Zora was the name taken by the computer of the USS Discovery after the ship had been abandoned for almost a thousand years. The computer had, over the centuries, developed an artificial intelligence complete with a personality.
This personality was gendered female and had a predilection for the 1957 film Funny Face, starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. A holographic representation of Zora also performed a dance of the film with Craft on the bridge of the Discovery. (ST: "Calypso")
Zora's genesis appeared to date from the year 3189, when the Sphere data, which had been stored within the Discovery computer, began to merge with it, causing the computer to speak in Zora's voice. (DIS: "Forget Me Not")
