Trivia

When Captain Pike and Number One are conversing near the replicators, one of the replicator units is labeled A-113. A-113 is an inside joke, an Easter egg in media created by alumni of California Institute of the Arts, referring to the classroom used by graphic design and character animation students including John Lasseter, Tim Burton and Brad Bird.

Goofs

At 30:50, when Lt. Gen Rhys talks about the energy buildup from the sphere, he tells "10.000 degrees Kelvin", and a few seconds later, "20.000 degrees Kelvin". He shouldn't use the word "degree" but simply state "10.000 Kelvin" and "20.000 Kelvin". See more »

Why they are always in a hurry?
15 February 2019 | by AliensReservoirSee all my reviews

Far better than last week, still some weirdness, but i did enjoy the story between suru and the girl, even i knew he will not die (I thought it will evolve to something else). They also tried to put some fun/pun, which is nice and relaxing. But overall it's a nice episode with a more solid story "a la" true star trek, they need to slow down though... We want to relax while watching a star trek not running. (The Orville is way better in my opinion, but this particular episode reconciled me with STD)
