Data and Worf's shuttle

Launched from the saucer section's main shuttlebay, Data and Worf used this shuttle to successfully rescue Picard, who was assimilated by the Borg into Locutus.

Because the Borg cube's EM field is impervious to transporters, Riker's plan to rescue the captain required the shuttle. While entering the field, Data and Worf powered down the shuttle when Enterprise sensors thought the Borg might have detected it.

Making its escape, the shuttle breached the EM field and was quickly destroyed by the Borg, but not before Data and Worf safely beamed back to Enterprise, with Locutus in tow.
