The USS Tikhov (NCC-1067-M) was a 32nd century Federation starship, a small seed vault ship in Starfleet service in the 3180s decade. Around that time, the Tikhov was operated by a Barzan family during a mission to guard the seed vault. (DSC episode: "Die Trying")
Service history and disposition
To accommodate the Barzan family aboard, the Tikhov's environmental systems were programmed to Barzan II atmospheric conditions.
In the same year, the time-displaced USS Discovery arrived at Federation Headquarters. Fleet Admiral Charles Vance gave the 23rd century crew a chance to prove itself by rescuing the Tikhov-M. Discovery used its spore drive to jump to Tikhov's location, and pulled the stricken Federation ship with a tractor beam. A landing party, including the Barzan security officer Nhan, visited Tikhov. Attis soon succumbed to the effects of a transporter accident. Discovery's Barzan security officer, Commander Nhan, assumed command of the Tikhov-M to bring its mission to conclusion, and promised to return the bodies of Attis and his family to their homeworld.
- commanding officer:
- Attis' wife (until 3189)
- Amma (until 3189)
- Tolpra (until 3189)
- This ship may be named after the Human astronomer Gavriil Adrianovich Tikhov.
- The -M suffix of the registry number reveals this is the 14th ship named Tikhov bearing the registry number NCC-1067. Since the Tikhov was said to have been active since the 23rd century, it is likely that previous Tikhovs have also been seed ships.
