not sure what you are asking, but shuttles are used for shuttle content. Missions where a starship can't be used. You can get shuttles with a requisition when the mission comes up or for something better than the "stock" version you can pick up different ones (including fighters) from the Zen Store or by spending Lobi Crystals. If memory serves, there are three missions involving shuttles thus far including one that is located in the PVE queue.

Right now shuttles are very limited to play. You cant do much with them, and they should get more content, and events dedicated to them like maybe races, or some cover up missions!

And if you get really good at the game, you can try a few elite STF on hard mode to see how you rate.
Chingachgook told me, Don't try to understand them; and don't try to make them understand you. For they are a breed apart and make no sense.

Shuttles are part of a "small ships" class, along with fighters and some support ships. They are basically smaller versions of the starships, with the same weapons and equipment as the bigger ships, but with fewer slots.

You can use a small ship as your pirmary ship if you want to, although you wont live very long in most of them. There are, however, a couple of missions that require you to use them.

You will be given the simple shuttle for free if you want it, but can buy a different small ship if you want to. The runabout is pretty cheap, and is much more robust than the basic shuttle. They also sell some for zen on the store site. Same as the other ship classes, some are free, some are in-game money, some are rl money, use what you want.

In theory, can't you do this already? I've never tried, but shouldn't you be able to be flying your shuttle and challenge someone else flying theirs?

Or does it automatically move both of you to your spaceship when you zone in?

RedditAlert hosts shuttle PvP events from time to time.

I think their latest event was particularly interesting: 1 cruiser vs 10(?) shuttles

I don't think you even need to be in fleet to sign up (they seem like a very inclusive bunch), just keep an eye /r/sto for fun times.

I'd be perfectly willing to think about grabbing a Delta Class Shuttle if there seemed to be any good reason to do so at some point.
