There was no new episode last week but the show put out this video that distills the six aired episodes of The Orville down to just over eight minutes. By stripping out the humor and sticking to the major plot points (SPOILERS obviously) it plays as straight space opera and homage to Star Trek.

I also just now realized after watching this that Alara grew eyebrows between the pilot and the second episode. I don’t know why I didn’t notice before.
