The U.S.S. Tsiolkovsky was a Starfleet scientific research vessel with 80 crew members in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In 2364, the ship's mission was to study the routine collapse of a red supergiant star into a white dwarf. They were to rendezvous with the USS Enterprise around star date 41209.2 as a result of a series of odd transmissions. The transmissions were that of a drunk crew and during their last communication with the Enterprise, an emergency hatch was blown off. Upon boarding the Tsiolkovsky, the Enterprise away team found the ship with food, wine, and discarded clothes. The inhabitants of the ship had been infected with an unknown strange virus which makes humanoids feel as if they were intoxicated.
