Thread in which /strek/ celebrates the return of the greatest currently-running Star Trek series for it's second season.

Would have been decent as a mid season filler episode, but kind of a trainwreck as a season opener. If you're not yet invested in the characters you won't care or really know them afterwards, if you don't know what the series as a whole is, you'll still be as clueless after this opener.

Meh, still-feels-like-/strek/ outa 10. Hope the next one is better.

Yeah, it was a bad episode and a worse season-opener. It was basically an ensemble character episode like if Data's Day was split between six crewmembers, lacked narration, and was about essentially nothing. I'm really disappointed that the Mercer-Grayson relationship angle is persisting into season 2. I was hoping that would become extremely played-down similar to Picard-Crusher. It just seems really implausible and dumb. Also, i think the two actors that we were introduced to this episode are both going to be recurring characters and one is a fucking male school teacher literal male Keiko (snor). So, it looks like relationship shenanigans are definitely on the menu. I lost count at 4 with how many scenes opened in a bar or restaurant. This is not how you do Star Trek.

The thing is, the ep was four B-plots woven together where if they were paired with strong A-plots in separate episodes, it would have been just fine. So, it really wasn't bad material per se (unless you were really looking for powerful jokes, because there werent any). It was just a weakly-constructed episode. It very much feels like it belongs as a mid-season filler episode in a 22-episode TNG season, not as the opening shot in a season that has half that many episodes.

>Anon, say something nice about it

Halston Sage and Boyhips were stand-outs in the acting department. Both seem to do really well with this kind of material. Bronze medal for Cisco's girlfriend's acting as well.

>any closing thoughts?

They should have billed this as a Season 2 Prologue special episode (S02E00) and promo'd it as having a relationship theme so we were warned. The timing, a Sunday night the day before New Years Eve works as sufficiently off-routine. I wonder if this wasn't supposed to actually be a Valentine's Day episode (Season 2 will still be airing the February) but Halston Sage's departure/absence during production caused some re-shuffling to occur with all her previously-shot episodes / scenes being pushed-forward in the season. That's pure speculation, though. It's a really strange choice for an opener, though.

Well I gave it a watch. I agree as a season opener it's pretty bad. As a filler episode though I think it's actually a good episode but you have to know the characters already for it to be good.

I have noticed the jokes seem a lot less forced and come across as natural banter between the crew which I honestly kind of like. It was sort of a comfy episode overall and if I were to apply the /strek/ rating scale I probably might give it a 4/10 although that might be pretty generious.

I was keeping an eye out for some eastereggs since I know they are a fan of hidding old Star Trek props in the scenes. Might have to do a scene by scene analysis at some point.

Good episode but a bad way to start a season. It feels like different side stories shoved into a bottle episode. The rythm is fine but it feels a bit crowded, especially for a season premiere, that said it does a good job of introducing new characters.

It was nice to see Jason Alexander having a cameo in the episode. He's a big fan of the show.

I recall season 1 music reminding me a lot of later TNG music, which was nice (even though i have a soft spot for that very 80's early TNG synth score). This episode sounded much more cinematic. Looking forward to where they're going with it because they really hyped up how the show is expanding this season.

Judging by people's reactions outside of /strek/, apparently Joe Normie Multiple Divorcee eats that shit up. Personally, I could tolerate it if it wasn't shoved into every single episode.

On the topic, Seth MacFarlane is supposed to be ~5'10". Adrianne Palicki is supposed to be ~5'11". But in every scene where the two are alone together, it looks like Grayson is at least a half a head taller than Mercer, either because Mercer is slouching, or he's seated at his desk while Grayson is standing, or they're using some sort of Dutch angle bullshit or perspective trick to obfuscate their relative heights.

Are they deliberately setting up the shots this way, or am I reading too deep into something that's not there?

Hey, Willy Sasso is in this episode, the bartender I think. Also one of the co-producers is called Cherry Chevapravatdumrong. What a name.

Lt Tylor is kinda cute. Issac's voice is slightly deeper than it was last season.

>>28228

Don't actually mind a character driven episode. But I would have put it further back in the season after a high intensity episode. As a season opener, it is getting us re-acquainted with the crew and I hope the next one is better.

It was a watchable episode, though I wouldn't have put it first in the season if I was in charge. Would have been nice with something a bit more actiony to kick off the season. Maybe set some stakes or something else to set the themes and issues for the season..

