The Delta Flyer was a specially designed Starfleet shuttlecraft constructed by the crew of the USS Voyager in the Delta Quadrant in 2375. The vessel was designed to handle environments that would be too hazardous for a standard shuttlecraft and to be slightly larger than the average shuttle, the crew having acknowledged that standard shuttles were of little use in the increasingly hostile and unexplored Delta Quadrant. The vessel was a blend of Starfleet and Borg technology, designed in collaboration between Ensign Liam Bain, Ensign Ezzy Bain, Commander Panda, Lieutenant Jenny Wakeman, and Lieutenant Shirley the Loon. It featured a warp-streamlined tetraburnium alloy hull, retractable warp nacelles, parametallic hull plating, unimatrix shielding, and a Borg-inspired weapon system, including photonic missiles. For aesthetic reasons, Paris designed some of the flight controls to resemble those from the holodeck simulation of 20th century aircraft. The addition of dynametric tailfins was denied. Instead of having the usual two pilot stations, it had several command stations.
The ship was destroyed during a battle with a Borg tactical cube in 2377, and was replaced by the Delta Flyer II.
