I don't think Identity Parts 1 or 2, or combined, were as good as BOBW Part 1. That just was a jaw dropping season finale, one that was so good that they didn't know how to match it, and certainly not exceed in it in the lackluster BOBW Part 2. Looking back, I wish that they had made BOBW a three-parter, and used the second episode to actually show the Battle of Wolf 359, and it could've been in that episode they sneak introduced Sisko instead of the pilot of DS9. (I really liked the opening of Emissary, but I would've been fine to have gotten more of Sisko, the Saratoga, and the overall battle in a second episode, with the TNG crew capturing Picard and the end of that episode and then working to free him from the Collective in the third episode.) I was hoping they would've included that sliver of Emissary or maybe some new footage of Wolf 359 (perhaps splicing in some scenes from the Borg video game) when they released the Blu-Ray of BOBW a few years back. It got a theatrical showing and I wish they had sweetened the pot by adding some new stuff, like showing us the Endeavour, the Roosevelt, and perhaps the Borg Queen. I don't think Identity Part 2 was much of a letdown for me because I'm not as invested in the Orville characters. I thought, as it stands by the end of Part 2, that Isaac got off a bit too easy, but who knows what MacFarlane might have in store in future stories. Overall it was my favorite two-hours of Orville thus far, and it even exceeded BOBW in one respect, in showing us a kickass battle.
