The details of the vehicle aren't discussed in detail, but it is capable of atmospheric, surface-to-orbit, orbit-to-surface flight, in addition to spaceflight, and has a carrying capacity of 500 people. The capacity and capabilities of the shuttle are explicitly discussed by Ilia Volyova and Ana Khouri while they plan their evacuation of the refugees from an Inhibitor-threatened Resurgam. The shuttle type is presumably also used for the evacuation from the surface, once the whole effort is in motion.
- Inhibitor trilogy
- It is unclear whether the Dominatrix, a larger atmosphere-capable shuttle of the lighthugger Gnostic Ascension, is of the same design as the unnamed large orbital shuttle of the Nostalgia for Infinity, or a different design altogether.
- The name of this ship type is, of course, somewhat conjectural, as the vessel is not described in any great detail. (It's not even entirely clear whether it has spaceplane or lifting body characteristics, or is an entirely thrust-reliant shuttle.)
- Spherical shuttle - A small, spherical, vacuum-only shuttle used by Demarchists and some Ultranaut lighthugger crews.
- Lighthugger in-system craft - A larger, vacuum-only auxilliary ship, carried by some lighthuggers.
