    About as solid Moclan as it could get. How many recognized the teacher, Counselor Troi?

    I haven't watched it yet, but knew she was going to be on it already.


    At least they got off thier ship ... which they do about twice a year it seems ... maybe a few more.

    Seems like I remember her being in a TNG episode where she was also in the ship's classroom with kids as well. Appropriate way to include her in tonight's episode.

    I am very disappointed to find nothing but a Fox news program recorded as Thursday night's Orville episode. I have an H3 on Eastern arc. Anywhere to get this episode backfilled?

    I don't believe so, Fox is a National network ...
    You will need to go thru the Activate process, but its free.

    Solid episode for me. Maybe enough Moclan and their sex crisis for awhile but a good episode.

    I didn't look at it that way. It came across more as a women are being oppressed in a culture (ie. it was directed at Saudi Arabia, classic Trek style storywriting about oppressed people). I thought it was a solid episode.

    Loved the word's of the female right's leader Dolly Parton. :D

    This. I am tired of this species. The original idea, it seemed to me, was some commentary on the male nature vs. the female nature, in a society w/o the female nature, such as the planet was very poluted, the homes were undecorated, they made all the weapons for the Union but had no art or literature; and perhaps a politically safe zone to comment on homosexual issues (which ST:TNG did well in a past era with the episode about the non-gendered species).

    This is like the fifth episode about these people. It is just not interesting.