Not sure why all the parents are freaking out over teenagers drinking a little booze, but that might just be because I'm not from a place where its illegal to drink until you are 21. Its just teenagers being teenagers.

Because in the future everyone thinks like a post-modern American social progressive. :^)

Joking aside, the kid hacks a replicator, he can have any material possession he wants, illicit or otherwise, and he goes for a bottle of potato liquor? Really? That's like stealing a luxury car and robbing a bank just so you can go through the McDonald's drive through. Plus, remember when Grayson replicated some pot brownies so she could get high on duty and nobody batted an eyelid?

To keep from exclusively bitching and nitpicking, the alien guy with the eye stalks playing the piano at the party? He was actually playing the piano instead of just miming the movements with a dubbed in soundtrack. That's a nice touch. I think they did the same thing with Issac giving the kid piano lessons, but I'd have to back and check. It's not like it'd be difficult to get a trained pianist to put on the robot suit for that one shot.

there was definitely some jew camera angle fuckery that didn't sit well with me this episode. I didn't like some of the shots at all. I found myself annoyed with the ready room scene with Kelly talking down to Ed and him looking like a whipped dog when it was a few scenes too early for that sort of setup. He hadn't done the "drive by" yet. It would have been a better scene all-around if he would have gotten up and gazed out the window (foreshadowing) and then have them do the scene on more equal footing (literally) - although, Ed was again cucked this episode no matter how its shot.

She worked on Family Guy, and they even make a joke about her name on the show in at lest one occasion. IIRC, Lois says something like, "at least you don't have a ridiculous last name like Chevapravatdumrong." In fact, if you actually pay attention to the credits, you'll see that lots of people that worked on Family Guy had their names referenced randomly in the show. An example off the top of my head is when Brian makes that porno and goes to that awards ceremony, two of the guys nominated for best porn soundtrack are the actual two guys that made the music for FG. Also Will Sasso is awesome.

Another episode that was cringey and hard to watch, but that comes together at the very end. I think the one with Rob Lowe from last season was a doozy for me, too. I can appreciate on some level that they literally worked a Gay Niggers from Outerspace joke into the show itself and thematically I'm cool with what the show is saying - particularly with regards to porn - but ultimately you're still watching gay shit on television. I think if the episode had actually been funnier, it would have played a lot differently. The jokes are becoming very flat and dry, to the point where I was wondering if what it needs is an actual laugh track.

I think i'm starting to agree with critics that The Orville needs to figure out what it wants to be. I like the MASH -tier humor, snarky one-liners, and non-sequitur humor, but cringe humor is not working at all. I love cringe humor (obviously, im a faggot who posts on south pacific stone statue head carving message boards) - it's in my soul - but one thing my shitposting career has taught me is that you have to be willing to go all-in if you go cringe. For instance, Isaac or Lamar should have casually murdered the gayniggers on the holodeck when they were in the way. It was logical and in-keeping with the "in your face" edginess of the earlier homosexuality and Bortus' getting stabbed. It also could have been really funny, but it wasn't going to happen for (((reasons))) and that's fine.. so don't show the gay imagery either.

>Say something nice, anon

The music in this episode was fantastic. I heard several of my favorite TNG themes being referenced, like the haunting bit of music from the TNG episode where they board that trapped, derelict ghost ship. The visuals were pretty great, too. A lot of cool details if you look closely.

Fun Fact: this was the episode that Nana Visitor was supposed to guest star in. She was meant to be the leader of the dying planet.

It's so good to watch a show that has an actual score and not some shitty playlist. I've heard that the composers have carte blanche on The Orville. Each episode has its own theme, it reminds me of Ron Jones' work on TNG (that's how he got fired lol).

There was quite a few homages to Trek in this episode I noticed. From Broccoli's holodeck addiction, a less violent version of Klingon Divorce, the music, hell the whole Sun thing was something they did in TNG a lot.

I also wonder if there is going to be porn made of Krill housewives now? There's already some Orville R34 involving a surprising amount of pickles.


30f748  No.28291

I thought this second episode was pretty weak. The porn addiction should have been thought up in advance so that Bortus could have left early a few times last season. They should have gone with something less human for the porn addiction so that the whole thing wasn't as on the nose. Although Bortus' race being all serious maaaaaaybe puts enough of a juxtaposition to have push the idea that primitive species still have illogical drives. Unfortunately, there isn't a main character that's not enough human like for it to be interesting and also for us to have had enough time to get to know the character.

