 The Kestral-class shuttle has been in use for decades. Its basic design is far older, reflecting the silhouette of the 20th century NASA/ESA Space Shuttle II. Its primary use is to ferry passengers from a planet's surface to an orbital destination. The Kestral can also be used for interstellar flight, provided there are jumpgates available, although its range is very limited.
