One of the Federation ships coming to the U.S.S. Shenzou's aid is called the Shran, probably named in dedication to Commander (later Ambassador) Shran from Star Trek: Enterprise
(2001). Another ship is called the Edison, probably named after Thomas Edison, or perhaps Balthazar Edison from Star Trek Beyond
(2016). In the prime timeline, Edison was a decorated veteran of the Xindi and Romulan wars, and went missing with his ship, the U.S.S. Franklin, shortly after the founding of the Federation. See more
Right after Burnham has finished talking to Sarek we see the USS Shenzhou fly past undamaged. In the previous exterior pull away shot there was major damage and large and sections of the hull were missing around the brig. See more
Members of the Federation. What you call your most remote borders, I call too close to Klingon territory. You only live now to serve as witnesses of Klingon supremacy, to be my herald. We do not desire to know you. But you will know our great houses, standing as one under Kahless, reborn in me, T'Kuvma!
