|Assignment:||Deep Space 9|
In 2370, the Orinoco was assigned to Deep Space 9 as a replacement for the USS Yangtzee Kiang, which had been lost the previous year. In one of it's first missions, the Orinoco was used to evacuate all non-Bajoran personnel from the station. (DS9 episode: "The Siege")
In 2371, the Orinoco assisted the Akorem Laan in searching the Demilitarized Zone for the Maquis ship which had stolen the Orb of Contemplation, during which it was damaged by a mine. (DS9 short story: "The Orb of Opportunity")
- The comic story Field Trip, which occurs in 2369 or 2370 shows a runabout named Orinoco but with a registry number of NCC-72455 and in the DS9 comic: "Hearts and Minds" the vessel had a registry of NCC-72458. While this is a contradiction to the number established in episodes, it could be that the Orinoco's registry changed at some point.
