The USS Biko was a 24th century Federation Oberth-class starship operated by Starfleet.
In 2369, the supply ship rendezvoused with the USS Enterprise-D at Deinonychus VII after an initial delay of forty-eight hours. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas")
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 44) stated the ship was "
named for Steven Biko
, South African civil rights activist, martyred in 1977."
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 44) gave the registry number of this vessel as NCC-50331 and incorrectly listed it as an Olympic-class starship.
For the appearance of the Biko, stock footage of the USS Cochrane from "The Drumhead" was used, with a planetary backdrop added. The footage includes the registry number.
