The Galileo (NCC-1701/7) was a Class F shuttlecraft assigned to the USS Enterprise in 2267, as a replacement for the original Galileo.

In 2267, Captain James T. Kirk, Spock, and Dr. McCoy used the Galileo to transport Nancy Hedford back to the Enterprise from Epsilon Canaris III. A few months later, the Galileo transported Ambassador Sarek and Amanda Grayson to the Enterprise for the Babel Conference. (TOS episodes: "Metamorphosis", "Journey to Babel")

In 2267, the Galileo was used to transport sensitive mummies found on an archeological dig on Heitius VII. (TOS comic: "The Mummies of Heitius VII")

In 2268, the Galileo was nearly destroyed when Commander Spock used her to travel inside a giant space amoeba to destroy it. Spock's mission was successful, and the shuttle was thrown clear and collected and repaired by the Enterprise. (TOS episode: "The Immunity Syndrome")

Later in the same year, the Galileo was used to make contact with future descendants of the Enterprise crew on a radiation-soaked planet near the Shapley Center (having crashlanded the starship one thousand years earlier in a slingshot effect time-loop). (TOS - New Visions comic: "Time's Echo")

Some time afterwards, Captain Kirk and a small party used the Galileo to proceed on a diplomatic mission to Tarsus IV. En route back to the Enterprise, the Galileo was brought off course to a medieval planet nearby. Unable to control the shuttle, it crashlanded on the surface of the planet, and while the occupants survived the Galileo was damaged beyond repair. (TOS comic: "Day of the Inquisitors")
