    Default The Orville: 'Firestorm'



    A fire breaks out on the ship, and a crew member dies; Alara questions her fitness for the job; unusual things start happening on the ship.
    Alara's probably my favourite character, so I liked this spotlight on her.

    The simulator reveal was a bit of a surprise, I really thought the storm was the cause.

    The incidental music continues to impress.

    Agreed on all counts. I love Alara to death.
    Guest appearance by Robert Picardo
    This episode was written by Cherry Chevapravatdumrong.

    The scene with Kelly and the abyss made me think of the TNG episode where Picard was about to enter a turbolift, and instead of the small confines of a TL car, he sees subspace.

    Glad to hear it.

    Been doing alright myself. I think (knock on wood) hurricane season is finally over.

    I really liked this one as well. I think the writing team has found their sweet spot with the humor and drama. Can't believe it's already episode 10!
    The United States has become a place where entertainers and professional athletes are mistaken for people of importance.

    I was overjoyed when a second season was announced.
