The following is a list of unnamed Danube-class runabouts.

By registryEdit

By yearEdit

Transport to the Enterprise-D Edit

Danube class, 2369

A runabout assigned to the USS Enterprise-D

This runabout was utilized by four members of the USS Enterprise-D during their return trip from a three-day psychological conference on the effects of deep space assignments in 2369.

It was while on board this runabout and returning from the conference that Enterprise-D personnel Captain Picard, Counselor Troi, Geordi La Forge and Data discovered the Enterprise-D and a D'deridex-class Warbird locked in a temporal fracture in the space-time continuum. Ultimately, the runabout was deliberately destroyed via remote control by Picard from the Enterprise-D's bridge. The vessel was steered into a power transfer beam, which was the direct cause of the temporal fractures. (TNG: "Timescape")

The computer voice of the runabout was provided by Majel Barrett who received no credit for this voice work.
The name and NCC registry were visible on the ship's hull as NCC-72452, the same as the USS Rio Grande from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, though the ship could not have been Rio Grande, as Picard destroyed the runabout at the end of "Timescape."

Transport Edit

Esso's transport's airlock

Transport ship's airlock

This transport carried Minister Jaro Essa to DS9 following the return of Li Nalas. (DS9: "The Homecoming")

With exception of the airlock hatch connected to the station's docking port and corridor; This transport was only mentioned in dialogue.
It can be identified as a runabout by the airlock design patterns.

Maquis encounter at Teluridian IV Edit

Around 2370, two Starfleet runabouts were encountered by the Val Jean near Teluridian IV. Although outnumbered, the Val Jean was able to escaped using the Maquis trick whereby they blew out the dorsal phase emitters and cut main power, making it look as if the ship was in serious trouble.

Commander Chakotay offered this trick to Captain Kathryn Janeway as an alternative to attack maneuver kappa 010, when the USS Voyager was under attack by two Numiri patrol vessels. (VOY: "Ex Post Facto")

Torga IV mission runaboutEdit

Runabout orbiting Torga IV

Runabout orbiting Torga IV

This unnamed runabout was used by a team from Deep Space 9 to visit Torga IV in early 2373. The ship was later destroyed by a Dominion starship, with the loss of crewmembers Hoya, Bertram, and Rooney. (DS9: "The Ship")

Ajilon Prime runaboutEdit

Runabout in orbit of Ajilon Prime

In orbit of Ajilon Prime

This unnamed runabout was used by Doctor Bashir and Jake Sisko in 2373 to attend a medical conference. En route back to Deep Space 9, the ship responded to a distress call from the Federation colony on Ajilon Prime which was under attack by Klingon forces. The runabout landed on the planet's surface but was later destroyed by Klingon aerial bombardments. (DS9: "Nor the Battle to the Strong")

Empok Nor missionEdit

Runabout docking at Empok Nor

Docked at Empok Nor

This unnamed runabout was used by Chief Miles O'Brien and his crew to visit Empok Nor in 2373. It was later destroyed by a Cardassian left on the station. (DS9: "Empok Nor")

2374 runaboutEdit

Runabout at docking pylon

Docked at Deep Space 9

This ship was docked at one of Deep Space 9's upper pylons in early 2374. The mirror universe version of Bareil Antos attempted to capture it, but was stopped by Kira Nerys. (DS9: "Resurrection")

This runabout was reused stock footage from "Empok Nor". It seems unusual that the runabout would be docked to a pylon as opposed to the more conventional and suitable docking pads on the docking ring.

Ezri's runabout to Sappora VII Edit

Sappora VII

In orbit of Sappora VII

This runabout was used by Lieutenant Ezri Dax in 2375 to travel to Sappora VII. Before arriving at Sappora VII, this ship gave transport to other passengers. (DS9: "Prodigal Daughter")

The footage of this runabout's approach to Sappora VII is a reuse of the same footage showing the approach to Ajilon Prime, only flipped horizontally.
