In 2375, the Gander was piloted by Lieutenant Ezri Dax in her search for Worf, who had been reported missing in action from the IKS Koraga near the Badlands. She directed the ship to where his escape pod's last known position likely was, and shut off engines to allow the plasma storms to drift the Gander to the same place the escape pod was. Her plan worked, although the ship took minor damage from the plasma field. She was able to lock a tractor beam on to the escape pod and transport Worf aboard.
On the return trip to Deep Space 9, the Gander was attacked by two Jem'Hadar attack ships near the Goralis system. Their engines damaged, they entered Goralis III's atmosphere, beaming down shortly before the Gander exploded in the night sky above them. (DS9: "Penumbra")
