Before Gordon is crippled by the perils of trying to teach cyborg Isaac pranking, the Orville responds to a distress call from a mining ship stuck on a comet about to crash on a star. The male crew is instantly charmed by the rescued sole survivor, captain Pria Lavesque, who even becomes the first after Ed's divorce to end up I his bed after drinks. Jealous ex Kelly gets reluctant Alara to help search the newcomer's guest quarters, where they find a mysterious impenetrable object, which has a worrisome use soon after, but Ed prefers to believe Pria's suspiciously knowledgeable help with a super-rare space peril is genuine proof of helpfulness, which is grimly disproved, seemingly too late.
