The Naha was a Federation Starfleet shuttlecraft active in the mid-24th century.

History[edit | edit source]

In the 2360s decade, it was attached to the starship USS Okinawa.

In the year 2362, Benjamin Sisko and Kozel piloted the Naha, supported by the Chatan and Nago, as part of Sisko's plan to stop the USS Assurance from crashing into the surface of Entelior IV after the starship was damaged in a Tzenkethi attack. Sisko's plan was for the Assurance to activate its tractor beam at its widest dispersal, which the shuttlecraft would be then be hooked to to pull the starship upward. Unfortunately, the Nago was destroyed after it collided with a warp nacelle that had detached from the Assurance before the three shuttlecraft could reach the tractor beam, making it impossible for Sisko's team to stop the descent of the starship. However, the Naha and the Chatan were able to slow the descent when they were attached to the tractor beam, allowing the Assurance to hit the surface of Entelior IV at a much lower impact speed and with less casualties among the crew.
