The USS Yolja (NCC-75353) was a Danube-class runabout that was constructed at the Antares shipyards and was assigned to Deep Space 9 in late 2376. The ship was to have had a waveguide installed to increase its warp velocity, although the lack of that piece of technology due to the war meant it was commissioned without it. Nonetheless, the ship was more advanced than the rest of Deep Space 9's runabouts.

Its name was chosen by Captain Kira Nerys, who, as the commander of Deep Space 9, named it after the Yolja River on Bajor. Thus, it became the first Danube class ship to be named after a non-Earth river, to mark the Bajoran people's entry into the United Federation of Planets.


Kira took possession of the Yolja aboard the USS Mjolnir, which they had travelled to aboard the USS Rio Grande. Sam Bowers and Aleco Vel later boarded the Yolja to fly it to DS9. (DS9 novel: The Dominion: Olympus Descending)

In the year 2377, Kira used the Yolja to travel to Bajor to consult the Orb of Memory and later contacted Elias Vaughn from the runabout. (DS9 novel: Fearful Symmetry)

In the DS9 novel: Warpath, Kira Nerys experienced a vision where she rides a zhom named Jayol, which is an anagram of Yolja.
