Both engineers install a field generator in the navigational array under John. Yaphit enters, asking if they need any help, and John says to check the power relays. The male engineer snidely says, "Yeah, try not to screw that up, too," and his female counterpart adds, "Yeah, no kidding."

Bruidians Edit

Bruidian Ambassador Edit

The Bruidian amabassador is the official envoy of the Bruidian species who represents the civilization's government to the Navarian government and the Planetary Union.[3]

In the early winter of 2420, the Bruidian ambassador is sent on a mission of diplomacy to the Orville. His mission is to oversee Union research on an ancient birthing bucket recovered from the planet Lopovius's original inhabitants. For years, the Bruidian and Navarian species waged a protracted and bloody conflict for control over the planet, both sides claiming descent from the early inhabitants over 30,000 years ago. If genetic material could be found on the bucket and tested, the Bruidian and Navarian governments agreed that a genetic match with the modern species would establish rightful domain over the planet.[3]

The Bruidian and Navarian ambassadors arrive with their staff, and hostility between the two erupts almost immediately in the Orville's Shuttle Bay. However, each ambassadorial team maintains a friendly attitude toward the Union officers, and Captain Mercer successfully calms each side down.[3]

Examination and testing of the bucket by the Union forensic archaeologist Darulio takes a week, an amount of time that strains the tenuous peace between the species. During that time, the ambassadors frequently clash, vowing escalating forms of attack on each other.[3]

Several days in, the ambassadors begin to suspect that the Union is plotting to manipulate the results for the other side. With Darulio's analysis still a day away from completion, hostility erupts into all-out war. Both ambassadors hail their governments' war fleets. Second Officer Bortus, as acting captain, confiscates their comscanners and confines them to their quarters. Unfortunately, the fleets were already hailed, and both militaries prepare for a showdown over Lopovius.[3]

Thankfully, Darulio knows how to buy the Union time: Nurse Henry Park synthesizes an artificial version of Darulio's powerful sex pheromones and plants it on the ambassadors. They are tricked into touching each other, thereby sharing the pheromones with each other and falling deeply in love.[3]

The Bruidian and Navarian ambassadors call off hostilities and proudly announce their romantic relationship to all. They leave arm-in-arm, and a temporary peace in hand.[3]

Bruidian Ambassador is played by Derek Mears.

After Isaac fails to convince him Alara makes a bargain with the Administrator if the Captain and Kelly are freed she will give them 21st century reality television to place within their exhibit instead.[1]

They ask Tomilin's mother questions about their ship but she does not understand, and fears they might be from the "Underland." Tomilin however realizes the crew is from "the Beyond" (outside the ship's ecosystem), which his mother chastises him as blasphemous thoughts.[4]

Alara and Bortus launch a search for the clown. The clown attacks Alara while inspecting the cargo hold of the Shuttle Bay. She later noted that the clown had superhuman strength rivaling her own. The clown manages to grab Alara's PM-44 and turns the setting from 'stun' to 'kill,' but Alara wrests it back and shoots him, killing him instantaneously.

The clown is credited simply as "Clown," played by (IMDB) Seth Austin.

Dressed in marshal attire, Ed, John, and Gordon confront Vásquez and his compatriots, holed up in a Spanish Colonial Revival building. From the rooftop, Vásquez refuses to surrender to the marshals for an unspecified crime. He then shocks Mercer and LaMarr by demanding a dance competition rather than a shoot-out. An amused Malloy tells the others that he quietly tweaked Vásquez's programming.[2]

In his final moments, Vásquez is seen dancing to 20th century dance music, saying, "You don't like it? I infuse many different styles of choreography to make the steps my own. You will be defeated, señor."[2]

Habitable moon species Edit

Characters from the species living on the habitable moon.

Feral aliens Edit

Around late 2419 or early 2420, the people of the habitable moon poison their water with the toxin polloxus. Those who did not die were rendered horribly disfigured. As food supplies dwindled, survivors were resorted to cannibalism to avoid starvation.[9]

Kitan says she cannot remove the nefolo because she's hiding a scalp rash. The man does not believe her, and threatens to upload a video to the Master Feed of her "literally pissing on [his] heritage" lest she remove it.

Unidentified Sarguns Edit

A pedestrian spots John as he attempts to flee the coffee shop as downvotes accrue. The pedestrian shouts, "Hey, that's the guy!," attracting a mob of Sarguns with their phones out.[11]

A television reporter announces that John LaMarr was filmed "performing a lewd act on a statue of Mella Giffendon" and encourages Sarguns to vote.[11]

Unidentified species Edit

Furry Alien Edit

Furry Alien is the credited title of an alien captive in the Calivon Zoo. After Ed and Kelly awake in the zoo for the first time, Lurenek and Furry Alien explain that they were captured and are now exhibits. Ed and Kelly stare in horror, which prompts commiserating laughter from Furry Alien.[1]

Furry Alien is played by (IMDB) Jeremy Guskin. The descriptor "furry" has brought confusion to fans who note that the alien is hairless and fish-like with slick, slimy skin.
