The Flyer-class was a type of Federation Starfleet heavy shuttlecraft in operation from the 2370s. The class was based on the design of the Delta Flyer and Delta Flyer II, designed and constructed by the crew of the USS Voyager while that starship was stranded in the Delta Quadrant.
Following her return to Federation territory during the Borg Invasion of 2381, the USS Titan had at least one Flyer-class shuttle, the Horne, added to her shuttle complement before she departed back into deep space to continue her mission of exploration. Of all Titan's shuttles the new Flyer-class was the fastest.
In that year Doctor Shenti Yisec Eres Ree, under the influence of his paternal instinct, kidnapped the pregnant Deanna Troi and stole the Horne when he felt Troi and her baby would not be safe on the Titan. Upon boarding the Horne, Ree tore out the pilot's chair to make a more comfortable position for his non-humanoid form to control the ship. He then used the ship's weapons systems to shoot an opening in the Titan's shuttlebay permitting him to escape. (TTN novel: Over a Torrent Sea)
