Robinson was the Starfleet name given to a Jem'Hadar fighter when the vessel was captured by Starfleet in 2373 on Torga IV. Later, during the Dominion War, the Robinson was used in an attack on a ketracel-white facility. Sisko named the vessel for Jackie Robinson. (DS9 episodes: "The Ship", "A Time to Stand", "Rocks and Shoals", WizKids module: Tactics)
In 2373, several personnel from Deep Space 9, led by Benjamin Sisko, witnessed the Jem'Hadar fighter crashing near them on the surface of Torga IV. Determined to salvage the vessel for the valuable information on Dominion starships it represented, Sisko led his team to the fighter, where they were forced to take refuge within when Kilana and her Jem'Hadar soldiers laid a siege outside. Sisko's team later discovered that a Changeling Kilana was attempting to rescue had survived the crash, albeit critically injured, within the vessel. The Changeling died soon after and Kilana allowed Sisko to salvage the vessel. (DS9 episode: "The Ship")
In 2374, Sisko commanded the Robinson on a mission into Cardassian space to destroy a ketracel-white facility. The plan was to transport an ultritium explosive to the facility with the ketracel-white canisters, however, when the crew attempted this, the facility raised its shields. The explosive detonated soon after, allowing the fighter to escape, although the warp drive was damaged and disabled. (DS9 episode: "A Time to Stand")
The fighter was later attacked by two other Jem'Hadar fighters and Sisko ordered Jadzia Dax to pilot it into a dark matter nebula. The fighter was damaged en route and was caught in the gravity of a planet within the nebula, forcing it to crash into an ocean on the surface. Sisko's team were able to escape the fighter before it sank. (DS9 episode: "Rocks and Shoals")
