Discovery Alien Ship Classes

33rd CenturyBa'ulSphereUnknown

 

For the sake of consistency, the Alien ships of Discovery are listed separately from those of classic Trek, just like the Starfleet ships and the Klingon ships of the series.

 

33rd Century


V'draysh escape pod

General description

This is an escape pod of the V'draysh in the 33rd century, equipped with an entertainment system that includes media files from the "Long Ago".

Known pods

No name given
 

Annotations

The one-off design from SHO: "Calypso" is listed here due to a lack of a better place in this database. "V'draysh" is a corruption of "Federation", according to writer Michael Chabon, but it appears as very alien.

Ba'ul


Fighter

Known shuttles

No name given

Sentry ship

General description

The isolationist Ba'ul operate a fleet of sentry ships on the planet Kaminar. These ships are very large and trapezoid-shaped, with a ingle big engine exhaust and extendable sensors or weapons. In attack (or defense) mode, the ships assume an upright attitude.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. We can see ten of the sentry ships in DIS: "The Sound of Thunder".
  2. The size of the Ba'ul sentry ships is not consistent. When the Discovery gets surrounded by them, they are many times bigger than the Federation ship. When they withdraw a few minutes later, they are about the same order of size.

Sphere


Sphere

General description

The Sphere was a vast amalgamation of organic and anorganic matter and was rated as a sentient lifeform. It was over 100,000 years old and has been recording data about countless star systems and civilizations during that time. As its end was near, the Sphere transferred its data to the USS Discovery from where it could not be deleted due to an advanced protection algorithm. The origin of the Sphere remains a mystery, and its existence is denied by Starfleet.

Known spheres

No name given
 

Annotations

The Sphere appeared in DIS: "An Obol for Charon" and entailed a story arc in the course of which "Control", the AI built by Section 31, would run out of control to acquire the data from the Sphere to become sentient. In every possible outcome Control would eventually get hold of that data and wipe out all life in the galaxy. When all attempts to delete the data from the ship's memory core or to destroy the ship itself fail, USS Discovery eventually departs to the far future, out of reach of Control, in "Such Sweet Sorrow II".

Class specifications

Diameter: 565km
Mass: 6.3910^20kg

 

Unknown


"Squid ship"

General description

Many unknown ships of this type may cause the destruction of all sentient life in the Galaxy some time in the future. They fire torpedoes and missiles, each of which is capable of blowing up a whole planet.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

Spock saw these ships in the vision the "Red Angel" shared with him, as he revealed in DIS: "If Memory Serves". We have no definite information when these ships will be built and by whom, but it appears to be that Control, the evolved AI, is responsible.
