    This show reminds me of Star-Trek thats not Star-Trek intentional or? I know it's from the creator of FarScape but it looks very Trekky to me except it isn't is it off-brand Trek? Am i wrong? Smile

    It is absolutely intentional. It is known how big a fan MacFarland is of Star Trek, and he has worked with the TNG cast and Patrick Stewart specifically multiple times. I believe I read that some of the TNG set designers were brought in to bring everything to life.

    The Orville launched about the same time as Star Trek: Discovery, but unlike Disco it was launched on network TV originally here in the US instead of the then new and very limited CBS All-Access (now Paramount+) streaming paywall. It was nice to have that free alternative show that was spiritually along the same lines as Star Trek even though it was separate and distinct from Trek canon (and at the time a bit cruder but "nu trek" seems to be embracing that a bit too). Now that The Orville is also on streaming it will be interesting to see how it compares, but at least the first episode of the new season was a nice start after a long hiatus for the show.
