In S01E04 of Star Trek: Discovery TV series:
Paul Stamets: Time is an essential component of good science.
Captain Lorca: Discovery is no longer a science vessel. It's a warship.
Paul Stamets: That is not the mission I signed on for. I'm not a soldier.
Captain Lorca: Well, then get off. Leave the ship.
Paul Stamets: If I go, I'm taking everything with me. My spores, my drive. This entire ship was designed around my scientific specialty.
Captain Lorca: Everything on this ship is the property of Starfleet, Lieutenant. How do you wanna be remembered in history? Alongside the Wright Brothers, Elon Musk, Zefram Cochrane? Or as a failed fungus expert? A selfish little man who put the survival of his own ego before the lives of others.
Well, Wright Brothers are inventor of airplane and Zefram Cochrane is inventor of warp drive. But, why is Elon Musk a big historic figure comparable to Wright Brothers and Zefram Cochrane? What did he do?
