USS Shepard
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2286)

According to the script for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home [1], the USS Shepard was a Federation starship that was in service with Starfleet in the late 23rd century. Shepard was under the command of Captain Clampett. The Shepard's communications officer was Trillya.

The Shepard was among the vessels disabled by the Whale Probe approaching Earth in 2286.

In the distress call relayed to Starfleet Command from Trillya, it was noted that the ship had lost all power and that the captain had quarantined all but minimal support crew due to failure of bio-sterilizaton capsules containing the Vegan D virus, which was believed to have infected the entire crew and was responsible for the deaths of fifteen crew members. Trillya further noted that the Shepard's atmospheric regeneration and reclamation systems were nonfunctional, and all medical supplies were spoiling due to the shutdown of refrigeration aboard the ship. She warned that life support systems would be exhausted within eight hours, and requested further advice from Starfleet in resolving their situation.

The Shepard was named after Alan Shepard, the first American in space.
