An exploratory ship from Earth faces intergalactic challenges 400 years in the future.
Set 400 years in the future, the show follows the adventures of the Orville, a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar Fleet. Facing cosmic challenges from without and within, this motley crew of space explorers will boldly go where no comedic drama has gone before.

Somewhere between ST: TOS and TNG, fleet personnel became high-minded, super-moral, flawless beings… a picture of who we should be when we’re at our best, but not a true reflection of who we ARE. And then you remember how human TOS people were — bickering, flawed, sometimes racist or rude.
The Orville’s first episode is funny, but it’s not a parody. It puts people with personalities of friends and co-workers you already know and love (or hate) into roles they might actually have aspired to in the future. They’re a bit irreverent, unprofessional, perhaps a bit childish with a sense of office humor, drama, and politics. But, it’s not over the top.
It’s a little bit ST: Atlantis, a little bit Guardians of the Galaxy, a bit of Galaxy Quest, and a LOT of Star Trek. It’s not Shakespeare, but it’s fun, yet grounded. I’ve only seen the first episode, so no way to know where it will go. I recall the first episode of ST TNG was pretty rocky, and I think this is off to a better start. Give it a shot!
Once again the “professional” critics still think that even in the trying times we’re living in, we want everything to be dark and gritty. They are stuck in the 2000-2010 decade where everyone was floored by Christopher Nolan’s Batman performance and the Debut of “Walking Dead which ushered in the pop culture’s shift to a darker take on fiction.
The critics don’t understand those of us who want to go back to a universe where nobody has to work hard for food, shelter, water, and health. Everything you need is generated out of an abundance of energy, you can go wherever you want in the known galaxy, and there’s a sense of wonder, awe and adventure. We want a future where people aren’t mindless, humorless drones going about their day, a future where most of your energy and focus goes on the people you care about and an enrichment of your hobbies, skills, and knowledge, not the drudgery, fear, monotony, and negativity of everyday life. Star Trek fans have been hungering for a series like this since TNG ended in 1994. 23 years was far too long a time to wait, but the wait is finally over!
Aside from a pilot drinking a beer while flying, no interaction between the crew, no matter how crass or juvenile they get with each other, seemed to be all that much more unlikely than a normal interaction between co-workers. It makes the crew relatable and is not that hard to believe would be how humans in their situation would use humor to form bonds and diffuse stressful situations.
As this was the very first episode, there were some moments where improvements could have been made in dialogue or pacing, but overall it was a great show. Besides, it took Star Trek TNG more than a whole season before “growing a beard” and finding its stride.
Halston Sage (Alara Kitan) has left the show, most likely due to other work commitments. It is unlikely she will return, however, the Producers have left the door open for her.
I have seen where people have said that they are gaming chairs that were used to make these. I am not sure. It you are saying the mask(s) from Scream then yes they do a bit.
It is in the making and last information indicated that it would be aired late in 2020 on Hulu.
Seth attended and studied animation at the Rhode Island School of Design and, after he graduated, he was hired by Hanna-Barbera Productions (Now called Cartoon Network Studios) working as an animator and writer on the TV series Johnny Bravo (1997) and Cow and Chicken (1995). He also worked for Walt Disney Animation as a writer on the TV series Jungle Cubs (1996). He created The Life of Larry (1995) which was originally supposed to be used as an in-between on MADtv (1995). Unfortunately the deal fell through but, a few months later, executives at FOX called him into their offices and gave him $50,000 to create a pilot for what would eventually become Family Guy (1999).
Since Family Guy’s debut, MacFarlane has gone on to create two other television shows-American Dad! (2005) and The Cleveland Show (2009). MacFarlane began to establish himself as an actor, voice actor, animator, writer, producer, director, comedian, and singer throughout his career.
