After the Orville confronts a Krill spaceship attacking a federated plant colony and captures a shuttle, admiral Ozawa orders to use it with an anatomic disguise devise to go undercover aboard the major ship. Captain Mercer and pilot Malloy must pretend to be sole survivors of a battle with humans, win Krill captain Haros's trust and get insight in the 'Krill Bible', the secret basis of their inflexible religion of Avis, which gives them a sense of divinely ordained superiority rendering peaceful coexistence with other species pointless. As if the suspicious ship 'chaplain' requesting a guard to the chapel weren't bad enough, the infiltrators discover a super-weapon aboard but get conscious issues about the Krill school children and their teacher to Ed's taste, Teleya.
Did You Know?
When the Orville team returns to the Krill chapel, they are seen by Krill security and fired upon. The Orville team ducks and the camera views the security team from over the altar. No Holy Book is seen. However, later in this scene, the book is back on the altar. See more
Lt. Gordon Malloy
Okay, let's hear it. How did you dump him? Everyone wants to know.
Lt. Alara Kitan
There's nothing juicy to tell. I just told him that if he couldn't get comfortable with our differences, then there was no point dragging this out.
Lt. John LaMarr
And by "differences", you mean the fact that you could bench press him with one arm.
Lt. Alara Kitan
Apparently, having a girlfriend with ten times your physical strength makes a guy feel emasculated.
