The Copernicus (NCC-1701-12) was a Federation shuttlecraft in service to Starfleet in the mid to late 23rd century, assigned to the USS Enterprise.

Service historyEdit

In the year 2264, the Copernicus was used by Captain Kirk to retrieve Amelinda Lukarian and Stephen from the alien worldship. (TOS novel: Enterprise: The First Adventure)

In 2266, the Copernicus was used to search for the missing Captain Kirk, who had disappeared on Tlaoli IV. (TOS - The Janus Gate novel: Future Imperfect)

In 2267, the Copernicus was attacked by the Klingon D'kar, son of Kor, and forced to land on a previously uncharted planet. (TOS short story: "The Leader")

In 2270, the Copernicus was used to transport a Slaver stasis box to Starbase 25. (TAS episode: "The Slaver Weapon") gives the Copernicus the registry of NCC-1701A/3, the shuttle number from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, despite using the image from the episode showing the NCC-1701-12 registry.

Later that year, the Copernicus was destroyed when Spock attempted to use it to stop a fleet deployed by the Isitri Council to attack Isitra Colony First and Captain Kirk was forced to open fire on the Copernicus. (TOS novel: Troublesome Minds)
