"The commander's glider, it's called, though on a diplomatic ship like this it would probably be assigned to Formbi instead of Captain Talshib."
Chak Fel[src]

The commander's glider, sometimes known simply as the glider, was a hyperdrive-equipped shuttle.


These shuttles were carried aboard Chiss capital ships, for the personal use of the senior officer aboard. It was the only long-range shuttle assigned as standard to starships of the class represented by Chaf Envoy.

Because Chaf Envoy was a diplomatic ship, her glider was assigned to Aristocra Formbi rather than Captain Talshib, and was used by the Aristocra to pick up Dean Jinzler from a rendezvous with Jorj Car'das.
