And I am curious why they chose not to have a teleporter/transporter.

Special mention for Doctor Cassidy Yates. She is also very good on her own.

On the topic of Ed and Kelly - she put in a good word for Ed with the admiralty to help get him a command. Did she also request the First Officer position, or was that something that the admirals made part of the deal? As in "You think he deserves a command? Fine, but you have to watch him!" Certainly she seems like she would be a great captain.
And I just remembered that those red aliens that kidnapped Ed and Kelly had transporters (or something that at least looked like a transporter/teleporter), so the technology exists in The Orville universe, but the Union doesn't have it (yet). They could do The Enemy Within with good/evil Ed Mercers. What would that be like?

Your dump comment was more crass than your usual comments.
When you wipe someone's butt on a daily basis, you tend to be pretty desensitized to it. Having young children changes you.
Although, to be fair, I've always been willing to make poop and penis jokes. Mostly to annoy Pong, but I still have done it.

I know that they show has already been renewed for a second season, but my guess is that this is one of those shows that has a good first season, and then limps along. I'm sure it won't be as bad as Heroes, but it'll need to grow quite a bit to maintain quality for very long.

That one episode with Alara going through the holodeck simulator was really similar to the TNG episode where Dr. Crusher gets stuck in the spacetime bubble, but other than that I've thought they've been pretty original so far.

Side: My teen daughter just got home from school, she watched for a second as she was putting away her winter gear and then commented, So is this like a Star Trek rip-off?
And on that this show does not feel much better than Star Trek Continues.
