The original plan was for the Captain's yacht to be used to transport Capt. Picard to Starbase 515 for immediate heart surgery, but the producers decided to nix the idea due to budget constraints, and to go with a traditional shuttlecraft instead. Ironically, the Captain's yacht for the Enterprise-D is never used nor shown throughout the entire Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) series run, however the one for the Enterprise-E would be used in Star Trek: Insurrection (1998).
