What is the source for the pitch going to SONAR in past tense? I never noticed that before. -- Redge | Talk 02:15, 11 Aug 2004 (CEST)

When Degra, Archer, and Hoshi are flying in the shuttle to the council chamber in "The Council", Hoshi is reviewing the Aquatic language. After Degra advises Archer on how to talk to the other members, Hoshi says, "When Aquatics use the past tense, they switch to SONAR."-B-101

Then I guess I can hear SONAR, because I never noticed a change of pitch when they were talking before that episode. -- Redge | Talk 13:56, 16 Aug 2004 (CEST)

I don't think someone can easily notice and hear it when the Aquatics are speaking in SONAR. I don't even know what SONAR sounds like, but to me it is indistinguishable from the hums the Aquatics also speak in.-B-101

The entire line makes absolutely no sense, since SONAR refers to the act of navigating by sound, not a particular sort of sound. Perhaps she was referring to the usual "ping" noises used in SONAR, but otherwise the line is akin to my saying "In the afternnoon, instead of drinking coffee, I decided to drink basketball."
