TFS Discovery was the Terran Survey Command frigate commanded by Howard Anderson in 2205 when he made first contact with the Orions.

Name-ship of her class, Discovery was refitted after winning the First Battle of VX-134 with improved missile launchers and also served in the Second Battle of VX-134. After this point, with Terran destroyers and light cruisers in service, she was considered too small for frontline service.
