That was hilarious.

But you know what was funnier? When they exited the 2-dimensional space, and contact was reestablished with the shuttle craft. Capt. Mercer and John were sitting there with TP sticking out of their noses.

That whole sequence reminded of the movie, Tron, 9MM.

Oh, and I don't think that was the season/Fall Finale. I checked, and there seems to be another episode this Thursday (12/07/17).

I'd guess the second in command. It had better not be the cute chief of Security.

That's the movie! Thanks
How exciting that there is another episode this week. This is the show that just keeps on giving.

Oi.
Is the title or promo out yet?
Damnitall, that would be horrible. I don't want anyone to go out yet.

NO no no, not Kelly, not Alara. I could only handle it if it were Yaphet. And his departure could be hilarious, but I've also grown accustomed to that large green booger character as well.

I think I would miss that character the least. Hopefully it isn't one of the others.

Weird choice of a finale. They seem to mainly avoid the enemy of the Union in most episodes. Which is the opposite of what ST does.

So a nitpick I have is that the Union would obviously station a ship at that planets respawn point permanently. They could ask for ways to ensure peace in the galaxy every time they appear. And it wouldn't take very long before they would be the superpower in this galaxy.

While the story was interesting it creates a lot of issues.

I guess there was no death. I don't follow the show other than in this thread and the only reason I picked Kelly as the one to die is that she would have the second biggest impact. And they aren't going to kill off Seth's character. Her dying to the enemies of the Union would change the crew and show a lot though. And like the Berman/Braga Trek shows, they tend to avoid getting too dark or dealing with war much.

Thank goodness this did not happen. During the episode, I thought for sure it was going to be Data Isaac. This little rumor caused a lot of discussion here, which is a good thing.

Bortis always makes me LOL and his goofy game of lethal potato did. What a way to add something funny and then have it as a segway to an important point of the show with that healing wand. I want one of those devices almost more than I want a tricorder. This was fine writing imo.

Possibly the reason Kelly disobeyed rules was that she was still feeling the effects of her alcohol from the night before. She is rule adherent for the most part, and is the part of the duo (Captain and 1st mate) she is the one that brings everyone to that level on the ship. Mercer is more lacidazicle in that respect.

"The end" came close to being preachy (as in the Moclan society of men who gave their female baby a sex change at birth episode did) as other terrans claimed if it werenít Kelly, the exact same stuff would be happening in another godís name. Her presence may have shaped the details of the religion, but not the need to believe. Faith was integral to those people.
The episode, however, was very enjoyable, unlike the sex change episode was, and the statement making ending I could over look.

I hope to rewatch this show during it's long hiatus
.
Please oh high over lord of Kelly, please let the upcoming sophomore season of this show be like it's freshman year. Great stories, minimal preaching and additional episodes. Amen

Re: The Orville - Fox Thursday

yep, glad I heard wrong on the rumors - tho we didn't see Yaphit right?

(I can't hear Yaphit's name without thinking of Yaphet Koto.)

I guess as long as they keep the new race's ships in their own universe, they won't need to be dealt with much. And agree with Frodo, it creates plot issues in that the Union would totally go to the other universe to exploit the higher science/tech.
