The Orville looks a bit like that Galaxy Quest TV series we deserved but never got
Star Trek spoofs are nothing new, but none quite manage to out-Trek Trek than Galaxy Quest. Now Seth MacFarlane has thrown his hat into the ring with The Orville which likes like another warm-hearted riff on the voyages of the Enterprise. Check out the trailer above.
It's looking likely that The Orville will actually beat the latest (and heavily delayed) Star Trek series, Star Trek: Discovery, to our screens when it arrives later this year. It stars Seth MacFarlane as Captain Ed Mercer and Adrianne Palicki as Kelly Grayson (who also happens to be Mercer's ex-wife), other familiar faces include Penny Johnson Jerald who appeared in Deep Space Nine as Cassidy Yates and frequent MacFarlane collaborator, Scott Grimes (American Dad, Family Guy).
