"Attention, Klingon leader, I am Admiral Brett Anderson. I speak with the authority of the entire Federation when I propose a cease-fire so that we might resolve this conflict with no further bloodshed."
– Admiral Anderson to the Klingon zealot, T'Kuvma 

When Admiral Anderson warped his flagship - U.S.S. EUROPA into a binary star system to assist U.S.S. SHENZHOU, he could not have imagined that his ship would be one of the first major casualties of the Klingon War.

Designed for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY by John Eaves, the NIMITZ CLASS EUROPA was seen in Discovery's second episode, "The Battle of the Binary Stars." A massive ship of the line, EUROPA had four warp nacelles and a RELIANT-like roll bar that held both scientific and defensive equipment.

NCC-1648's arrival on screen during the battle temporarily saved Captain Georgia's own ill fated U.S.S. SHENZHOU, but at an enormous cost as EUROPA fell prey to the even larger Klingon Cleave Ship. This cloaked enemy vessel intentionally collided with the Federation flag ship, splitting her saucer section with a huge blade and comprising the Klingon ship's entire bow.

However, Admiral Anderson had one final play to make in the battle-- he set his ship's warp core to self-destruct, destroying the Klingon warship in the process.

U.S.S. EUROPA may not have the history of other venerable Federation starships, but she made an amazing entrance, and an exit to remember!
