The Orville

Any other Star Trek fans out there who’ve basically jumped ship to this show? :stuck_out_tongue:


It’s just so much better than the counterpart. New Eden is the sole episode of Discovery so far that’s actually felt like Trek, whereas the Orville has been doing it for a season+

The use of practical effects and the better characters helps so much as well.

Love this show. Season 2 has been pretty good so far and is more Star Trek than current Star Trek is. You can tell a lot of care and love for the genre went into this, and I can’t wait to see more.


The point about characters is an especially good one–Discovery has a handful of characters that have potential, but it’s mostly focused on Burnham, who…just isn’t super interesting. Orville, on the other hand, has a whole cast of characters who are both likeable and have received a fair amount of focus. That makes it more fun to watch, even during the episodes that aren’t as good.
