The Monk was a Federation Starfleet Type 9A cargo shuttle assigned to the Luna-class starship USS Titan in the 2380s.
In the year 2386, the Monk's interior was stripped out to enable it to rescue nearly 40 of Titan's crew who had been abducted by the Solanae to their asteroid base in their subspace realm. Lieutenant Commanders Ranul Keru and Melora Pazlar piloted the shuttle from Titan to the base but, upon discovering over one hundred additional abductees from the USS Whitetree and the Dinac Expeditionary Initiative pinnace, the Monk was returned to Titan by autopilot and the starship flew in and completed the rescue.
