Old WoundsEdit

Main article: Old Wounds.
During roll call of the senior staff, Captain Mercer is impressed by Finn's credentials, which include molecular surgery, DNA engineering, and psychiatry.

When the Orville's ground team arrives at Epsilon 2, Finn marvels at the Epsilon Science Station. After being shown the facility's newly developed quantum accelerator, which has the power to move time forward at an increased speed, she informs the team that manipulation of the flow of time is theoretically possible.

Later, she is grabbed by Derek Ashton, a lab technician and Krill spy, and held hostage. A physicist standing nearby, Janice Lee, approaches Ashton, who pushes her into the quantum accelerator, killing her in seconds. Finn is freed when Lieutenant Alara Kitan throws a piece of equipment at Ashton. With Ashton restrained, she scans the corpse of Lee to confirm her death and says that her age at death was approximately 125 years.

While on board a shuttle, she dresses a wound on Mercer's shoulder.
