Season two of The Orville began with a healthy dose of Moclan culture and some festering emotional scars from season one. The third episode turns its focus on Alara, as she visits her home planet of Xelayah, with Ed and Gordon... as seen in last weeks promo.

...yeah, that’s an awful promo. It would seem that the Krill are back. Other than that, it’s a bit of a disjointed mess. I’m going to keep an eye out to see if everything in the trailer makes it into the episode.

Oh, and a visit to Xelayah wouldn’t be complete without a run in with Alara’s disapproving father, Ildis Kitan. Star Trek alumn Robert Picardo returns to The Orville.
