For other uses, see Charon.

In the mirror universe, the ISS Charon was a Terran Empire starship, a colossal palace in space, and flagship of the Empire, in Imperial Starfleet service in the mid-23rd century. The Charon under the command of Captain Maddox and contained the throne room of Emperor Philippa Georgiou. The ship was several kilometers long and powered by a star-like energy ball enclosed in its catamaran-made hull. (DSC episodes: "The Wolf Inside", "Vaulting Ambition")


Emperor Philippa traveled across the quadrant aboard the Charon to confront Michael Burnham for not destroying the anti-Terran rebellion on Harlak quickly enough. Georgiou had the planet carpet-bombed. (DSC episode: "The Wolf Inside")

Burnham, still posing as her counterpart, and Gabriel Lorca, travelled on shuttle to the Charon, delivering themselves into the clutches of the emperor. When Burnham revealed herself as a Human from the primary universe, Georgiou killed most of her Terran lords (bribing the remaining lord with the governorship of Andor to ensure his silence) to prevent the spread of this secret. (DSC episode: "Vaulting Ambition")

The Charon was destroyed by the USS Discovery shortly after Lorca freed his followers, and wrested control of the ship from Emperor Georgiou. (DSC episode: "What's Past Is Prologue")
