Sign me up! I will be available this week to draft on the day. 
It really sets up Season 2 nicely. It is amazing how tight some of the storytelling is, considering its airdates. It isn't fully serialized, but it is as close as you can be and not be serialized. 
It only gets better, Codename. Keep watching. One of the best episodes of Season 1, Duet, mostly just features Kira and a guest star, but damn it is fine television. 
Would a female directed Moby Dick be different? If Michelle MacLaren or Katheryn Bigelow decided they wanted to do it what looks or sounds different?   Maybe as a white male who lives in a mostly Red Bible belt state, but has an English degree, I am sensitive enough to think it wouldn't change, but doltish enough to not realize how it would be different.

So, we have played two games of Twilight Imperium 4, and a game of Ascendancy. Both games of TI were set up by 11am on a Saturday, rules explained until about 1130, then played one round and took a lunch. We have finished by 815pm both times.  We randomly assigned seats, and randomly divvied out race choices. We took out the races we played in the first game,  limiting our choices, so, we only have 5 unplayed races at this moment.  Link of the images of the race player...
  I need to ask for clarification on this. Why do you think Rushmore is monstrous?  I have never been, and honestly only seen North by Northwest and that one Simpson's episode.
