Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
- A Vulcan scoutship encounters a Klingon warship near H'atoria. The Klingons, disappointed by the weak and peaceful nature of the Vulcan race, immediately open fire and destroy the Vulcan ship. After analyzing the situation, the Vulcans conclude that Klingon psychology requires displays of force in order to engage communication. In every encounter thereafter, the Vulcans show force by firing first at Klingons, usually facilitating a balance of power in further interactions. 240 years later, Commander Michael Burnham would refer to this as the "Vulcan hello".
