As Pike was about to be killed, the Magefferans, expressing confusion over Spock's lack of reaction, stopped and allowed Spock to explain his teachings to them. After the incident, Pike talked with Spock, suggesting that he keep his controversial opinions to himself, but felt that his decision to bring Spock on board was the correct one.
