They're performing an experiment to see how many trekkies will continue to watch a show called Trek regardless of story quality, character quality or disruption of canonical show history.

You mean they're trying to replicate the results of Enterprise?

That was a pretty good military sci-fi episode, but it had 10 minutes or so of lag at the end, and an unsatisfying conclusion.

The latest episode of the Orville was pretty good but, as with the episode about the future time traveler who kidnaps/snatches people from her past/our present just before they were destined to die anyway, they left what could have been a FASCINATING moral debate there on the table. Basically: when that blue alien species goes into heat, it secretes a pheromone that essentially causes irresistible feelings of love/horniness in anybody it comes in contact with; meaning, if I personally have any of this chemical on me (despite not even being of that species), ANY LIVING BEING I touch and put that chemical onto will fall hopelessly in love/lust with me (and I presumably will return the emotion), even if my gender or my very species is one you ordinarily would not want sexually.

Seriously -- if you're imagining some future Federation-type group with multiple species all trying to live together in harmony -- this is a HUGE legal can of worms. This is like a date-rape drug only a thousand times worse.

The episode ends with the revelation that the blue alien was also in heat/secreting the lust hormone when Captain Seth MacFarlane's wife cheated on her husband to have sex with said blue creature.

Agreed. Of course, it was supposed to be a cliff-hanger, but I don't see anyone with bated breath (he said, stringing up metaphors) until January.
