    They reproduce in litters? The Ferengi are trying to start a zoo? Crashed transport unleashed them in to the wild?

    The Ferengi probably obtained a breeding pair through dubious means and since it seems Mug/Gum-ato's are a horney lot, it just took off from there.
    :techman:

    Also, we don't know exactly how long they've been breeding them.
    (and apparently, the creatures are Bi-lingual & Tri-dexterous) :whistle:

    This was ok, not as good as ep 2 or 3, for me. The main conflict (Boimler and Rutherford being suspicious of Mariner) felt forced. Even though I liked the outcome (B + R are badass with their brains!). And nice to see anoter unusual pairing with those two. I did like Tendi's storyline. 7/ 10.

    ETA: They're going to kill off Shax again, this time for good, at the end of the season, aren't they?

    This was my favorite of the season so far. Again, I love them switching up the dynamics by having Boimler and Rutherford together this week. Lower Decks continues to develop its character so well; arcs are properly set up, developed, and resolved by the end in an incredibly satisfying way.

    My bet is that he'll end up like "Kenny" during the early days of South Park. They'll kill him off at the end of every season; and then by the second or third episode of the next season, Shax will be back on duty like nothing happened.

    Never watched South Park, but that was my second guess: Just kill him off every season... poor thing!

    I laughed. I liked the Mugatus and Ferengi. An 8.

    I don't think the mugato masturbating his horn requires any more explanation than Ferengi lobes.

    Also: our first post-ENT peek at Denobulans. Awesome. :)

    DSC mentioned them in the Mirror Universe but we haven't seen one in canon since the ENT finale.

    Killing that Steve Irwin Tellerite was a bit much I thought. Also Mariner stabbing him in the hand isn’t sparring. That’s assault and should be in trouble for that.

    Why wasn't Worf tried for assault on a superior officer? I have a feeling this sport has a huge waiver to sign.

    If Starfleet officers can show up in sickbay after having broken bones during Holodeck sex, I don't think anyone's going to be court martialed over sparring injuries.

    Yeah, that was one of my suggestions too, except that the tuskhorn probably doesn't have sensitive nerve endings (unlike a Ferengi's earlobes, which are said to he especially sensitive), so the creature shouldn't be receiving pleasurable feelings from that part of its anatomy.

    I'm leaning towards a sexual display of phallic coordination. Alternatively, the tusk does have strong sensation, but that seems unlikely given its use in combat.

    Sorry, but the Mugato mating scene was disturbing.

    Yeah but that could be seen as a accident. She deliberately stabbed the poor guy.
    Would have been better if they just let Boilmer win. She doesn’t need to one up everything
