When the Krill disable the shuttle's engines, the shuttle's forward momentum quickly slows until it is barely moving. In the airless void of space, the shuttle should have kept drifting at its previous speed. See more »

Wow, just wow, no word gives it more meaning than this.

This is what sci-fy is all about, the emotions, the twist and the lore building is fantastic. You get the same feeling like watching one of the great Star Trek episodes, or movies like Enemy Mine. This has the heart and soul all the other shows seem to lack, and it has that something more hope, something we don't get to see much in shows these days, this is what I have hoped STD would have been, but I don't care anymore about Star Trek it's The Orville we need to have more of. I really hope this comes out on some blue-rays soon. And that music was spot on, sad, funny and hopeful again :)
