There is no Type 6 shuttle in the game. There is a Type 8, which is a deathtrap. The Type 8 (a.k.a Powder Keg) has 4000 hull strength and 3 crew. No BOffs, which means you get no abilities but your captain skills. Don't get me wrong, I think the Type 8 would be a better noobie starter ship than a Miranda. But it is a deathtrap.

The Toron and Runabout have identical stats, which is why I made the comparison. The only difference is the ability (jam targeting sensors vs. tractor beam).
