Zero budget..... and it was still better than DISCOVERY!
Here's a link to my review of the first season of The Orville for anyone who wants to check it out:
This show is pure awesomeness!
That it is!
Yep! More true to TREK than those idiots at Paramount can ever manage.
News about Season 2 of The Orville
I would love to see as many actors from TOS and TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT appear as possible.
And I suspect that it will get to that point too.
What would be nice is if some are written and played ambiguously - as if they could be their TREK character who has wound up in this alternative universe of the Orville. Jonathan Frakes as "Will" or "Tom" for instance; the local crazy hermit who insists he worked on a starship once, found on some backwater planet.
Fans could blog away to their heart's content, pondering: "Was That RIker?" etc.
The Orville is an American science fiction comedy-drama series created by and starring Seth MacFarlane that premiered on Sunday, September 10, 2017. New episodes aired Thursdays on Fox during the 2017–18 season. MacFarlane stars as Ed Mercer, an officer in the Planetary Union's line of exploratory space vessels whose career took a downturn following his divorce, and who is given the titular ship as his first command, only to discover that his ex-wife, Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki), has been assigned to be his First Officer. Inspired by the television series Star Trek, the series tells the story of Mercer, Grayson, and the crew of the Orville as they embark on various diplomatic and exploratory missions.
On November 2, 2017, Fox renewed the series for a second season, which is expected to premiere late in the 2018–19 season
