Two significant character deaths in a single episode.
With Admiral Perry reduced to space dust, Admiral Halsey may, unfortunately, be at the top of the Union command structure. Ted Danson will be missed.
I never really warmed to Charly, although her rebellious nature added realism to the overall crew attitude. How will they handle the next conflict requiring her unique, four-dimensional talent?
I didn't expect a Krill-Moclan alliance. The Moclans' agreement to share command with a female Krill seemed to come a little too easily, considering the rigidity of their all-male society.
Equally unexpected was the Union alliance with the Kaylon. Acceptance of a ceasefire in the face of an existential threat from the Union was a response worthy of Vulcan logic. If Charly's sacrifice made the Kaylons reason that at least some organics may not require extermination, perhaps it was for the greater good.
The battle scenes were great. Malloy and LaMarr finally got the opportunity to test the new Union fighters in actual combat.
If only they had been able to use the Force in their attack run.
