In starship classification, a garbage scow or waste barge is a freighter outfitted for the transport of toxic or otherwise dangerous waste or, more generally, garbage.

In general, very little was thought of garbage scows. To serve on, or to command, a garbage scow, was considered one of the most undesirable postings in the Federation and Lyran Starfleets. Vox'ula once insulted Brianna Reiss by telling her that her place in the Lyran Starfleet was that of a garbage scow captain. (RIS Bouteina: "Varlamov Steak")

Compounding matters even further, Akeelah considered command of the Enterprise the only command in the entire Lyran Starfleet more undesirable than the command of a garbage scow at the time of the Enterprise's launch. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Highly Illogical")
