The Danube-class is a Starfleet runabout actively serving aboard Federation starships and installations during the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.

General Overview

A small, versatile vessel for short-term support missions, the Danube-class runabout features an interchangeable midsection allowing the ship to be customized for a variety of uses. A mission-specific equipment pod containing torpedoes or sensors can also be attached amidships. Aft of the detachable (in emergency) cockpit section and labs, the runabout features a small living area for extended missions.

Entering service in 2368 immediately after successful trials, the first three runabouts were assigned to space station Deep Space Nine, though of these, only the Rio Grande remains in service.
