A new series from creator Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) The Orville is a one-hour science fiction series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel. Its crew, both human and alien, faces the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace…even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship.
This series somehow mixes Star Trek and Galaxy Quest in a mash-up that has potential. The question is whether FOX will let this science-fiction series last past ten episodes?
