I would expect, since it appeared on screen, the class of this ship should be known. Could someone add it? Maybe a picture of that class on this page.-- Redge 10:10, 23 Jun 2004 (CEST)


Was the USS Rubicon destroyed?-- Rebelstrike2005 18:29, 17 Jan 2005 (CET)

The Rubicon wasn't one of the first three runabouts deployed. -- Michael Warren | Talk 18:31, Jan 17, 2005 (CET)

Text removed Edit

I removed the following text from the article, since it doesn't make sense:

The Rio Grande was used to pursue the hijacked Orinoco containing Quark, Lieutenant Dax and Ensign Melora Pazlar. For this mission, the Rio Grande was equipped with a roll bar module. The roll bar was removed for all further missions. (DS9: "Melora")

The runabout hijacked in "Melora" contained Quark, Melora, and Fallit Kot, if I remember correctly, not Dax. -- Renegade54 19:00, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Dax was present. She was flying the ship, with Quark in the passenger seat and Pazlar in a rear seat with Kot standing. And that passage does make sense if you've seen that episode. The Rio Grande had a roll bar for that one flight, but it was not present either before or after. (My theory is that the names of the ships (Rio Grande and Orinoco) were mixed up. Orinoco (the one with a pod) was meant to be chasing the Rio Grande, as Orinoco had previous ben established to carry a pod, but thats how the episode went, and Rio Grande had a pod).

Or she simply wasn't carrying the pod that time around, just like in "Shadowplay", "The Jem'Hadar" or "Our Man Bashir". --Jörg 14:42, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

People with sharp vision can help with some missing appearances. I take it the registry can be seen in "What You Leave Behind" etc? -- DS9 Forever 17:30, 4 March 2008 (UTC)


This note was left in the body of the article:

(It may have not been the Rio Grande but check any way for it in the episode.)

I reverted that edit and left the note here, where it belongs. - Bridge 13:07, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Formatting - help needed! Edit

I just added this picture to the article in the 2373 section, to go with the blurb I just added detailing the runabout's actions in "The Ascent". However, despite the fact that the new image link leads to the correct image when you click on it, the thumbnail won't display. Does anyone know what might have caused this?
