Also, this episode was way longer than previous episodes. Over 1 hour (without commericals).
When shows go from broadcast to streaming, the writers and directors often comment that they enjoy the freedom to use whatever time they need to tell their story, be it 45 minutes or 75 minutes, rather than force the procrustean fit into a network time slot. I thought these guys went a little overboard with their newfound freedom, however. They could have cut plenty out of that episode without harming it any.

Target demographic is the only thing that matters. The general public wants to see things fly like an aircraft, not a technically accurate depiction of a space craft.
Keep in mind also that some writers learned everything they think they know about science from watching previous Sci-Fi shows. Combine that with directors routinely ignoring any advice they get on technology and it's a miracle when anything changes.
