Wasn't expecting so many ST alumni to be present in last week's episode.

Spoiler alert








Captain’s holiday is always a fun thing in Star Trek. No different here. A tad predictable once it happened. Has shades of other Star Trek episodes. Will be sad to see the guest star disappear. Seemed a wasted potential. Could have been fun to see the dynamics of double dating.

Uncanny, almost spooky show exit of the same senior staff position as on ST:TNG season 1 ;D

Spoiler: show

Wow, she's rumoured to be Charlie Puth's main squeeze!  :o... I can see why, she very cute!  :-*

Yeah, kinda reminds me of the Piccard - Famke Janssen episode :)

Spoiler: show
I'm guessing it won't be the last we'll see of "Janel'.

I’d agree the Orville is excellent, light entertainment, but I disagree that ST:D is crap… it’s just a lot heavier but a new classic nonetheless I feel.  :P

I can now understand why the first few episodes of S2 are relatively low budget. Wait till you get to this week's episode where I think the 80% of the budget went.

Not that anything is wrong in a low budget episode. TNG used to do this a lot - and still had great stories. Orville did this too with the first few episodes of the season.

But this big budget two parter really does pay off. Won't say too much except that I really love this episode even more.

For the record, there is nothing wrong with STD as a TV or even scifi show. I just don't find myself as compelled to watch each episode as it comes out - and I didn't have the same glee or anticipation as when I watched TNG or DS9 - and now with Orville. I devour each episode as it becomes available. STD is definitely a ST2009 era ST - which I also enjoyed for its more modern /darker flavor.

Been catching up on Discovery and have to say I do like the latest Red Angel arc

But Friday night - gave the missus the choice. Discovery or Orville.

We chose Orville.

And what an amazing episode.

Leighton Meester

Also best Gordon episode to date.
