One of the most shocking thing I found out about Seth Macfarlane’s new TV science fiction series is that the Orville is an actual physical model miniature.

While I’m not one of those people that is opposed to CGI (I use it in my comics) however you just don’t see this any more; an actual physical miniature. This shows the actual care and respect that the creators of this show have for the the idea of classic science fiction series like Star Trek. Time will determine whether or not the creators of Star Trek Discovery have the same level of respect for the source material that Seth Macfarlane seems to have.

Seems the Orville has more respect for Star Trek than Discovery does

I will reserve judgement on Star Trek Discovery until I watch the trailer but so far I’m not impressed. In the meantime I will be watching The Orville.

The Orville is the Reboot that Star Trek Deserved

The Reboot that Star Trek Deserved

Watching episode 4 of The Orville after the pilot of Star Trek Discovery made me realize that The Orville is the reboot that Star Trek deserved.

I am so saddened by the direction the creators of Star Trek Discovery decided to take with one of my beloved franchises. It is fortunate that the market has provided me with an alternative until CBS/Paramount sort things out and bring back Star Trek the way it was supposed to be.

Those are not Klingons
WTF, thats no Klingon ship
10 years before Kirk, this is what the Klingons would have

For all the Star Trek fans who are disillusioned by the disappointment that is Star Trek Discovery the Orville is your show.
