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. —KGF Vissers
A previous review and 1 star rating forced me to reply and rate it at 10 stars for the sake of sanity
The only other review posted before this one is either a joke (which I hope it is) or as time deaf as it accuses this episode of being. Rating this (or ANY) episode of a show as 1 star because it does not single handedly rid our real world of every form of gender inequality that has ever existed is absolutely insane. It's only a TV show; it has to work within the framework of the show as a whole that has come before it, and within that framework has to try to tell an interesting story. If within that story they can try to get a bigger message across, that's all well and good, but what the previous review was bashing is just absurd. One of their complaints was that Sirtis apparently did not get top billing as a guest star, another was that Frakes directed this episode and he happens to be male. No show is perfect, but to review bomb a show that is making a attempt to actually further a cause only because it didn't go so far over the top as to cast aside everything else about itself in that attempt is insane; to attack something that is trying to help your own cause just sets your own cause back. Just to counter that precious review bomb I rated this ep a 10 just to set things back to as close to even as possible, so hopefully the rest of the reviews will actually rate the episode on the merits of what it actually is instead of some hateful insanity directed at an episode of a very good show that is doing its best to both entertain and move perceptions forward (even if some people are ungrateful for it's attempts to do so).
