Towards the beginning of the episode, Captain Pike asks the computer to show him Starfleet's rendering of the seven signals, then to 'rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise'. He doesn't specifies around which axis, yet the computer rotates it around the vertical axis, even though it could have been another one. Also the rotation starts exactly when he begins to pronounce 'counterclockwise', so the computer couldn't know at this time, in which direction to do it. See more »


[Discovery is about to jump via spore drive]
Saru: Questions or concerns before we depart, Captain?
Captain Christopher Pike: If you're telling me that this ship can skip across the universe on a highway made of mushrooms, I kinda have to go on faith.
Captain Christopher Pike: [to all] Be bold. Be brave. Be courageous. Black alert.
Tannoy: All personnel, black alert.
Captain Christopher Pike: Let's jump.
[Discovery jumps]
Captain Christopher Pike: [gasps, then chuckles] Whoo!
Saru: You never forget your first, sir.
