An escape pod is a small maneuverable capsule allowing quick escape from a starship or starbase for various reasons. Most vessels and bases have more than one escape pod.

Escape pods are usually utilized when a ship or base is heavily damaged and may be destroyed. All Starfleet vessels and bases contain sufficient number of escape pods to ensure the entire crew and all non-Starfleet personnel can be safely evacuated.

A minority of Klingon starships lack escape pods. (ENT: "Sleeping Dogs", "Bounty", DS9: "Penumbra")
