I counted what seemed to be three “faces” for Isaac. One with the familiar wide apart “eyes”, one in which they were close together and inside “ tunnels”, and one (in profile) where they appeared to be quite bulbous.

YMMV

He had a fourth face in one episode:

I thought it was super-appealing.

I’ve been thinking again...

On STAR TREK, the holodeck employed transporter technology to create some of its bells and whistles (one reason I would NEVER use one!), but the Orville doesn’t have transporters.

So how do the simulators work?

"but the Orville doesn’t have transporters."

Holy crap, I am only now just realizing this.

A reference was actually made to this fact in the Charlize Theron episode. When she demonstrates “future technology” Ed comments that it’s good to know they’ll have teleportation eventually.

(I suppose the point could be made that the replicators use something like transporter tech, but only at short range.)

While they don't have transporter technology, they do have replicators (called matter synthesizers on the show), which work on the same principle of converting energy to matter.

Does anyone else pick up the 70's vibe running through the series?

Have to catch up on the last couple of episodes, but this show is more STAR TREK than the last two series combined.

Y’know it occurs to me that they missed the opportunity to air the previous episode tomorrow, on Valentine’s Day! Would have been a perfect fit.

Realizing just now that Claire--not my favorite character--has been the central focus of my least favorite and most favorite episodes.

I think this is probably my favorite episode of the season so far.  An excellent balance of drama and just enough comedy.  And I definitely like Talla a lot more than Alara.  Talla just feels more "real and genuine".

This episode was, in its own way, just as appropriate for Valentine’s Day as the last one. Talla finally gets some real exploration as a character, and it works well.  A David A. Goodman script directed by MacFarlane certainly seems to make for a good combination.

Lots of interesting dynamics in this one, to say nothing of the continued paying off of the groundwork laid for Moclan culture in various episodes (as well as Bortus and Klyden’s relationship). The Moclans are basically the show’s tool for exploring all sorts of LGBT-ish issues, and this episode manages to combine a sort-of-coming-out romance story with a murder-mystery exploration of hate crimes and bigotry. 



...”Time-index 1701.7”, huh? (wink)

I have to agree with Mercer at the end, questioning how long the alliance between the Moclans and the Union will last.

Yes, I'm hoping they explore how the Moclan culture works within the
Union when their values clash so much,

If this was Star Trek, they'd have already been kicked out of the Federation. At some point, the Union is going to have to deal with them somehow.

Talla putting Klyden in his place at the end was great.

After this episode, I feel they are building up to Moclus leaving the Union and Bortus being an outcast from his culture "Sins of the Father" style.

I liked the episode. Man, Klyden has become the "heel" of the show.
There should be plenty of sociopolitical subjects to keep this show running for a while, but I would not be opposed to a good ole fashioned strategic/battle episode.

on a side note I finally figured out what the Moclan ship reminded me of. It looks just like a carabiner I own.

++++++++

I’ve had the distinct feeling that all of the slow buildup regarding both the Moclans and the Kaylons is gonna have some kind of payoff, down the line. And, in regards to the Kaylons, Issac is the only one we’ve seen...for now.
