U.S.S. Discovery XL Edition was a Crossfield-class science vessel, active in mid-23rd century, and was equipped with an experimental spore-drive, capable of transporting the vessel across vast distances in an instant. The die-cast U.S.S. Discovery XL Edition was hand-painted with intricate detail using references from CBS Studios own archives of designs and CG models. The model captures the bronze beauty with its segmented saucer section, along with a triangular secondary hull and elongated nacelles.
