    Here's a question about episode 5
    Spoiler:
    does anyone understand the science of destroying a wormhole? How exactly can you do that?

    The Orville was renewed for a 2nd Season

    Maybe we can get a specific discussion area for the show now. These single threads are tough because I fear spoilers.

    This weeks episode was awesome, focusing on characters that usually get less attention. I have been pleasantly surprised by the character building being done on this show!

    If you guys are ready for a dedicated Orville folder, I'll make one. I'm enjoying the show and our episode guide on SciFi Stream is doing really well traffic-wise.

    I'm interested. I note the Discovery page at SciFi Stream is empty.

    That would be great, I'd like to discuss some specific episode type stuff and maybe even have threads for certain characters.

    I wonder if S2 will get 20 episodes or stick to 13. I like longer seasons, but sometimes you end up with better quality on shorter seasons.

    true , yes, like rick and morty, if the show wasn't so good, in story and art, I wouldn't bother watching it any more.

    Spoiler:
    I think they're starting to to milk the past relationship and split-up of Mercer & Grayson after Grayson cheated on him, even to the point of coming up with a semi-logical excuse for her betrayal. I smell a lot of shipping coming.

    Even though I really love this show, I really don't see Seth Macfarlane as a ship captain.
    In the previous episode, there was this scene of him entering the bridge and walking to his chair and I noticed he was slouched. How many ship captains walk like that excluding the old ones???
    Come on! I get that he's the creator and he gets to choose, but he should use his head. There is the physical factor to consider before casting, even when casting himself.

    Isn't that part of the fun of this show though? He's having a bad day, like we all do, and so he slouches into his office (the bridge) and kinda throws himself into his chair (the captains seat) with a sigh and gets to work. He's not military, he's just a normal guy that is the captain of a small ship in the future.

    Not military?
    Aren't all captains officers?
    He has the rank of commander and so does his ex wife whose walk is much more officer like.

    Civilian ships still have Captains and lower ranks of officer.

    But the Union in Orville is the same as Starfleet in Star Trek. They are not military organisations. They do have the capability to bring force to bare when necessary but a military implies that it is an organisation which is solely intended for attack and defence. That is not what is depicted in both universes.

    Picard pointed that out more than once but I still find this funny though. Not a military but can still hold ground with the most militaristic civilizations in the known galaxy...

    It's not as strange as you might think. It's merely a concept we haven't adopted in our modern day yet. We don't have an organisation like it which is so highly rooted in science and humanitarian ideals, but is so far out onto the edge of what is known that it has to know how to defend itself. Starfleet and the Union put science, diplomacy and exploration first, but while that might sacrifice the kind of single minded combativeness that comes from a military machine (as demonstrated in the shows with the Klingons or Krill) it is more than made up for by those science and diplomatic traits. The scientific focus allows the Federation to be more advanced technologically, even when you consider the main founders, humans, began as less so than their neighbours; while the diplomacy ensures that the Federation grows more freely and easily than via conquest and ensures that the benefits of working with the federation far outweigh the downsides (for the most part). Of course we still see those same officers as being trained in military tactics and all their ships are well armed... but the reason why they aren't considered military is that they do not rely on this first.
