* ShipShapeShipwreck: The Orville in the BadFuture is in remarkably good shape, considering it was badly damaged in battle, crashed into the ocean, and sunk to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. The latter part is the worst, because even with full deflectors the shuttle they use to reach the ship is almost destroyed, and the Orville has been down there for 9 months on minimal power. The bar is even intact with intact bottles of alcohol, and when they power up the ship everything works normally, and no damage is discussed. Noone discusses how the ship could've possibly survived, or even gives a TechnoBabble explanation as to how it wasn't flattened like a beer can by the pressure (starships would have no way to survive very much pressure as they are designed to operate in a vacuum). It's particularly notable that they are able to drain the flooded shuttle bay and establish normal pressure (1 atm), when the pressure on the ship is 1071 atm. A simple HandWave about emergency deflectors keeping the ship intact would've been sufficient.
