For other uses, see Magellan.

The Magellan was a Federation shuttlecraft in service to Starfleet in the mid 23rd century. In the 2250s, the Magellan was assigned to the Constitution-class USS Enterprise.

In the year 2251, Captain Christopher Pike led a landing party consisting of Commander Benjamin Tuval and three female security officersHoto, Ross, and Smith—from the Magellan to the Orion vessel, Karkon's Wing. They discovered that the invitation from the Orions was a trap and attempted to return to the Enterprise in the shuttle. However, not every member of the landing party made it to the Magellan, and the shuttle was fired upon once it left the Orion ship, sustaining heavy damage, including a major hull breach. The Enterprise discovered the shuttle's reamains and used a tractor beam to bring them on board. (TOS novel: The Children of Kings)
