I was not terribly impressed with the new security chief. The Badass Stereotype doesn't excite me and they really laid it on thick with her punching captains and picking people up by the neck and so forth. She seems especially out of place on the Orville, where even the biggest Badass from Planet Badass is a big Teddy Bear who hatched an egg.
My favorite part of the episode was the beginning, when Orville received the signal from the alien planet and everybody freaked out with excitement over the prospect of a first contact. That's my kind of Science Fiction and we haven't seen anything like it since the early days of Enterprise. It's too bad that the ensuing story turned into such a downer. A beginning like that deserves a better ending.

For the Orvilleans, they use the Earth standard reckoning, while the others would use their own reckoning to calculate the age, and their own respective calendars to guesstimate the birthday.
That's how I'd argue it ... albeit, for TV, I imagine they would hand-wave the matter just for convenience considering they are writing for an Earthly audience.

Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.

Enjoyed this one. Decent debut for Jessica's character in the thankless role of following in Sage's footsteps. All of her dialog sounded like it was originally written for Alara. We'll see if she's nothing more than an Alara clone in upcoming episodes.
