The Mark 12 was the latest model in Starfleet’s line of Class F utility shuttles when the Constitution-class entered service and like its predecessors, continued to improve on the basic design. Starfleet’s rapid expansion in the 2240’s and the need for replacements for losses incurred during the Federation-Klingon War ensured that many of these craft were constructed, becoming the “Jeep” of the 23rd century. Although getting a little long in the tooth, they remained a common sight into the 2280’s.
