The anthropologist in the trailer for the next episode sure looks, talks, and acts like the executive assistant for that group of pirates from several seasons ago.

Yes, that was definitely Noah. I was about ready to give up on this season, but I don't think I can resist a call-back to Heart of Archness.

I wasn't thrilled, but - that was a lot of setup to establish in twenty minutes and it was done in a way that felt lazy. But: twenty minutes. Everyone has to be established in this new iteration, the situation and backstory need to be filled in, and the catchphrases must be fired off in salute to remind the channelflipping chuds what they're watching. It's a terse pilot. But we also see the palette of references being drawn on, and in a way the great stories and tropes of space opera become characters themselves. It might become really fun, all the right pieces are there, but I like it when Reed gets experimental, and this seems a little by the numbers in terms of setup and jokes.

It's the same problem the last few seasons have had; the episodes are devoted to very methodically and mechanically moving through the beats/plot points of the particular genre. I chuckled at Cyril's suppressing fire but that was about it.
