain level ships at least...

is there something i am missing?

You don't equip it in a device slot--you just need to have it in your inventory and then it becomes available to drag into your space power tray.

ah that explains it... i was puzzled by that for a while

much appreciated.

Don't even need it on the power tray, just right click and choose Use and it will deploy while in space.

When I crafted my Flyer I did not get the pet but I got it as a Ship Emote if you will. I can select it from the powers list and bring it to my bar... How odd.

As for the Runabout: If you intend to make a Delta Flyer you do not need a Runabout. The free shuttle is fine. All you do is scan anomalies until you get it done. It is not like you should be fighting in it anyway. I would hold off on doing the Vault until I had my Delta though.
