I will warn you season three of Orville has a Very distinct change in tone for much of it. Story is still there, but Way less jokes.


I'm 3 episodes in and it's... OK. Still wildly inconsistent, can't quite figure out what it's doing. Spoilers ho!

Spoiler:
1 - Isaac finally faces consequences for almost exterminating the human race and kills himself. An interesting and touching discussion of suicide however is undercut when someone remembers Isaac is a robot and they can just reboot him. So uh, no consequences.

2 - Monster of the week as the Orville flies into uncharted space. Could these be the New Horizons they spoke of? Nope! After meeting the monster promptly turns around and flies home and promises to never go there again. Also has a pet peeve of mine where a military officer conducts diplomatic negotiations, which should be done by a civilian in any government except a military dictatorship. (This REALLY bugged me in Babylon 5 where Earth's Space UN rep was a navy captain).

3 - Mind #$%^ episode. Not a bad mind #$%^, but still just a mind #$%^.

Yeah I'll stay tuned for more but like I said it's OK. Around the level of ST Enterprise reruns.

I have to imagine we see more of episode two’s villain. They’re basically Orville’s version of the Borg, but organic instead of technological.

I'm sure we'll see them again. But I was getting excited with the idea of the Orville stranded in uncharted space besieged by alien monsters, unable to get back home since the Krill (sp?) had sealed their borders...

But no. They just went home and decided not to go back there ever again.

I haven't even finished the episode and I don't care.

Lower Decks finally fething gave me something I wanted from this damn revival; a follow up of any form to DS9.

That episode of Lower Decks... 17 out of 10. It took 23 years of waiting, but I finally got to see the station after the Dominion War. That whole episode tugged at my heart strings so hard. Not gonna spoil anything, but any DS9 fan should watch that episode. That was magic.

And the last episode was no slouch either. Boimler's outburst alone made the entire episode worthwhile.

New Picard trailer from NYCC 2022. All I can say is

cannot correlate their innate inferiority with their inevitable
defeat. It would seem that stupidity is as eternal as war.'

Do we know who the gal captaining the other ship is? And I’m guessing Top Hat is Moriarty?

As it is the same actor, yes. It looks like he was confirmed to be in season three recently.

Figured it was him, was even reminded of his existence by the first issue of the Lower Decks comic here a couple weeks ago as he was heavily referenced and relevant to the plot.

I'm getting the feeling that season 3 is going to be the season everyone kinda wanted Picard to be when it was first announced.

I also wonder if the whole 3 season plan might fall apart if season 3 really takes off well!

He is a Klingon who worked in security, military and command for long enough that whilst he might take the path toward peace and pacification; he's not a fool. So he knows how important a blade/phaser/arming torpedoes will be. Interestingly it might just be a slight humous part seeing the other on the command deck telling him to ready and fire the weapons and having him refuse/counter when during the series it was normally the other way around - Worf declares they should raise shields and weapons and Picard countering.

Given Worf’s sense of humour, and no further context? Probably a joke.

I was just reading that even those names are easter eggs. From STAR TREK: PICARD Reveals Its Final Season Villain, Another Familiar Face, and Brent Spiner’s Role:

Along with “Brett,” both “Alandra” and “Sidney” were named as La Forge’s children in the “All Good Things…” alternate future!

Another absolutely outstanding episode of Lower Decks. S3 has been fabulous. I squealed like a little girl when I got to see the Sovereign class again, it's just such a beautiful ship.

My only complaint is that we are already at episode 8 and the previous two seasons were 10 episodes long. So we are only 2 away from another long break :(

I’m disappointed we haven’t seen the Vulcan gal. I figured when she was “demoted” to Star Fleet she’d end up with our crew, but alas.
