I keep going back to this image by Drell-7: [link]
Not sure why it sticks with me, but I just find it a beautiful presentation - so much I decided to craft a TNG-era homage
I should point out one flaw in Drell's initial offering, though: the title. To the best of my recollection TOS never used the term "shuttle", but "shuttlecraft". I think we all just got used to saying "Shuttle" after the STS vehicle got a'flyin'.
