There are five standard Eagle variants:

1.) The Transporter Eagle, designated Type A, is fitted with the standard passenger pod and is capable of holding 8 passengers (up to 12 in an emergency), in addition to the pilot and co-pilot. It is used for day to day transportation when special scientific equipment is not needed, and there is no anticipated danger.

2.) Equipped with a cargo pod, the Freighter Eagle is designated Type B, and used for transporting supplies and equipment to exploration teams on a planet's surface, and for the return elements vital to Alpha's environmental and reprocessing systems. They can also be used as space-borne tankers for the refueling of Eagles with insufficient reserves for the trip back to Alpha.

3.) Looking very similar to the transporter pod Eagles, Reconnaissance Eagles are designated as Type C, and come equipped with various types of sensory devices for exploratory missions. They also contain a computer that can either be tied into Alpha's master computer or work independently.

4.) Identifiable by the bold red stripes on the pod, Rescue Eagles are designated Type D, and have been adapted for field diagnosis and treatment of injury or disease that may be encountered on a planet's surface or in deep space. Manned by medical personnel, Rescue Eagles are equipped with mobile beds, patient-monitor units, and facilities for field surgery.

5.) With a modified version of the passenger pod equipped to serve as a remote laboratory, the Laboratory Eagle is designated Type E, and can be used to locate and refine crude minerals on the planet’s surface, eliminating the need to transport bulky raw ores back to Alpha. This pod also serves as a base for planetary-contact-and-survey teams. It can carry food and water and recycle air to support the team for several weeks.

Specialty Modules:
The Eagle can also accommodate several specialty modules, such as a winch. There is also an additional booster unit that can be added to the super-structure which can increase the range and power of the Eagle.

The armament and defensive systems of this vessel were upgraded to Starfleet standard.
