A shakedown cruise tests a new or recently refit starship's systems, determining any faults or problems, as well as any performance issues.

In 2364, Ethan Arden from the Starfleet Corps of Engineers came aboard the USS McKinnon to assist her crew with their shakedown cruise after a refit. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Perfect Girl")

In 2371, on Stardate 48650.6, the USS Prospect-A responded to a distress call during its shakedown cruise. Damage to the ship during the scuffle was light, but Captain John Greene expressed he'd hoped those at the commissioning ceremony hadn't roughed up his new ship too much. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles)

In 2389, on Stardate 66150, the HMS Prometheus undertook its shakedown cruise while fighting Klingon pirates, capturing a freighter used by the House of Korgath. (RIS Bouteina: "Hystelic Kingdom")
