The Concord Type Shuttlepod was developed alongside the Rockwell class. For all intents and purposes it was essentially a replacement for the NX type pods introduced decades earlier.
The Concord Types unlike their predecessors, were equipped with a limited warp drive. The class featured two impulse drive units. Two stabilizing units flanked the warp nacelles, allowing for smooth atmospheric flight. Due to their shape, the Concord Types were sometimes referred to by star fleet crews as Flying Bricks. On the inside the cramped interior was sometimes compared to a closet. Emergency medical supplies were behind panels on the side of the cockpit.
These shuttlepods were usually stored in the underside of the hull on a Rockwell Class starship, which typically had enough room for six.
