USS Yukon

Class: Danube-class
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Destroyed (2373)

The USS Yukon was a 24th century Federation Danube-class runabout operated by Starfleet. This runabout was assigned to Deep Space 9.

In 2372, Miles O'Brien and Major Kira Nerys were returning to DS9 aboard the Yukon when they witnessed the detonation of a cloaked Klingon mine. (DS9: "Sons of Mogh")

A year later, the Yukon was stolen by a Changeling impersonating Julian Bashir. The Changeling killed the runabout's crew and modified it to withstand the heat of the Bajoran sun. The Changeling also equipped the runabout with trilithium, tekasite, and protomatter, ingredients which would destroy the entire Bajoran system. The Yukon was being tractored away by the USS Defiant from the sun when the bomb exploded, destroying the ship. (DS9: "By Inferno's Light")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 572) assigned this runabout the registry NCC-74602. The book noted that it was "named after the river in Northwest Canada and central Alaska flowing 1,979 miles to the Bering Sea."
