I'm a bit late to the party with this comment, but I wonder: at some point, might someone on the crew be upset at Isaac not because of the Kaylon invasion, but perhaps due to one (or more) of their crewmates being turned by the Arachnid* which he let get away? *According to the end credits of that episode, the bug creatures in the Kalarr Expanse are being referred to as "Arachnid Aliens". ----- Also, there were hints leading up to this episode that the Union was at risk of "losing the peace" as regards the Krill negotiations, even before Teleya's rise to the office of Supreme Chancellor. It seemed that they were far too eager to convince themselves that Krill sentiments would change so drastically in the Union's favour in the wake of the battle for Earth, despite even one of the Krill delegates involved in the negotiations bluntly telling them that he expected the alliance to be dissolved as soon as the Kaylon were no longer a threat. They seemed to be fairly clumsy in terms of their cultural outreach efforts, too. Which is not to excuse the reaction that led to Teleya's victory. But I do wonder whether or not the Union leadership ought to have taken a more measured approach towards improving Union-Krill relations, in order to give the more pragmatic elements of Krill politics and society more road to run on. Speaking of Krill society, I also can't help but wonder how much of the anti-Treaty sentiment is tied to the economic issues glanced at in this latest episode. If there is a significant underclass of poor or disadvantaged voters forced to live far from the neon lights of the Grand Marketplace, there might also be an electorally significant group with so little to lose, they'd latch onto whoever offers them a way out - only to find out the hard way that some paths lead to even more nightmarish outcomes than others.
