Why the spaceship is moving forward and not up ?

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

public class Landing : MonoBehaviour
    public float speed = 3.0f;
    public Vector3 direction = Vector3.up;

    // Use this for initialization
    void Start ()

	// Update is called once per frame
	void Update ()
        transform.Translate(direction * speed * Time.deltaTime);

Vector3.up is (0, 1, 0) and 1 is the y so it should move up slowly but instead it’s moving forward.
What am i missing here ?

Hello @Chocolade !

Is the spaceship a children of another object?

Is the object Rotated?

Is the script in the “oldest” gameobject (children-parent)?

Give more info.
