Humpback whales in computer

Phylum search mode in progress

Phylum search mode was a mode of the HMS Bounty's computer database that allowed it to search through various lifeforms by their respective phyla. It also had a voice profile feature that enabled it to match a sound to those already in the database.

In 2286, Spock searched the database using this mode to confirm that a probe of unknown origin was seeking humpback whales on Earth. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Animals in the searchEdit

The following animals' calls were analyzed as possible matches for the sounds coming from the Whale probe. They are listed in the same order in which they appeared.
