For the 22nd century United Earth Starfleet ship, please see Shenandoah.

The USS Shenandoah (NCC-73024) was a Federation Danube-class runabout operated by Starfleet. This ship was assigned to Deep Space 9.

Around stardate 51597, Worf and Jadzia Dax took the Shenandoah to the Badlands to intercept a message from a Cardassian defector named Lasaran. At the rendezvous point, they were instructed to travel to the Soukara system to transport Lasaran from the Dominion base on Soukara back to the Federation. (DS9: "Change of Heart")

The Shenandoah, along with the USS Rubicon and USS Rio Grande, evacuated Deep Space 9 at the time of the Reckoning aboard the station in late 2374. (DS9: "The Reckoning")

Several months later, Nog and Jake Sisko traveled to Starbase 257 aboard the Shenandoah to pick up a message for Grand Nagus Zek from the Federation Council. The Shenandoah was to then travel to Ferenginar, but it was attacked by a Jem'Hadar warship soon after. Nog and Jake were beamed off the runabout by the USS Valiant. (DS9: "Valiant")

As noted in "Family Business", all Danube-class runabouts assigned to Deep Space 9 were named after Earth rivers. The Shenandoah was thus either named for the Shenandoah River in the eastern United States of America or the Shenandoah River in New Zealand.
