Who are you teasing, I’ve seen it. I was merely pointing out your Incompetence at counting, which you doubled down with the missed tease.

A bonus from the last US episode, cut for time not for fun.

Great to see this back last night, and what a strong episode! Yes, it was very much a rip off of the "holo addiction" type of stories done by Star Trek, but this had its own take which worked. I also loved the cigarette subplot.

I never really understood the holodecks in Star Trek, basically u can do it with anyone person in history but all anyone did was spend their time pretending to be a secret agent or something. I think Quark hinted at a seedier side to it.

The thing is about holodeck episodes is that they retain the science fiction element, even if it is a money saving 'bottle episode'. Obviously this is something Star Trek needed to do as well and understandable given the recent two parter probably blowing quite a bit of the effects budget. This one was really well done.

You could in TNG, but in DS9 Quark's seedy programs needed a scan of the person to create the holo-image. Or at least for currently alive people it did. Didn't someone try to get one of Kira in one of the episodes?

I think it'll be fine, I imagine if for some reason FOX say no, then someone else will pick it up.

I imagine there must be so sorts of uncertainty at fox at the moment with the Disney acquisition while they work out what the want to keep, while new management structure takes hold.

I am sure there will be some surprise decisions this year and I really hope they don't can The Orville.

hopefully its just the takeover. One thing I noticed in the show, the lack of Isaac interaction after the 2 parter, not even a mention people not trusting him so much.

Also I can't believe Grimes is engaged to Adrianne Palicki, he is punching way above his weight

Seriously? Obviously, anyone would even if I hadn’t known she was coming months ago.
