The SS Manila was a Federation transport ship that was in service in the early 24th century.
In 2328, the Manila run included transporting Alex Smutko to Delta Charnock IX, departing Purser's Planet. The starship also transported Dick Brownfield from Chronister II to Thomsworld Spaceport, and departed Balder's Planet destined for Epsilon West IV, with Mark Stimson on board.
By 2370, the ship's passenger manifest was available in Federation records. In that year, Lieutenant Commander Data accessed the manifest aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Inheritance")
Manila is the capital of the Philippines.
