Again, you're trying to make the argument that Total Eclipse is some brilliantly original special snowflake that needs the first two episodes to make the plot make sense. Because nobody in the world is already familiar with this genre of science fiction and they would be hopelessly lost if they started from episode 3 with just some general worldbuilding.

And that idea is not even remotely valid.

If painstakingly illustrating Yui's entire backstory (which wasn't even an intended part of her character in the books, but whatever) is that important to you, then at least hold it off as a flashback later in the series like they do with Felicia in Sora no Woto. That way it would at least fit in the overall narrative context.
