"Take us out."' - FAdm. T'kr, ordering the first departure from Earth Spacedock.

The USS Discovery (NCC-91031), named for the USS Discovery (NCC-1031), is a Federation Emissary-class star cruiser variant, custom designed by Fleet Admiral Ghr Hth T'kr.

Commissioned in late 2409, shortly before the Undine attack on Earth Spacedock, she is a veteran of the Vaadwaur Conflict and the Iconian War.

Her black hull patterning is intended to be both a reminder to T'kr of his homeworld, as well as an ominous warning to those who would threaten the Discovery, her crew, and the Federation at large.
