Re: ORV S2: Deflectors

OT as far as this episode is concerned.

I was wondering if the Planetary Union also has a ship called The Wilbur. But I realized that the Planetary Union corresponds to the United Federation of Planets in the Star Trek universe, and Starfleet is the Federation's space-exploration agency. Is there an agency in "The Orville" that corresponds to Starfleet? The writers seem to be using the same terminology for the government (Planetary Union) and for the space agency.

Re: ORV S2: Home

@Karl Zimmerman again

By citing that line said by the Elephant Guy, I was assuming that when you said "The humor was entirely absent for once, except for the double esophagus guy," you meant the character himself, and not anything in particular he said.

Did you (you = all the commenters) see that alien who was humanoid with two eyes, but one eye was directly above the other? That was pretty cool.

@Karl Zimmerman

"The humor was entirely absent for once"

How about when the Elephant Man -- who I'm pretty sure was Joe Swanson (Patrick Warburton) from Family Guy -- said his previous captain "totally had a boner for [him]"? (It wasn't funny, but it was clearly meant as humor.)

Re: ORV S2: Primal Urges

@SlackerInc

"I am stuck with the barbaric scenario as regards this show of having to watch it live on antenna with no recording available, since FOX does not make full episodes available any longer on its website for 'cordcutters' like myself, and I don’t have cable or satellite for a signin, nor do I subscribe to Hulu."

I don't have satellite or cable either. Do you have a smartphone and/or a tablet? The episodes are available from the iTunes Store and maybe from Google Play. If you have a smart TV you can stream the content to the TV.

Re: ORV S2: Ja'loja

What was the point of having Jason Alexander play the bartender? That could have been anybody in that costume so far as the audience knew.

I didn't think this was a good episode with which to start the new season. (Yes, I know it was a first-season show that was held over until the second season.)

"the plants traveled [through] space to that planet"

Yes, I remember that. Why does the reviewer seem to go out of his way to say that the plants were indigenous to the planet?

Re: TOS S1: The City on the Edge of Forever

@Debra Petersen

"The developing relationship between Kirk and Edith was beautifully done. When Edith first encountered Kirk and Spock she could easily have dismissed them as common thieves. But she seemed to instinctively recognize that they were much more than that, and to understand their closeness, even though there were things about them that puzzled her."

One of my favorite scenes in this episode is where Edith, asked by Spock where she would estimate they belonged, said to Kirk something like, "And you -- you belong to a different place. I don't know where or how . . . I'll figure it out eventually." As she says this, Kirk has a half-smile and a look on his face, and then we see Edith with the same half-smile and look on her face. This was when I first understood the concept of "chemistry" between performers (even though the actors were not necessarily looking at each other or were even in the same room at the time). The deep intellectual and emotional connection between Kirk and Edith -- Shatner and Collins really sold it.

Re: TOS S2: Metamorphosis

@dgalvan

"To make it all the worse/insulting, Kirk has a one-liner where he said 'I'm sure the Federation can find another diplomat to prevent that war.'"

Actually, he said, "I'm sure the Federation can find another woman to prevent that war." Which of course is worse.

Re: ENT S2: The Communicator

Apropos of the reviewer's quite correctly saying that the transporter should have been mentioned: T'Pol tells Hoshi to start scanning for Archer's and Reed's bio signs, and Hoshi argues, "There are 10,000 people down there!" Yes, but only two of them are human. They might have given themselves an "out" by expositing that humans' and the planet's inhabitant's bio signs were nearly indistinguishable from each other -- but the episode went out of its way to show that human physiology was very different from the aliens' physiology.

Re: ENT S1: Vox Sola

I wonder why they didn't consider beaming the crew members out of the cotton candy. Of course, it wouldn't have worked, because that would have been the end of the episode, but they could have at least mentioned it, with Phlox saying something like, "The transporter can't tell the difference between the crew members and the cotton candy," i.e., "Their neural patterns and the creature's are far too joined to risk using the transporter."

"Darmok never had hostile intentions towards Picard"

That's an excellent point; however, Darmok was the guy in the legend that Paul Winfield's character was trying to tell Picard. Winfield's character was Dathon.

Re: ENT S2: The Catwalk

Archer tells the crewman with the crossword puzzle that the first Vulcan ambassador to Earth was named Solkar. In ST:III, T'Lar calls Sarek "child of Skon, child of Solkar." "Solkar" might be the Vulcan equivalent of "Smith," but I believe we were expected to think that the first Vulcan ambassador to Earth was Sarek's grandfather.

Re: ORV S1: Pria

By destroying the wormhole in the twenty-fifth century, the Orville caused it to not exist in the twenty-ninth century, meaning Pria could not have used it to travel back in time. I think it also meant that the crews that Pria "saved" (by taking their ships and depositing them in the future) died anyway.

Re: VOY S4: Waking Moments

Harry didn't scream because he was kissing Seven; he screamed because he saw the alien. Though you'd think that space explorers in the twenty-fourth century would innately accept that there are other species that look different from ours and not freak out upon seeing one of them.
