First seen in the Voyager episode "Parallax", the Type 8 is almost identical in design to the Type 6 seen in TNG's "Darmok". Since I had already tagged the Type 6 as being a modification of the Type 3 design seen in ST V, it seemed logical that the Type 8 would be a completely modern successor. This seems to be what the creators had in mind when they designed the Type 8. The idea of a special operations model of the Type 8 parallels the special ops models of the type 6 and 7 mentioned in the TNG tech manual description of those shuttles (page 161), but all the details are my own invention.
