The Delta Flyer is an advanced shuttle designed by Lieutenant Tom Paris and constructed by the crew of the USS Voyager NCC-74656 in 2375. The Delta Flyer is a hybrid of Starfleet and Borg technology and features ultra-aerodynamic contours, a tetraburnium alloy hull, unimatrix shielding, and Borg-inspired weapons systems including photonic missiles. The ship employs a duranium composite hull. While in warp the small nacelles change position. The Delta Flyer is not only capable of interstellar and atmospheric travel but can be modified for underwater travel as well. The front end of the Delta Flyer is the cockpit which has seating for four people and there is an aft cargo bay with an isolation medical bed, replicator, transporter, and enviromental suits.

In 2376, while on a mission to infiltrate a Borg Class-4 Tactical Cube the Delta Flyer was destroyed just after Captain Janeway, Lieutenant Commander Tuvok, and Lieutenant Torres beamed aboard the Cube. The ship was however rebuilt shortly thereafter with some modifications including new impulse thrusters.

The Delta Flyer was built in the episode "Extreme Risk". It appears to be larger on the inside than it is outside. In "Collective" we see a Jefferies Tube and in "Good Shepherd" we see one of the Delta Flyer's escape pods.

The Delta Flyer was designed by series production designer Richard James and senior illustrator Rick Sternbach.
