The Zhukov was seen only in "Data's Day." In that appearance, the registry on the hull was given as NCC-62136 and its name was misspelled as "Zuhkov." These markings were not visible on screen and were later determined to be production errors. The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 575) had a diagram of the Zhukov with the erroneous registry.
In "Brothers", the Zhukov was identified as being a Rigel-class starship with the registry NCC-62136. A corrected registry of NCC-26136 later appeared on a chart in the observation lounge in "The Chain of Command, Part I".
The Zhukov had appeared in a number of non-canon works.
Similarly, the video game Star Trek: Starship Creator established the Zhukov as Reginald Barclay's first assignment.
In the video game Star Trek: Bridge Commander, set in 2378, the Zhukov was assigned to Starbase 12 as a support ship. It escorted the USS Sovereign back to Starbase 12 after the latter suffers a breakdown of its warp systems. It could be later chosen to assist the player in a tactical attack at the Alioth system. In the game, the ship was commanded by Andorian Captain Milus Verata.
