The Crossfield class[2] was a 32nd century Federation starship type, a tier 6 science spearhead refit[2] of the 23rd century Crossfield-class[9] science vessel in Starfleet service from the late 3180s[9] decade. The first vessel of this configuration was the time-displaced USS Discovery (NCC-1031). (DSC episode: "Scavengers")

History and specifications[]

The Discovery arrives in the future.

The 2250s-era Crossfield-class science vessel Discovery travelled from the year 2258[5] to the future to prevent the rogue AI Control from seizing the sphere data and eradicating all organic life in the galaxy. Discovery arrived in 3189.[4] Although the vessel was technologically outdated, Fleet Admiral Charles Vance reinstated Discovery as a Starfleet vessel when it proved the capacity of its spore drive during the rescue of the seed vault ship USS Tikhov-M. (DSC episode: "Die Trying")

While docked at Federation Headquarters, Discovery spent three weeks undergoing a refit. The 88[4] surviving crewmembers received current Starfleet equipment, and programmable matter was integrated into the ship's systems. Captain Saru noted that even its warp nacelles were now detached, to improve maneuverability. The vessel also received the new registry number NCC-1031-A. (DSC episode: "Scavengers")

The USS Glenn in 2411.

Like the 25th century Glenn-class refit of the 23rd century Crossfield-class, the modern refit lacked the spokes between the ring segments of the saucer section, and the deflector dish was replaced with its modern counterpart. (STO website: Legendary Temporal Operative Science Vessel, DSC episode: "Scavengers")

The vessel was now armed with 32nd century phaser arrays and photon launchers typical of the era. (STO website: The Janeway Class Takes Flight)

Starfleet ships of this era were equipped with a 32nd century Federation cloaking device. (DSC episode: "Su'Kal", STO website: The Janeway Class Takes Flight)

Discovery is captured.

The Discovery-A was captured by Minister Osyraa of the Emerald Chain, a cartel hostile to the surviving Federation. (DSC episode: "Su'Kal")

With its improved deflector shields, Discovery withstood concentrated fire of the Federation starships docked at Federation HQ during Osyraa's Trojan horse gambit. (DSC episode: "There Is A Tide...")

Captain Michael Burnham.

Discovery-A in 2411.

Starfleet recaptured the Discovery and the Emerald Chain splintered following Osyraa's death. With Saru on a sabbatical on Kaminar, Vance appointed Michael Burnham as commanding officer. Discovery's mission was to escort deliveries of dilithium to Federation and non-Federation worlds and facilities. (DSC episode: "That Hope Is You, Part 2")

Due to time travel, the Discovery-A or another version of itself visited Khitomer Alliance space in the year 2411[10], and the Allied Fleet Service gained access to the Crossfield-class science spearhead refit. (STO website: Command the Crossfield of the Future!)
