The Discovery is considered a Galaxy block III ship having built in improvements from the first of the Galaxy class ship. The other alteration from standard Galaxy class vessels is the colony bay. The USS Discovery has a three deck high bay in the lower center of the saucer with landing craft positioned around this area (the orange circles).
Starbase 600 Discovery
Galaxy class - diSodium refit GXC Heavy Cruiser. Grand Lady of the Far Sector Fleet. The Discovery is noted as being a platform to advancement. No less than three future admirals have commander her. She was the first Starfleet ship in the region and opened up Oz. She was sent in the deep unknown to plant the Howard Colony, now known to be a red herring and fools' errand, but yet Discovery accomplished and excelled at her mission. A mission the designer of which doomed it to failure. She succeeded in spite of dread conspiracies and overwhelming odds. She is considered a lucky ship to serve on.
Discovery is now a cut down Galaxy. She is re-engined with diSodium and ready to serve. By this point she is almost considered quaint in design. Her interiors are slightly frumpy by the latest standards. The bee motif she got during the Kurr refit has been maintained. In spite of the fact that the diSodium conversion ripped ten decks out of the ship filled in the colony bay and and rebuilt the entire power system.
She has octoclopes turrets port and starboard on the saucer. She has class 12 phasers and ion disruptors. Class 12 shields. Class 20 sensors. Shuttles: 30 shuttles various kinds. Captain’s Yacht
