In the script this ship is called the Shiku Maru --Rebelstrike2005 14:20, 25 Mar 2005 (EST)

I found out that there are actually two articles. I placed a redirect on the incorrect page if that's okay. - Rebelstrike2005 14:23, 25 Mar 2005 (EST)

Federation vs. StarfleetEdit

According to the script for "Darmok":

	         STAR TREK: "Darmok" - REV. 7/10/91 - TEASER         2.

2    CONTINUED: (2)

				DATA
			Federation vessels have
			encountered Tamarian ships seven
			times over the past one hundred
			years. Each meeting was without
			incident, but formal relations
			were never established because
			communication was not possible.

					RIKER
			Why?

					DATA
			The Children of Tama were called
			"incomprehensible" by Captain
			Silvestri of the Shiku Maru.
			Other accounts are comparable.

Like the case with the USS Horizon/Horizon (starship), I see no evidence that this ship was a Starfleet vessel, specifically, with a "USS" prefix. This seems to be confirmed in the Star Trek Chronology and Star Trek Encyclopedia, which stated that it was simply a "Federation vessel", versus a "Starfleet vessel", mirroring the dialog. --Alan del Beccio 22:33, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Shiku Maru...Shikamaru... Edit

...strange similarity in the names, don't you think?

Trek was first! ;-) --Jörg 19:05, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
