For the Trill symbiont with a similar name, please see Odan.
The Odin was a 24th century Federation freighter.
In 2357, the Odin was disabled by a collision with an asteroid. The starship's four surviving crewmembers, led by Ramsey, drifted for five months in three of the ship's escape pods until they reached the nearest M-class planet, Angel I. The Odin was declared overdue for the next seven years.
In 2364, the starship was discovered, abandoned in space, by the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Angel One")
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 334), the registry for the SS
Odin was NGL-12535.
The ship was most likely named for Odin
, the creator and supreme deity in Norse mythology.
