This type of shuttle was also used as ground-based transportation, on Vulcan. In 2154, a shuttlecraft of this type transported Ambassador Soval to the Vulcan High Command building, which had an external landing pad. (ENT: "Awakening")
The Vulcan shuttle was designed by John Eaves.  An early script for the episode ENT: "Extinction" called for another style of 22nd century Vulcan shuttle, and although Eaves produced several sketches of the class , it was written out of the episode by the time of filming.
