The USS Comet (initially NX-83103, later NCC-98100) was a 25th century Federation starship, the prototype Comet-class reconnaissance science vessel in Starfleet service from the 2400s decade. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
Service history and disposition
The Comet class entered service in the year 2409. Its design was an evolution of the Luna-class science vessel, in service since the late 2370s. As the Luna was named for Earth's moon specifically, the Comet was named after comets in general.
In Starfleet Shipyards Operations shipyard interfaces, the Comet visually represented the fleet tier 5 recon science vessel configuration of the Luna-class family from 2410 onward. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
In early 2411, at some point after stardate 87971.0 and soon after the Shattering of the Klingon Empire, William T. Riker's legendary starship USS Titan underwent a refit to become the lead ship of the new Titan-class science destroyer. As part of the process, the Comet was retrofitted into a fleet-version of the science destroyer. The ship retained its hull structure but received upgrades "under the hood", and the new registry number NCC-98100. (STO website: It's the Titan!)
