Taela Shanthi was a female Human Starfleet officer in the 24th century.

By early 2368, Fleet Admiral Shanthi was the Commander-in-Chief of the Federation Starfleet. During the Klingon Civil War, she met with Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard Starbase 234, where she approved his plan to blockade the Klingon-Romulan border using a tachyon detection grid. (TNG episode: "Redemption II")

In 2370, Captain Picard reported to her after discovering Admiral Erik Pressman's plot to recover an illegal Federation interphase cloaking device from the wreckage of the USS Pegasus. Shanthi assured Picard that there would be a full inquiry once the USS Enterprise reached Starbase 247. (TNG episode: "The Pegasus")

Sometime before 2373, she commanded the USS Thunderchild on its shakedown cruise. (CCG set: Blaze of Glory)

In 2374, during the Dominion War, Shanthi chaired the first joint conference between the Federation, the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Star Empire, and the Cardassian "government in exile." (DS9 novel: Hollow Men)

Shanthi retired from Starfleet sometime before 2380. In January of that year, she appeared on Illuminating the City of Light to discuss the first two months of Nanietta Bacco's term as President of the United Federation of Planets. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)
