A former Starfleet science vessel, the USS Rutan NCC-20046, this ship had been floating in a surplus yard for almost a decade when it was bought by the Tagrans and modified as a short-range, largely automated research vessel. However, shortly before this conversion was completed, the Sirco cell of the Maquis infiltrated the under-staffed repair yards working on the ex-Rutan, seizing it for their own use. They soon renamed it the Hur’Un, a Klingon term. When the Dominion put an end to the Maquis, Sirco cell turned themselves over to Bajor, who impounded the ship. A year later, when Starfleet needed a small vessel for a covert mission, the acquired the ship from the Bajorans, renamed it the USS Rutan, and ordered the now-commissioned former Maquis to take it into the Gamma Quadrant. The ship was spotted by Dominion forces and destroyed, stranding the crew on the far side of the galaxy.