Apprently, this episode wasn't planned to be the first one. That's why the opening scene felt so out of place from the previous episode.

The underground civilization plot felt very hammed in. And the rescue was a total shit show. The look exactly like humans. They speak English despite having never been discovered for any translator to work. They could only fit 30 on even though the vessel looked empty when they took off. Their radiation suits were better than the Orville's one?

Is The Orville a part of the Star Trek universe? I have never watched Star Trek so I have no idea at all, but I watched the first season of the Orville with my dad, and he said it looked like Star Trek, even though he haven't actually watched Star Trek, since he thinks it is for nerds.

It would be ironic, since he thinks The Orville is great. I only watched it with him for the company, personally I think (((Seth's))) messiah complex of solving every problem in the universe for everyone was cringe inducing.

I tried to humorously implore my dad past the gay sex bits that it was implied in TNG if you read between the lines that Barclay and Geordi bonked holograms on a regular basis, and if Riker struck out in Ten-Forward, unloading his load in a holo jazz club was just a real thanks to the binars. Everyone on Trek was fucking holograms, they just couldn't show it…

Also, the S2E2 bit when Bortus goes to engineering, and the giant space tardigrade is running the engineering console (if you didn't watch STD it was a dig at the "spore drive" plot involving tardigrades, and an abundance of gay sex themes in the show) whose race is known throughout the galaxy for making the best porn… for which Bortus request gay orgy porn, and he's like "no problem"… and then the program introduces a virus (STD notoriously referenced stuxnet source code as an easter egg reference to the tranny social justice warrior "hacker" that decompiled it) >>>/trek/159 - that whole subplot justified the existence of this episode for me as it was deeply constructed jab at Discovery

Kind of lower than I expect but if it can hold a 3 mil audience throughout the series, I'd say it's pretty good. S1 had averages of 4 to 3.5 mil per episode in it's weakest viewer-ships. This doesn't account for delayed casts or streaming so there's still a strong viewership out there for it. A decline in viewership is to be expected and vultures like this want Orville to fail.

This guy is Sasso I think.

This is what Orville is about. Good character focused episode about someone we like. This and last season's Alara episode was another solid one. New Security chief is that mean girls? actress Jessica Szhor and she's called Talla. I think Alara may return at the end of the season or probably at the start of S3. Salara is kinda cute as well, wonder if she'll be back.

Also a very pretty episode, they stepped up with the CG.

>Clarinets used for most of the episode.

Good stuff.

>Can't ask if Yaffet is splitting in half.

Hah. Also said he was going on leave so this might be an excuse to kick his actor to the curb.

YT has a trailer up for the next ep, Ed gets abducted by Krill and he has to go alone.

Alara more like Sayonara. They put way too much emphasis on the ending with her hugging everyone. She wasn't developed enough for me to sympathize with her departure.

I swear there was several Trek actors and extras in this episode that I can't put name to.

Certainly a good character episode, I felt there needs to be a few more of these in Season 2 for each character to flesh them out a bit more.

>>28501

That first pic I felt if out of context could be made a banner for /zoo/

That second pic leads on what I will say is that there was a lot of nice establishing shots in this, sort of how TNG used to do back in the day with paintings that never aged well.

Nice. Wonder if they'll bring back the Krill girl from the last one.

As much as I love the music on that show, it usually starts before the scenes I want to cut.

Slowpoke. Just saw episode 1. I feel like right off the bat they're handling the humour better. Feels like they're going more for humorous twists on familiar Star Trek tropes, rather than just supplanting Family Guy humour into regular Star Trek episodes. Hopefully they keep that up.

I didn't like it. It was the same story that's been in a thousand other TV shows: character wants affirmation from rich parents who were somewhat pushy and never encouraged character's interests, character does thing that makes parents realise their career choice was valid, bonding occurs. It was dull and predictable.

Plus it was weird that Alara and her dad had that big make-up scene not one minute after she finished shooting Phlox. Do her parents not have any reaction to the fact that their daughter just killed two people? Actually that should have been the whole episode: Alara does some security thing on her home planet, her parents are horrified to see her shooting people, and then she has to win them over and convince them that she does an important job and is not just a murderer.

The ending was dumb too. Oh, my parents finally accept my career after years of disdain? Guess I'd better quit my job now.

I think you're right. This episode would have been great if it focused on that.
