The Magellan was a Federation Type-6 shuttlecraft in service to Starfleet in the late 24th century. In the 2360s, Magellan was assigned to the USS Enterprise as shuttle 15.
In the year 2368, Lieutenant Worf piloted the Magellan from the Enterprise in an attempt to rescue Captain Jean-Luc Picard from El-Adrel IV. The shuttle was fired on by a Tamarian deep space cruiser and forced to abort the mission. (TNG episode: "Darmok")
Later that year, the Magellan was destroyed during a mission to recover a J'naii shuttle, the Taris Murn, from null space. (TNG episode: "The Outcast")
