The Survey Shuttle is a historical design produced in the Terran Confederation during the early 22nd century. Many example of the class were carried aboard the vessels of the Last Armada as they fled the Destruction of Terra at the hands of the Vilani Imperium in 2147AD. The class were sturdy and reliable and endured more than a century of hard service.

Survey Shuttles were constructed in great numbers at Terran-controlled shipyards throughout the Interstellar Wars period. Large numbers were transported to the Expedition's private port facilities in the empty systems lying to rimward of Terra. Once there, their fitting out was completed and they were laid up against the Expedition's future needs.
