It was capable of only warp one.
In 2364, Lieutenant Commander Data and Lieutenant Tasha Yar flew this shuttle from the Enterprise to the planet Treva to investigate events there. The journey took them several days, and Data programmed the shuttle's replicator with Aldebaran wine, quetzi ramekins, and oysters to add to their meals. They eventually landed at a spaceport at the Trevan capital, and the shuttle was stored in a hangar. It was subsequently stolen by Sdan and Poet when they kidnapped Yar, and it was brought to the Warrior's Rest castle. It was later returned to the Enterprise. (TNG novel: Survivors)
