Shuttles?
What is the point in buying an individual shuttle?

Mainly for fun or roleplay. You have no idea how fun it is to fly a yellowstone runabout into a deep space encounter with a load of other people.

There are a few missions where a shuttle is needed.

fun or roleplay. you used to be able to run stf's in shuttles and have a blast trying to beat them

you can take them into deep space encounters and be a bunch of fighters, pew pew pew 'merica

there are also some missions that require them. shuttles are cheap so you might as well just get the best runabouts available.

Are they equipped on my star ship? or do they operate as a different ship? Like can i be using my heavy cruiser, and then decide to get in a runabout and use that for a little and then go back to my heavy cruiser?

They are separate ships, but while you are on your main ship (your heavy cruiser in this case) you automatically end up in your shuttle for any mission that needs it.

If you want to be in your shuttle by default (all the time) all you gotta do is go to a ship selector and tick the active ship box for it (lower left of the selector screen).

I want to add some additional information to clarify some stuff.

You get a starship and shuttle that you literaly equip, you choose the shuttle when you reach that point and then you will have an active ship and active shuttle.

When a mission requires one ship or another it will automaticaly switch you to it if you have it readied.

You can see if its readied by an icon being next to the ship and shuttle. Also you can assign the shuttle a bridge officer.

Anytime during the game you may get into your shuttle via the menu, or you can also visit the shuttle bridge or the main ship bridge.

Hope this answers the main questions.

As for what the shuttle is for....its for specifc missions that require a shuttle but also it was intended for future content.

But due to how crytpic does things....the future content for shuttles they first selected was not considered good enough so its more or less still a work in progress.

How do I know this you might wonder about what cryptic is doing....well first they listed information in a few state of the game things on what they where working on.

Since they are in a state of N-n-Disclosure Agreement...ie they cant discuss or tellyou about future content or stuff they are working on with out approval.....then when ever the shuttle things are broguht up they wont directly answer the questions or simply wont answer....which means they are under a non-disclosure agreement.
Thus since its taken this long to see new things involving specificaly shuttles then you can assume by following what they have done inthe past....that they where dis-satisfied with whatever they had and are working on something else untill it looks like what they think it should be.

YOu mean The Vaul one? It is unplayble, since people tend to behave stupid. Like the countdown being very close to zero, and them just waiting for the door to open instead of fighting the last enemies to open the door.

Try the Elachi one vs the "World of the Worlds" walkers for a good lol. The mission is very long though.
