Shuttle Livingston NCC-74214/3

Although Defiant Class Starships are not usually equipped with shuttles of this type, COMM Swart's penchant for the Type 9 motivated him to request special dispensation to have one of these on board, to replace a Type 18 Shuttlepod that was lost on a mission.

The Shuttle Livingston is named for the great African explorer David Livingston, who charted much of Sub-Saharan Africa in Earth's 19th Century, in an attempt to establish a trade-route that would steer clear of slavers that plagued the area at the time.

Although Defiant Class Starships don't carry a Captain's Yacht as such, the Shuttle Livingston is generally regarded as the COMM Swart's private shuttle.
