I seem to have missed this in patch notes, how is this done?

Fun stuff to do in a Shuttle:
1) The Vault
2) Level your 7th or so char in a Shuttlecraft.
3) Get as many friends as you can for Shuttle PvP (Shuttle Wars)
4) Get 5 friends and go hunt some ships in DSEs (SHuttle Wars, PVE Edition)
5) Gather the Delta Flyer parts

Things not to do with a Shuttle, because it's rude.
1) A STF
2) Join the regular PvP Queue
3) Join a Red Alert action.
1 VA with Beam Overload 1 in a Peregrine with 1 Mark XI purple dual beam array and 1 Mark XI Hargh'Peng = good probe duty. Add a science player to the mix and you got a tiny fleet of distractions for the mother ship.

To select a shuittle, go to your ship's transporter room and to get back to your ship just go to your shuttles bridge.

The Vault also gives you Scorpion Fighters as a reward, which when in a regular ship (not a shuttle or fighter) allows you to launch 3 Scorpion fighters to assist in combat. you can launch the fighters 50 times per Vault Reward. (it's unique so you have to completely use or sell the first device before you can pick up the next if you do the Vault again.) you can have a max of 6 fighters out at once.

True its impolite in a sense... but honestly players can do whatever they want.
I flew a Peregrine into an RA once just for the lulz of strafing one of the biggest bosses in the game with one of (if not THE) smallest ship(s) flyable.

It was amazingly fun.

I'm not crazy enough (yet) to attempt non-organized non-shuttle PvP though. :p

Peregrine Fighters are amazing in non-shuttle PvP matches











...for the opposing teams score.

Hmm. Reading it quoted that way, I have to wonder whether I was thinking of the emberrassment of the Borg Collective to be defeated by 5 Shuttles, or because the other 4 players now have to fight for 5...

Also you need the shuttle to do the missions to get the Delta flyer.
