The type X shuttlepod marks one of those rare instances in Starfleet history that a shuttlepod has been designed primarily for military purposes. Starfleet shuttles do come equipped with limited defensive systems; but their primary mission profile does not typically involve combat, but rather short-range personnel transfers, planetary ops, limited deep space scouting and emergency starship escape. The type X, while sharing these capabilities, comes equipped with more powerful weapons and larger warp coil assemblies for increased speed and is more heavily shielded. The type X shuttlepod can also act in a tactical assistance role during combat, and provide a stronger defence for escape pods in the event a starship is damaged or destroyed.

Building on the lessons learned from successful modifications to the Defiant class, the type X shuttlepod shares many similar systems with the starship it was designed for. The type X shuttle's most noticeable Defiant-inspired features are its recessed, armoured engine pods. No longer situated away from the hull on potentially vulnerable support pylons, the protected engines eliminate a tactical weakness. Based on a type VI shuttle space frame design, the insides of the type X more closely resemble those of a starship. Sub-scale versions of starship warp and impulse propulsion systems give the type X shuttlepod an impressive capacity for speed. Weapons systems include standard phaser banks, but also feature the capability to launch micro torpedoes through micro-torpedo launchers. On-board computer systems are based on a scaled-down version of the computer core utilised by the Danube class runabout.
