USS Europa, NCC-1648

The USS Europa, a Federation Starship

The USS Europa is a Federation Starship in the 23rd century.

Little is known about its crew or missions, but it appears to take either heavy damage, or get destroyed in the first season of Star Trek Discovery.

It is believed to have a designation number of NCC-1648.

Europa’s warp nacelles are below its main saucer section, and are held in place by arms that bend over from atop the saucer section.  This aspect is reminiscent of the USS Reliant, however the Europa does not appear to be a Miranda Class starship.  We can see below the Europa’s warp nacelles are farther back than the arm that extends to them from the main ship.

The USS Europa’s saucer section appears to have cutouts.  Were it not for the length of the USS Discovery’s warp nacelles, the Europa and the Discovery would be fairly close in size.

    After seeing a number of trailers, I think this is a re-imagining. CMDR Burnham is arrested and sent to the brig. She is given a second chance and joins USS Discovery as 1st Officer to help stop a war she started. I think she was in command if the USS Europa when it was destroyed. My best guess.
