Admiral Halsey orders the Orville to act as diplomatic forum for an attempt to settle the age-old war on the federation's border between Navarian and Bruidians which each claims to have colonized first, as they agreed to let a forensic archaeologist settle whose DNA is on the eldest artifact found there. The crew duly fears trouble when the expert proves none other then Darulio , the blue alien adulteress Kelly was caught in bed with by Ed. Although each professes to be professional about the situation, the exes turn hostile, but soon even they, like any crew member having been near Darulio, turns horny and pacific or romantically jealous, to the point of neglecting the delegations beyond their endurance. When this leads to a fleets stand-off, a surprising way out is suggested on top of the forensic findings.
Did You Know?
The concept of an alien that provokes strong sexual desires from a ship's crew is also used twice in the Star Trek franchise: in the TNG episode "The Perfect Mate", and in "Star Trek: The Motion Picture", where the Deltan navigator Ilia is said to possess strong pheromones that affect humans. In the latter case, the effects are seen only in the extended cuts of the film. See more
