The fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) was a large cetacean, a baleen whale, indigenous to planet Earth.

In the year 1986, a model of the whale was displayed in a glass case at the Cetacean Institute in Sausalito, California.

By the late-23rd century the fin whale, along with all the other types of great whale, was extinct. (TOS movie & novelization: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
