A trip to Moclus produces unexpected results.

When The Orville’s Away Shuttle enters the Moclan atmosphere, Dr. Finn notes the universal industrialization of the planet. It’s a reddish brown planet that looks littered with smokestacks and metal everywhere. Explosions litter the air as Cpt. Mercer mentions the primary Moclan industry is weapons development. Explosions are everywhere because there are no regulations against them.

The Away Shuttle gets rocked twice by nearby explosions, and Commander Grayson communicates down to Moclan air traffic control to find out WTF is happening. The Moclans apologize for the recently planned explosions, and their omission from the provided flight plan.

  • Cpt Mercer: “Thanks for thinking of us.”

Lt. Gordon Malloy (Scott Grimes) is not quite as calm. In fact, he needs a new pair of pants, presumably because he defecated in his current pair.

Accordingly, he requests a new pair be ready at the Moclan landing zone. The Moclans willing comply with his request, and plan to have pants ready upon landing.

  • Grayson: “He’s kidding.”
  • Malloy: “No, I’m not.”
