The Sphinx-class was designed as a cargo shuttle. It was was equipped with deflector shields, offering it some protection if necessaryand was capable of planetary landing. Sub-light propulsion was generated by a micro-impulse engine powered by three FMIB-3 impulse reactors. (FASA module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual)
At 45m long, 80m wide and 16m high, the shuttle had a mass of 5,200 metric tonnes and was unarmed. It could accomodate two flight crew, 4 passengers and 100 standard cargo units or 5,000mt of cargo in four trailing cargo pods. (FASA module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual)
Given the schematic views provided in the TNG Officer's Manual, there appears to be an error concerning the craft's dimensions, the stats for length and width appear to have been switched.
