    That would have to include the origin of the Borg....

    Obviously, the people who experimented with cybernetic implants to accidentally turn themselves into the Borg, were pushed by Annorax to know better and they created the Kaylons instead.

    IDK - It would be hilarious if "Star Trek" (the show and it's various spin offs) actually did exist in "The Orville"'s universe in the 20th and 21st century; but alas it seems only FOX related shows/films like "Planet of the Apes" and "Alien Nation" and "Predator" exist. ;)

    I see the plot coming fro ma mile away. The only thing I don't know: Will this be like Finn and Isaac, where in the end they are a couple? I can imagine a season three joke:

    Ed: "No, you'll fit right; we all have weird love lives. One of our Engineering staff is a pile of Jell-O that is sexually attracted to a human female. Said human female is in a serious relationship with a robit that tried to exterminate of her race, and our helmsman is dating a hologram. Oh, and I dated a woman who turned out to be a Krill operative."

    Star Trek would have to exist. Seinfeld definitely exists, and they did an episode all about TWOK.

    Yet somehow is still more thoughtful and challenging than Trek produced in the 21st century. :techman:

    As distinct from Trek, which to this day - despite the occasional f-bomb - takes place in an alternative timeline when dialogue and characterization has barely moved on from the 1960s.

    Well, you can't argue with that answer.

    Not so much, if it's a sensible post.

    Song's kind of meh on its own. Hopefully it works better in the actual episode itself.

    Pretty cool to see the crew interact with objects that are super familiar to us but not to them.

    I'm a little disappointed when they were commenting on Gordon's clothes, they didn't say "What are you, coming from a Star Trek convention?" :)

    Wondering if Gordon is going to look her up. For all he knows, Laura was a famous singer in the 2020s...


    Ohh Moclan fight!
