The shuttle's capabilities extended to gradually modifying its exterior as it entered or left a new flight environment: From a relatively non-aerodynamic shape while in vacuum flight to an aerodynamic and winged fuselage while in the atmosphere of a specific planet (e.g. Mars).
In order to attempt negotiations with the Conjoiners based at the Great Wall of Mars, Coalition member Nevil Clavain and Demarchist leader and GWM designer Sandra Voi set off from Mars orbit to the surface of the planet, towards the Great Wall. Their landing did not go as planned, the shuttle coming under attack from a remnant Ouroborus-class Worm, a robotic, self-regenerating sabotage and attack unit. The shuttle downed, Clavain and Voi attempted to evade the threat and reach the Conjoiners' base on foot. Clavain was narrowly rescued by a group of armed Conjoiners attempting to ward off the robotic creature, but Voi perished after the creature attacked her.
- The name of this shuttle type is, of course, somewhat conjectural, as no official name is given.
