Finding an alien vessel adrift and on a collision course with a star, the Orville finds a colony unaware of their plightÂ……

The Trekzone Review

The Orville tackles the science fiction trope of tackling a real world issue with a space setting. And in an indictment for the human race, it’s a trope that’s been dragged out by Star Trek since the 60’s… once again, though, this show demonstrates it’s not afraid to get its hands dirty with dramatic plot lines sprinkled with a modicum of one liners.

One thing I think I missed on this episode was the Klyden/Bortus thread from the last episode, and obviously there was a lot happening in that day aboard ship.. but after the first part of the first act, we never saw that again.

We learn that medical science in the Planetary Union allows for the non-invasive extraction of bullets and regeneration of plasma in the body, we see a communications buoy and the first Krill ship destroyed.
