'''L'Rell:''' Not the term I would choose, Captain. However, the Klingon Empire will always fight to preserve our future.\\

** When ''Discovery'' enters the wormhole, the visual effects on the bridge crew are identical to ''Enterprise's'' brush with a wormhole in ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture''.

* BlatantLies: When Pike, Spock, Tyler, and Number One are debriefed after the battle, they all claim that ''Discovery'' tried to spore-jump from the battle, but exploded. It's pretty obvious that they took the time to get their stories straight, and the admiral points out that it doesn't explain certain sensor readings.

Added DiffLines:

* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: As per Spock's recommendation, everyone with knowledge of ''Discovery'' and her true fate is ordered to never speak of her again under penalty of treason.


* DamageControl: ''Enterprise'' deploys a number of DOT-7 drones to help repair the hull damage, while Tilly re-energizes ''Discovery''[='=]s DeflectorShields.

** Saru quotes Sun Tzu, much to Georgiou's surprise. Over a year ago, Saru recognized another Sun Tzu quote by his own Georgiou.



** Intentional or not, the premise of the space battle serves as a CallForward to the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Yesterday's Enterprise", where the starship Enterprise must protect another federation starship from an attacking fleet while so the other ship can travel through a temporal anomaly. While the TNG example had the ship traveling back in time to prevent a war with the Klingons, this episode has the ship traveling ''forward'' in time to prevent a war.

Added DiffLines:

* OnceMoreWithClarity: Spock realizes that the red signals that led ''Discovery'' on a season-long chase across the galaxy were Burnham's doing, to prepare for this battle, by setting up elements that would allow our heroes to win.

Added DiffLines:

* TimeForPlanB: And when ''that'' fails...
--> '''Una:''' Captain, plans A and B didn't work. We're now into the "Hail Mary" part of the operation.\\
'''Pike:''' That's been just about everything today.


* ArtisticLicensePhysics: That blast door to the briefing room aboard ''Enterprise'' must be MadeOfIndestructium indeed for Captain Pike to feel basically no effects from an armed photon torpedo (read: an uncontrolled [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill matter-antimatter explosion]]) going off mere meters away. Pike even ''watches the explosion'' through a transparent window in the blast door and doesn't even appear to be blinded, while Cornwell is [[HeroicSacrifice vaporized instantly]] on the other side. ''Some'' of this can be explained as the explosion taking the path of least resistance out into the vacuum of space, but it's pretty jarring when the ''Enterprise'' loses most of the forward quarter of her saucer section while Pike survives at what is essentially point-blank range.
