This is his last chance to prove himself, after a year of poor performance in the aftermath of a divorce. On their way to their first mission, they stop to pick up Mercer’s new first officer — his ex-wife, Commander Kelly Grayson. Joining Ed on this adventure is a crew packed with colorful characters from all over the galaxy.

The series features many connections to Star Trek. Penny Johnson Jerald (Kasidy Yates on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) plays Doctor Claire Finn. Fellow Star Trek alumni Brannon Braga, Robert Duncan McNeill, David A. Goodman, James Conway, and Jonathan Frakes are involved behind the scenes. Other Trek series actors have made guest or cameo appearances on The Orville.

In 2019, Dark Horse Comics released a limited run of comics based on The Orville TV series.
