The Flotilla excursion shuttle or Flotilla excursion vehicle was a type of shuttle of the Flotilla of colonisation ships headed for Sky's Edge.

They were used for keeping contact between the individual ships of the Flotilla, ferrying crew members (including crew dignitaries), supplies and materials between the ships.

Like the generation ships of the Flotilla, the excursion shuttles were also powered by antimatter.

Variants Edit

These shuttles were available to the Flotilla in several variants. The smallest was a two-seater version, but there were also several more variants with larger passenger and cargo capacities.
