The Delta Flyer was a specially-designed Federation shuttlecraft which was constructed by the crew of the USS Voyager in 2375, during that starship's long voyage in the Delta Quadrant. Unlike any other Federation shuttlecraft before it, the Delta Flyer was a blend of Starfleet and Borg technology, and was designed to perform in situations that were deemed too hazardous for standard shuttlecraft. Among the many features included on the Delta Flyer were an ultra-aerodynamic tetraburnium alloy hull, retractable warp nacelles, parametallic hull plating, unimatrix shielding, and a Borg-inspired weapons systems, including pulse phasers and photonic missiles. (VOY episode: "Extreme Risk")

For several years Tom Paris had been working on plans to design and build a new shuttlecraft, but the plans were finally given the go-ahead by Captain Kathryn Janeway, when Voyager had to recover its multi-spatial probe from a gas giant, before the Malon could obtain it. Following a brainstorming session with Paris, Tuvok, Seven of Nine, Harry Kim, and B'Elanna Torres, the design of the Delta Flyer was finalized, and construction of the ship rushed. The Delta Flyer's mission was successful, despite a hull breach, and the probe was safely returned to Voyager. (VOY episode: "Extreme Risk")

A few months later the Flyer was equipped with a transwarp coil, when Captain Janeway led a team to rescue Seven of Nine from the Borg Queen at the heart of the Collective. Once Seven was rescued, the Flyer returned to Voyager at transwarp speed with the Queen close behind. Fortunately, the Flyer's defenses were able to hold until they reached Voyager. (VOY episode: "Dark Frontier")

When Voyager was trapped in the Vohrsoth Forge, the Delta Flyer was used to transport members of the hazard team onto the Scavengers' base of operations in order to acquire stolen samples of isodesium. This transport was done by shuttlecraft because the Scavengers had a transporter inhibitor present which prevented a direct beam-in into the station. (VOY video game: Elite Force)

In late 2376, Captain Janeway, Tuvok, and Torres, took the Flyer into the path of a Borg tactical cube, with the ultimate goal of infiltrating the Collective and be able to assist the inhabitants of Unimatrix Zero. When the Flyer approached the Cube, the Queen had the shuttlecraft destroyed,and the away team beamed onto the cube just as the Flyer was destroyed.(VOY episode: "Unimatrix Zero, Part I")

Following the team's return to Voyager in early 2377, a replacement, the Delta Flyer II, was constructed. (VOY episode: "Drive")

The Delta Flyer was a shuttlecraft designed and constructed by the crew of the USS Voyager during their time in the Delta Quadrant. A unique vessel it was a mix of Starfleet and Borg technology and was designed to handle the dangerous conditions in the Delta Quadrant. (VOY: "Extreme Risk")

In late 2376, the Delta Flyer was destroyed during a mission to infiltrate a number of Voyager's crew into a Borg Tactical Cube. (VOY: "Unimatrix Zero")

In an alternate reality, the Delta Flyer was captured by the cube, just before its destruction, and Berlinghoff Rasmussen's temporal displacement drive was installed on it. Beck then took the ship into the past and changed history so that the Borg never aquired a temporal displacement drive and never captured the Delta Flyer in the first place. (Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "Displacement Syndrome")

Beck's return to the past set events back to the way they were as seen in VOY: "Unimatrix Zero", the only difference being that a duplicate Delta Flyer continued to exist.

A nearly identical craft was built to replace the destroyed shuttle and was named the Delta Flyer II. (VOY: "Drive")

Beck continued to use his Delta Flyer as a timeship for some time, until returning to the late 2370s to return the temporal displacement drive to Section 31. (Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "Displacement Syndrome")

Following Voyager's return to the Alpha Quadrant the Delta Flyer design started to appear on other Federation starships such as the USS Dauntless. (Starship Dauntless)

Star Trek: Arcadia continuity

In the Star Trek: Arcadia universe, the Delta Flyer was referred to a Delta-class runabout.
