The USS ShirKahr (NCC-31905) was a Federation Miranda-class starship operated by Starfleet in the 24th century.

During the Dominion War, the ShirKahr participated in the 2374 invasion of the Chin'toka system by the Federation Alliance. It was destroyed after taking heavy fire to its primary hull from Cardassian orbital weapon platforms. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

While the name and registry number of the ShirKahr was visible on screen, the ship's appearance in "Tears of the Prophets" was later confirmed by John Gross and Karen Sickles of Digital Muse in a 25 June 1998 post, by DS9 Visual Effects Supervisor David Stipes, on the newsgroup alt.tv.star-trek.ds9.
The ShirKahr was named for the capital city on Vulcan that was featured in Star Trek: The Animated Series first season episode "Yesteryear". (Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 274))
