The Delta Flyer was one of the best parts of Star Trek: Voyager. This week it returned to Star Trek to compete in a race for Rutherford’s mind on Star Trek: Lower Decks.

Originally designed by Tom Paris in order to compete in a space race, the ship was intended to be a pilot-friendly, hot-rod. More fighter craft than shuttlecraft, it was an entirely unique and original design which did things Starfleet ships almost never do. It’s the closest Star Trek has ever gotten to really using a fighter, and it does it in the most Starfleet way possible.

For comparison, here’s how the Delta Flyer looked on Star Trek: Voyager back in the 90s…

Round of applause for Mike McMahan and the Star Trek: Lower Decks team, they nailed it.

It’s worth noting that the version of the Delta Flyer built by Rutherford is actually the second Delta Flyer. The original version was destroyed by the Borg. Later Tom Paris built a second Delta Flyer, this one with the pop-out exhaust ports Rutherford mentions having installed on his version.
