|Assignment:||Deep Space 9|
In 2373, the Shenandoah, along with the USS Rio Grande, was used by Jadzia Dax and Worf to transport tribbles infesting Bajor's Tozhat Province to cargo ships in orbit of the Bajoran homeworld. (DS9 short story: "The Tribbles' Pagh")
In 2374, Worf and Jadzia used the Shenandoah to travel to a location near the Badlands where they were to be contacted by Lasaran, a Cardassian working for Starfleet on Cardassia. Lasaran informed them that the Dominion was growing suspicious of him and he would need to be extracted from Cardassian territory. Agreeing to help Lasaran defect on Soukara, Dax used information from Lasaran to pilot the Shenandoah through a gap in the Soukara system's sensor grid in an asteroid field and land on the planet's surface. After Jadzia was injured by a Jem'Hadar, Worf aborted the mission several days later and returned to the Shenandoah. He had planned to put Jadzia in the runabout's stasis chamber to keep her stabilized for the journey back to Deep Space 9 for medical treatment. (DS9 episode: "Change of Heart")
Later that year, Nog took the Shenandoah to Starbase 257 to receive a message for Grand Nagus Zek from the Federation. Also aboard was Jake Sisko, who was hoping for an interview with Zek for the Federation News Service, although he had told Nog he was only coming as he wanted to see Ferenginar. Soon after departing, the starbase came under attack by the Jem'Hadar and one Jem'Hadar fighter engaged the Shenandoah. Forced to pilot the Shenandoah into Dominion-held space on a direct course, the Jem'Hadar fighter soon caught up with the Shenandoah and began to fire upon it. The Shenandoah was losing main power when the USS Valiant arrived and engaged the Jem'Hadar, transporting Nog and Jake off the runabout in the process. (DS9 episode: "Valiant")
