Storyline

The Orville is delighted with the weapon technology improvements installed by Moclan delegates Korick and Toren, but the secretive pair locks themselves up and uses abnormal energy. Sent to check up, Bortus, who actively opposes his mate Klyden encouraging son Tova to openly despise females, discovers the guests are hiding their girl baby, and agrees to keep silent until it's safely put on a cargo ship. Tova tells Klyden who informs the captain, who duly investigates, thus stumbling upon the hidden destination: a secret plant, inhabited by hundreds Amazone Moclan rebels. Their leader Heveena accepts Mercer's suggestion to apply for Union membership as sovereign republic. The Moclans send a spaceship to destroy the rebels as soon as the plea is handled, while their delegation threatens to desert the war effort by switching their alliance to the Krill, which would spell a Kaylon victory over the Union, which therefore desperately looks for a compromise.

a great follow up to About a Girl
12 April 2019 | by FranTeslaSee all my reviews

About a Girl was a fantastic episode of the first season, this one, follows up the story and enhances the message, is great so see Heveena again, is always good to see a well executed episode about civil rights, it has some minor editing issues, some scenes feel disconnected on the final cut, and only because of that I give it 9.5, for me Sanctuary is About a Girl part 2
