    Right... but shipping doesnt involve opening. It just seemed kinda dumb as an excuse plot to let Gordon have his weird romantic fling with a hologram of a dead chick. Like Endus said if they found the time capsule floating around in outer space it would have atleast made a little more sense.

    Beyond that, I agree; it makes no sense, the Orville would have no reason to be involved.
    The reason it was on-board was because they had the archaeologist come visit the Orville and he happened to have it.

    programmer wise point of view, it would be really easy to just delete/change involvement in the end of Greg? (like make in saying no to be back to her) and Gordan keeping all the chick personality and her as boyfriend

    but y, plot drama

    The old lets make sense of the sci-fi show game. A long time tradition in insanity. Everyone will need a cigarette after this for sure.

    Except that the entire program is derived from her data. Removing Greg removes a big chunk of that data, and that changes her. That's the point.

    If he's going to keep tweaking her program until she's "perfect", then it's no different from making a digital "girlfriend" in the simulator, which was always possible. And you can tell that nobody thinks highly of someone who's idea of an ideal girlfriend is a totally subservient minion you're in complete control of.

    The entire point of the endeavour was that none of this was programmed in; it was as close to "real" as you could get in the simulator.

    i know, what i said was he remove the final Greg event, she was already in love with Gordon, changing that encounter when she and Greg come back together would be totally doable and she would be the same girl we saw in the entire episode and maintaining her personality

    basically would be the real until that point and Gordon could even stopped the events past that point and create news ones with both of them (like the singing duo)

    just saying would be easily doable if they wanted to with her 100% personality but that would require the show to hire her :P

    And at that point, you're just coding your perfect fake VR sim-friend, not actually falling in love with a real person.

    That was the point of the episode.

    Well another episode dropped, and it continues to impress me how well this show is written.

    I really enjoyed this week's episode, I thought the use of Dolly's Parton's 9-5 was truly excellent!

    It was the second best use of that song after it's use in Deadpool 2.

    When was it used in Deadpool 2?

    Also really good episode. I liked seeing more of the inner workings of the union and the various different races.

    Kelly / Adrianne Palicki has such a gorgeous face (and those eyes!) but I think she's a little bit on the thin side. Probably not unhealthy thin, but I dunno, her legs seemed really skinny in that outfit.
    Anyway, it's just an observation, she's beautiful.

    At the end of the episode: Ruh roh!

    Also, I didn't realize Adrianne Palicki was that tall. I mean FFS Jessica Szohr isn't exactly short at 5'5".

    Was not expecting that ending. So the question is will this effect the main crew or was it a seperate timeline?

  19. #359
    So it seems this was the first of some kind of two part episode. Ep. 14 is probably the last one of the season.

    13: "Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow (Part 1)"
    14: "The Road Not Taken (Part 2)"

  20. #360
    Well that answers my question then. So if past Kelly rejecting Ed changes the current timeline I wonder who will be the one to realize something is wrong and fix it. Also, still hasn't been picked up for season 3... damnit Fox renew the show.
