The SS Shiku Maru (NBT-30894) was a 24th century Federation starship. This vessel was commanded by Captain A. Silvestri.

On stardate 35056.4, this starship encountered a Tamarian deep space cruiser. Though the encounter was peaceful, the crew of the Shiku Maru were unable to establish communication with the Tamarians due to language difficulties. The ship's captain described the language of the Tamarians as incomprehensible. (TNG: "Darmok")
