Continuity mistake: When the Krill shuttles land, they park on either side of the entrance to Epsilon station, but when the Orville crew are escaping, the Krill shuttles are gone momentarily (during the firefight), only to return to their proper places a moment later as the Orville shuttle takes off.
Officer Alara Kitan: Captain, there's a message coming in from Admiral Halsey. It says that an executive officer has become available and can rendezvous with the Orville at station 794.
Captain Ed Mercer: That's great. That's barely out of our way. Who is it?
Officer Kitan: He wants me to forward it to you privately.
Captain Mercer: Alright, send it to my station. [Reads message.] No. No, no, no, no.
Lieutenant Gordon Malloy: What's the matter?
Captain Mercer: [Running out of room] No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Admiral Halsey: We would have offered you a command earlier, but you haven't really inspired anyone with all that much confidence this past year.
Ed Mercer: I know. I ha... I've had some personal stuff that's been going on. It's not really worth getting into. Can I have one of these mints?
Admiral Halsey: Those are marbles.

Question: I get that this may be an involved answer! They say the 2D beings are likely unaware of their presence, "because the cross-section is so small." But surely that doesn't really matter - a 3D person could be sliced in half by a wire the thickness of a hair, and they'd still be killed, so doesn't that apply to 2D being as well? They'll be leaving a trail of destruction in their wake, cutting buildings in half, etc., and none of them seem to care.Jon Sandys
