The USS Elestan (NCC-77544) was a Federation spacecraft, a Starfleet Danube-class runabout in service in the 2380s decade. (DS9 novel: Sacraments of Fire)
The Elestan and the USS Tecyr arrived at Starbase Deep Space 9 at the same time to add to the station's complement of runabouts.
In September of the year 2385, the Elestan performed its duty rotation at Security Outpost Endalla I when the Tecyr arrived for the weekly crew rotation. Before the rotation commenced, a civilian Bajoran vessel violated Endalla's airspace. Its sole passenger was saved by the Tecyr but the civilian craft itself was lost. (DS9 novel: Sacraments of Fire)
- The Elestan was, presumably, named after the Elestan River on Bajor.
