U.S.S. Glenn NCC-1030
The Federation Starship Glenn, a Crossfield class vessel, was conducting joint research on spore drive technology with the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 when it suffered a catastrophic accident during a jump, killing all of the crew. The ship was later boarded by Klingons, all of whom were killed by the sole surviving life form aboard, a tardigrade-like creature later named Ripper by the crew of Discovery. The Glenn was destroyed by Discovery to prevent the spore drive from falling into Klingon hands, while Ripper was surreptitiously brought aboard by Commander Ellen Landry, under orders from Captain Gabriel Lorca.
