"Dr. Floyd: [prerecorded message speaking through TV on board Discovery while Bowman looks on] Good day, gentlemen. This is a prerecorded briefing made prior to your departure and which for security reasons of the highest importance has been known on board during the mission only by your H-A-L 9000 computer. Now that you are in Jupiter's space and the entire crew is revived it can be told to you. Eighteen months ago the first evidence of intelligent life off the Earth was discovered. It was buried forty feet below the lunar surface near the crater Tycho. Except for a single very powerful radio emission aimed at Jupiter, the four-million year old black monolith has remained completely inert. Its origin and purpose are still a total mystery."

USS StargazerEdit

Stargazer dedication plaque
Michael Okuda has commented on the class name:
"The Stargazer dedication plaque did say "Constitution class," but we had already decided to drop that designation, even during preproduction. I asked Ed Charnock, our on-set painter, to mist over the plaque with a little black spray paint, to make it a little harder to read "Constitution". There wasn't time (or money) to have the plaque re-made, but the type was so small that it would have been very difficult to read the text on camera, even without the smudge. Also, the set lighting was dark, so I wasn't worried." [X]wbm
The motto is inspired by the science fiction short story and subsequent novel written by Daniel Keyes Flowers for Algernon:
"They had pretended to be geniuses. But they were just ordinary men working blindly, pretending to be able to bring light into the darkness. Why is it that everyone lies? No one I know is what he appears to be."
Okuda further commented on the plaque:
"The dedication plaque indicated that the ship was built by "Federation Space Systems," and gave the ship's motto as "To bring light into the darkness." Herb Wright suggested that one." [X]wbm
