Seth MacFarlane’s Star Trek/Galaxy Quest Show The Orville First Trailer Hits

FOX is jumping back into science fiction hardcore with their upcoming series The Orville from writer/creator Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy). 

The show, on the outside at least, resembles some kind of mashup between Star Trek and greatest-Star-Trek-film-ever Galaxy Quest, with pretty bitchin’ sets.  FOX just released the first trailer over on twitter:

Early reports from sources say the series is very likely the “best Trek we’ll get this year”, and with how things are going for CBS’s much maligned Star Trek: Discovery, this joke quote doesn’t seem that far off.

Love or hate, he is a very well known fan of the science fiction medium (and HUGE Star Trek fan).  He is arguably the best person FOX currently has under contract to undertake such a project.  Oh, did we mention that Star Trek alum Brannon Braga is on board too?  Because he is.

The directorial list isn’t too shabby either, touting Braga,  James L Connely, Jonathan Frakes, MacFarlane, Robert Duncan McNeill, and freaking Jon Favreau.

FOX released this gallery of first look images for the series today too, and it looks pretty great:

We haven’t gotten a premiere date yet, but we do know The Orville will be hitting FOX sometime in the Fall.
