The Type 11 shuttle was designed by the crew of the USS Enterprise as part of Starfleets recent move to allow Starships to produce their own shuttlecraft fleets. The design was created under the direction of Lieutenant Commander Geordi LaForge during the Enterprise's shakedown cruise in 2372, and after some evaluation the ship has produced a dozen of these craft using its industrial replicator system. Like the Type 10, the Type 11 uses some elements of the technology of its parent vessel. Bio-neural gel packs have been included as standard, a step up from the Type 10 computer system which offers the gel packs as an upgrade only. Other technology incorporated is mostly centred around the warp core and nacelles, which use allows the Type 11 to have an equal speed to the type 10 but with a somewhat smaller power plant.

The Type 11 design has been included in Starfleet's shuttle design database, and is now available for any starship with an industrial replicator to produce as needed.

The Type 11 shuttle was seen in action in "Insurrection", but we learned relatively little about it beyond the fact that it has a cockpit cabin which is separated from the rest of the interior - something quite unusual in Federation shuttlecraft - and docking port above the passenger compartment which is presumably behind the cockpit. The presence of nacelles indicates that the ship is warp capable; while we know nothing about speeds, I have assumed that the shuttle is a fast one in line with the Type 9 and 10 shuttles. If anybody has more detail on this craft from an official or canon source, I'd appreciate hearing about it.
