History[edit | edit source]
Specifications[edit | edit source]
In the year 2159, these vessels were equipped with two phase cannons and one spatial torpedo launcher, and were protected by polarized hull plating. The Discovery-class was commissioned as a fast exploration scout, even more so a specialty of this class when extra power was diverted to the engines. (ST video game: Legacy)

Background[edit | edit source]
The game software included numerous other names for ships of this class that were not prepared to be used in gameplay, and are hidden in the game's source code, including USS Dunn, USS Cropper, USS Ferrone, USS McBoeb, USS Mattacks, USS Bell and USS Mercury. Possibly, these vessels were intended for some feature of the game that was not completed. For example, none of these ships are coded with registry number graphics like those the included ships possess.
