"Dark running" is a Starfleet term for highly secretive starship travel. In addition to maintaining radio silence, a ship under dark running conditions will extinguish all exterior lights, close all viewports, and opaque the viewscreen. Dark running procedures were used by ships visiting "The Yard". (TOS short story: "Devices and Desires")
