I will have to ask the author why he chose that, but if it is indeed a mistake I can certainly have it rerecorded.

Update:

I spoke with the writer and it is indeed correct as he understands the 'heading system'. He points out two resources that go into detail of what the numbers mean. Suprisingly, 360 is not a complete circle in the Trek Universe.

Anyway, here are the resources:

In the third season of TOS many writers seemed to forget the 360 degrees is equivalen to a full circle. I KNOW what the author was probably going for, but I do wish you guys would not try to adhere so closely to the original TAS as there WAS a lot that could have and should have been done better; and I for one would love it if you guys kept the good and discarded the bad.

At least you guys haven't done the 'random background at wierd angles behind the character as he speaks' yet; and I honestly hope you never do.

Also, as someone who;s done and directed voice over, I would hope the VO director does a little more work with the Captain as sometmes he lacks energy and very occassionally sounded more lie he was reading a line then speaking it. VO acting is a bit different then 'regular' acting; but overall, I was impressed with a majority of the cast's work.

(And I hope you don't take any of the above as a 'swipe'; the work that's been done to date has been good, but I think there's always room for improvement if people are willing).

Looking forward to part II.
