The Galileo (NCC-1701-A/05) was a Federation type-4 shuttlecraft in service to Starfleet in the late 23rd century.
The shuttle was assigned to the USS Enterprise-A in the mid-2280s, when that starship was commissioned in 2286. Galileo was the latest of a series of shuttles to bear that name, with previous examples having been assigned to the earlier USS Enterprise.
In 2287, Captain Kirk used the Galileo to transport a team down to Nimbus III to rescue the hostages that Sybok and his followers had taken in Paradise City. Sybok was able to overcome Kirk's forces and together they returned to the Enterprise, where the Galileo was badly damaged during an emergency landing in the shuttlebay.
