    Interesting that the first two episodes were very Bortus centrist.

    3rd episode of the season was a good one. Nice to see John Billingsley appear in the show.

    This was a good, albeit sad episode. I always fall for tearful goodbyes. :(
    Was funny seeing two former Starfleet doctors in one episode. I think I also saw one of the wives before as a Vorta.

    She was the first Vorta in DS9.

    True, but I would have loved it if she had returned.

    I finally watched it. It was a really good episode, restoring my faith after the silly first two episodes. It was a lot more sad and serious than I expected, which I liked. For a minute, it looked like she was going to stay and I was wondering if MacFarlane duped the internet, but, alas, it was not to be.

    The only thing that I didn't like was the little bit of humor, not that there was some, but that it was so recycled. The interim security chief was of the same awkward-slob-who-says-"sweet!" mold that we've seen before, particularly in Dan. MacFarlane really needs to come up with some fresh humor or let others help him write it.

    I think the humor in this situation is how out of place he seems, not how he talks.

    Good episode.

    Again, I was taken aback by how well the visuals delivered. Production values were top notch.

    A relatively simple character plot but it worked well.

    It's funny how easy the Orville can make it look while everything about Discovery tries way too hard. (sorry to bring it up in this thread, but it's ridiculous)

    Loved seeing Robert Picardo. He really is the heart and soul of Trek post-TNG.

    They're one and the same. The way that he talks and carries himself is why he seems out of place. It's funny, just less so when the joke's been used several times already.

    There was nothing wrong with the first two episodes. Both had pretty good messages, especially the 2nd one
