    I was pretty surprised by the turn of events at the end. It seems like they are planning on wiping out all organic life, or at least the sentient kind. Overall I really liked the episode for the sci-fi value and I'm really looking forward to next week.

    I have no idea what to think about this episode. I enjoyed it until the twist. I thought, "Where could they possibly go from here?" but then the boarding party went onto The Orville. I thought that was a little silly. Actually the whole thing seems uninspired. Like I said, I assumed when the twist happened it must mean the end of the series because there is no way The Union should be able to defend itself against this advance race that has basically turned all of its knowledge over to Isaac. It seems like they should have known how to protect themselves against Union weaponry.

    Anyway I know I am reading too much into it. I also know there will likely be some twist happy ending or something next week. Just wish it was better.

    Once they mentioned the spheres, I guessed they might be up to something. I reckon Isaac will be the key to stopping them. Was a bit weird that they knew everything and had all the tech but were disabled by starfleet weaponry.

    Missing the comedy slightly but interested to see where this goes...

    So here’s a theory I’ve just been introduced to... What if the Keylon’s are actually just playing a practical joke on the Union? ...I mean Issac cut off Malloys leg cos he thought it would be funny...

    No they're dead. But the Robots are just like "Oh what's the big deal? Just bring them back to life. Oh you can't do that? Wow you people are so primitive..."

    Would be funny, but a bit dark for a comedy!

    Maybe not a practical joke, but what if it was a test?

    Even had references to ST: TMP, with the musical reference tp V'Ger.

    Well I liked this episode, if a bit cliche.

    The origins of the Kaylon are pretty simple. Of course a species of robots didn't spring up on a planet without the guiding hand of organics.
