The Executive Shuttle was an exclusive space shuttle to the executives aboard the USG Ishimura.
Prior to the arrival of Isaac Clarke to the Ishimura's Crew Deck, somebody destroyed the shuttle's singularity core and scattered it's navigation cards into hidden locations in the Crew Deck, rendering the shuttle inoperable and explaining why it was not ejected from the Ishimura or hijacked by the fleeing survivors. Dr. Kyne was extremely interested in getting the shuttle back into working condition in order to return the Red Marker back to Aegis VII and he was willing to take considerable risks to complete his mission.
After acquiring the singularity core from the USM Valor and the missing navigation cards from the Crew Deck, Isaac was granted access to the damaged shuttle by a now excited Kyne who instructed Isaac to repair the shuttle and remove any Necromorphs from the area. After Isaac inserted the navigation cards and the singularity core, the shuttle's engines still need to be tested before it could leave the Ishimura. While Isaac was testing the engines, the Hunter ambushed Isaac. After the Hunter was eliminated, Kyne piloted the shuttle out of the Ishimura to await Isaac's retrieval of the Red Marker in the Flight Deck.
After the Red Marker was placed into the shuttle's cargo hold, Kendra Daniels shot Kyne in the chest with a Divet and left Isaac on the ship. However, before she could shock out, Isaac was instructed by the hallucination of Nicole to the Flight Deck's control room where he issued the emergency shuttle recall signal, causing the shuttle to return to the ship. Kendra, however left the shuttle via an escape pod before the shuttle re-entered the Ishimura.
Escaping Aegis VIIEdit
Following Isaac's battle with the Hive Mind, he was forced to escape the planet with great haste as the tectonic chunk of rock removed by the Ishimura prior to the Necromorph outbreak plummeted toward the colony. With no time to spare, Isaac escaped the gravitational pull of the planet only to witness the tectonic mass impact the planet with a blinding explosion.
After being adrift for three weeks, two Earth Government agents, Maxmillian Reinhardt and Xander Sklar received a transmission from a Pleasure Cruiser stating that they received a distress signal from a small shuttle in the Yothei System and began boarding preparations.
