Danube class

A Danube-class runabout

A runabout was a small warp-capable vessel, similar to a shuttlecraft, but providing for more interior space and crew amenities for extended interstellar trips.


The Federation Starfleet Danube-class of starships were refered to as runabouts. (DS9 episode: "Hippocratic Oath")

A type of runabout was assigned to the USS Voyager. (VOY novel: Cybersong)

The Cardassians also operated runabouts, such as the defense runabout. (DS9 novelization: The Way of the Warrior)

By 2409 the Romulans had their own model of runabout, the Kestrel-class. (ST video game: Star Trek Online)

Alternate timelineEdit

In an alternate timeline, in 2372, Starfleet also developed the Yellowstone-class runabout; a very similar design to the Danube-class, featuring tetryon plasma warp nacelles. (VOY episode: "Non Sequitur")

Alternate realityEdit

In the alternate reality created by Nero and Spock, Starfleet used runabouts. (ST - Starfleet Academy novel: The Gemini Agent)
