The Orville - Battle for Earth.

Post by Deimos »

Spoilers if you haven't yet watched The Orville's Season 2 ending episode.

But, with that said, did anyone else watch the big ship battle? man, I wish Star trek had battles like that!

Took me a while to get into The Orville, I just didn't like the over the top forced humour in season 1, but it really did improve in Season 2.

Star Trek had some awesome battles, especially DS9. To bad there has been no Star Trek since 2005. But yeah, that was a very good episode of Orville with a great battle. I just wish they'd come out with the next season already.

The only thing I didn't like about the battles in DS9, was the lack of shield effects and all those tacky looking fireball explosions whenever a weapon hit a ship.
I think the only time you saw a shield was when it was the Defiant Vs the Lakota.
But I do get it, rendering shields on multiple ships probably would've cost a fortune, but the ships just felt way too weak in DS9, especially the large D'Deridex/Galaxy classes which vs the weapons platforms were like paper mache.
