The USS Roanoke was a Federation runabout assigned by Starfleet to the Tezwa rebuilding effort. The Roanoke was one of the five runabouts dispatched to recover contraband cargo shipments around the planet intended to place suspicion on the Tholians for the construction of the nadion-pulse cannons. (TNG - A Time to... novel: A Time to Heal)
Assigned to the Sovereign-class USS Enterprise-E in January 2384, the Roanoke transported a security team from the Enterprise to the surface of Galor IV to apprehend a Soong-type android believed to be B-4. The runabout was subsequently hijacked by the android, later discovered to be Noonien Soong, but shot down by Admiral Andell's Starfleet forces by using an ion cannon. The runabout crash-landed in an unpopulated marsh near the coast. (TNG - Cold Equations novel: The Persistence of Memory)
By March 2384, the Roanoke had been repaired and was deployed, under the command of Lieutenant Commander Havers, to conduct a search of Tirana III for the missing Federation Security Service interceptor, Sirriam. (TNG - Cold Equations novel: Silent Weapons)
- Although the vessel's class wasn't specified, given the series and time period it was likely a Danube-class. Although never mentioned as such in the novel, the USS prefix is also speculation.
