The USS Europa (NCC-1648) was a Federation starship, a Nimitz-class vessel in Starfleet service in the 2250s decade. It was the flagship of Admiral Brett Anderson. (DSC episodes: "The Vulcan Hello", "Battle at the Binary Stars")

Service history[edit | edit source]

On stardate 1207.3 (May 11, 2256), Admiral Anderson of the Europa and Captain Philippa Georgiou of the USS Shenzhou consulted over how to deal with the Klingons discovered in a binary star system on the edge of Federation space. The Europa was one of the closest Starfleet ships to Shenzhou. (DSC episode: "The Vulcan Hello")

Later that day, the Europa arrived when the Battle of the Binary Stars between Starfleet and a Klingon fleet, led by the fanatic T'Kuvma, was already underway. The Europa towed the barely functional Shenzhou away from an asteroid but was rammed by a cloaked Klingon ship. To rob the Klingons of their victory, Admiral Anderson had the crew evacuate, and engaged Europa's self destruct, also destroying the attacking vessel. (DSC episode: "Battle at the Binary Stars")

In November 2256, the prisoner Psycho told inmate Michael Burnham that a cousin had served on the Europa at the time of the battle. (DSC episode: "Context Is For Kings")
