All things can be understood once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.” This was the motto of the USS Discovery when it was launched into service.

Officially designated a Crossfield class science vessel, the Discovery’s facilities could accommodate 300 discrete scientific investigations at any one time.

However, Discovery’s mission statement would change drastically after the Battle at the Binary Stars in 2256.

With Starfleet stretched thin and the Klingons advancing toward Federation space, Discovery was pressed into service as a warship, one that would turn the tide of the conflict. The key to Discovery’s military success was its unique spore drive, which allowed it to travel galactic distances in the blink of an eye.

This incredible technology made Discovery invaluable to Starfleet’s war efforts and its captain was given virtually limitless resources and jurisdiction to fight the war as he saw fit. The USS Discovery, once a science vessel built for research and experimentation, had become the tip of the spear in a war for the fate of the Federation.

Best USS Discovery Crews

Discovery PVE Crew Suggestions

Captain: Christopher Pike
Officer: Marlena Moreau
Officer: T’Laan

This combo is better against interceptors but can also be used against Battleships or kinetic based weapons.

Captain: Jean-Luc Picard
Officer: Beverly Crusher
Officer: Grace Chen

This is a good crew combo against non interceptor ships.

Discovery PVP Crew Suggestions

Captain: James T.Kirk
Officer: Spock
Officer: Leonard McCoy

A good crew when you want to do player vs player fighting in your discovery. Below deck crew should focus on defense.

Captain: Yuki Sulu
Officer: Alexander Marcus
Officer: Khan Noonien Singh

This crew combo focuses on reducing your opponents shields quickly allowing you to bring the pain on their hull. When in doubt I use this combo.
