Yes! I see it working with each ship having X about of shuttle points (or whatever you want to call it) and each type of shuttle costing some. Shuttlepods/workbees cost 1, regular shuttles cost 3, Delta Flyer costs 4, Runabout costs 5. Defient class ships have 2 shuttle points while a Galaxy or other large class ship has as many as 25!

What about the smaller shuttles? Like the tiny type-15 (bigger than a workbee, smaller than a normal shuttle). Two "points"?

Well for one thing, I don't think we ever want to limit the number of shuttles players can have at their disposal for those who like to have one of everything.

The coolness factor for me is the "hypothetical" ability to make missions that say "you must be in a shuttle" which will allow for some interesting diversity in some missions.

Also - It would also be pretty badass if you could take your shuttle down to a planet instead of always beaming down.

LOL! You tease you!

That is definitely the kind of thing I'd like to be able to do in my ship's interiors. Someday you have to come out with one of these amazingly cool ideas and instead of saying "eventually" or "soon" have it be available "now" just to mess with all of us

The canon nerd in me shudders to think of a Defiant or even Intrepid-class ship with a full complement of shuttles (notwithstanding Voyager's seemingly infinite shuttlebay), but I'd get over it.

Just for fun, a shuttlecraft wish list:

The Defiant's Chaffee class.

The unfortunately-unnamed Federation mission scoutship (some kind of shuttle/escort?).

Oh man....how can you make a comment like that and not tell us when this is planning on being introduced. There are those of us who really want increased interior and bridge functionality.

Hypothetically speaking, there could potentially be space systems that would require the player to be in a shuttlecraft in order to enter. So long as the ship you are currently piloting is considering a "Shuttle" class, then you would be able to use any of the Shuttlecraft you own to enter that system.
DStahl, I am going to start calling you (affectionalty) the The Sprinkler! Becuase everytime I ready one of your posts I wet myself with excitement :p

I assume we'll be able to fly our shuttles whenever we want? (like we can currently fly the runabout at will by visiting a shipyard)
