The Type 5 is a 9.1 meter shuttlecraft that came into use by Starfleet during the late 23rd century. It's design is similiar to that of the starship design of the era.

The Type 5 was first seen in "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier". The shuttle was designed by Nilo Rodis and Andy Neskoromny. The miniature was built by Greg Jein. Two full-scale exterior mockups were built for the film, one of which was later modified and used as a shuttle on The Next Generation.
